The Clean and Simple Look with Stencils

Hi Everyone,

I love using stencils and don’t mind it when things get a bit messy but for my layout for the Get It Scrapped article on “Using Full PageStencils  or Die Cuts on Layouts” I wanted to show a more clean and simple look.

I am loving the look of white on white at the moment, so I created a white background using the Punchinella stencil from The Crafter’s Workshop and texture paste on some white card.  This look could easily be re-created on cards or other projects if you are not a scrapbooker.  It is a bit hard to get a good photograph of the background but you can definitely see the texture/pattern on the paper more clearly in real life.

I chose some colourful photos and created a fairly simple grid style layout, leaving the white background to show between my photos.  I photographed the mouse pad that my daughter had created at school for her dad for Father’s Day and used that photo to act as my title.

Feel free to leave me a comment if you have any questions or just want to say hi.  Thanks for stopping by,
