So I started to create some of my own. Using one of my diecut machines I have created a number of stencils that I enjoy using. And they are very economical because I used cardstock that I have in my stash.
The great thing about these stencils is that even though they may have been designed for art journaling, they can be equally creative on scrapbook layouts. So my project this month uses one of my stencils I created on a scrapbook layout. Here is the stencil I cut: Since the setting for the layout is a brick and mortar building, I decided to use this brick pattern.
So I start my layout by adhering the stencil on a piece of yellow cardstock and spraying it using a Dylusions ink spray. You can also use any acrylic paint or color stains. Here is the layout:
So why not try using some masks on your layouts. Remember they are not just for art journaling.
