In Honor Of Stencil Girl




Hey there lovely creatives!

For this month's "In Honor Of' theme,  I am honouring my Grandparents with this Scrapbook Layout.


This is my Nana and Pa's Wedding photo - it is my favorite photo of them and it just beautiful.
Both of them have now passed away but their memory is living on through our family.

To create this page, I used a stencil that is coming out soon designed by Pam Carriker! and incorporated a few different techniques.  I have created a short video if you want to see the process.



Here are a few simple steps ...
 I started by using Dress Pattern and book paper to collage a base. Once dry, I used Distress Inks and Oxides plus Lindys Stamp Gang Sprays to add colour.


On a separate panel of cardstock, I used dress pattern again and used the stencil with heavy gesso to create a strip of interest across the middle. I then used a couple of Lindys Stamp Gang sprays to add colour and dimension.

I love how the gesso creates a resist with the spray.


I applied gel medium through a sponge and then added gilding flakes before brushing them off when dry - leaving an awesome finish.





I love the final finish of this page ... the layers of stenciling with gesso, sprays, inks and gilding flakes work so well together and all create a look that matches the photo really well.

Here are a few close ups.






 Thanks so much for stopping by!
