Pretty Little Studio - technique challenge

"colorful circles"

the wheels start turning with a picture like this. behind scrapbooking, one of my favorite things is home decor and home DIY. so i saw this and it was hard not to paint a room or make a light fixture instead of work on a scrapbooking project!


i saw this light and then i recalled this fabulous stencil. i am PRETTY sure it is a studio calico stencil.
but instead of misting around, i used it as a stamp. easy to do. just mist the stencil in a box or on scrap paper, and then press it onto your paper. it "stamps" the image onto the paper.

did it again in the upper left hand corner, and i worked my paper, picture and embellishment around it. i have been in love apparently with my journaling pens and doodling lately. to help the stamped stencil work stand out, i just highlighted several areas with a black pen. it also helped the banner punch out to be outlined in black to stand out.

added embellishment bonus-i used the tag from an item i purchased at the American Girl store as an embellishment. throw away nothing! :)

so go get a stencil and STAMP with it! stretch those supplies further!

Pin It Now!
