Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my very first post made for ARTplorations!
This time I decided to make a layout... I was a primary scrapper once and then moved to stamping and Mixed Media, but I still scrap and make layouts and keep own family memories alive.
So this layout is about our cruise to Greece last year.
I used Create magazine sketch that was just perfect for 3 photos layout.As we didn't know anyone on the cruise and were too shy to ask to take our mutual photos, the only photos we have are of each other by each other. I used themed paper and embellishments, but altered the background with stencils, texture paste, glitter and inks.
And ARTplorations stencils were just the great fit to this altered background.
I used Bubbles stencil with Peacock Feathers distress ink over the patterned paper and those are all circles you can see as the background.
Then I added Confetti Circles over the upper part of the basic cardstock and those are those lines in the sky.
The last, but not least are my glittered birds in the sky. Made with Some Birds stencil and white texture paste and then clear glitter was added to the wet paste and I heat embossed it a bit. The great thing about stencils is that you can use them from both sides and I really used it from the back to make the birds to fly to the " no photos" side of my layout.
So as you can see- stencils are not just for Mixed Media! If you are a scrapbooker you still can use them on your pages and to make each and every page unique.
