Adding sparkle to your stencils by Sue Smith
For a fun, subtle sparkle to your stencilled background, try this technique below. I have used it make bubbles for a bath layout and one of children chasing bubbles.
Spray your background with colours and sprays of choice or leave blank.
Mix together a gel gloss medium (which dries clear) and some iridescent medium.

Leave to dry.
You will be left with a lovely, transparent, sheen, ready to decorate.
