Family selfie – The Crafters Workshop

Hello lovelies, today I´d like to share a simple idea how to incorporate small stencilled details onto layouts.

While testing the gorgeous, new TCW stencils I randomly wiped some ink thru them onto a piece of watercolour paper. That is how I ended up with this 12×12 inch piece of paper full of different stencil images.

I was thinking I could use these images in little portions on a layout, so I first created a strong background for these images (I like colour and strong contrasts). I therefore chose a piece of black woodgrain cardstock and dabbed some white acrylic paint thru the „North Star“ stencil onto the background (one of my faves from the new collection, but just ONE OF many :)…).

Next I chose matching papers and embellishments to go with the stencilled images and colours and started creating and layering the layout. This is what my finished layout looks like:

I just love the new designs and they all work together so well!! I hope you get inspired to create with stencils!! Have fun 🙂
