January Technique Challenge: Stencil Me In

The January kit, All You Need is Love, includes an exclusive stencil. The cascading heart design is perfect for adding some love to your layouts with inks, paste, paint or mist. To encourage you to put your pretty stencil to work (or any others from your stash), our technique challenge this month is to use a stencil on a layout. I asked creative team member Mona to share with us her take on the challenge. Not only did she create a beautiful layout with the stencil, but she also shared photos of her process:

Monika used two different techniques with the stencil. First, she used mist over the stencil to color her background paper:

Monika also used pens to trace the stencil, filling in some hearts with stripes.

What other techniques do you like to use when creating with a stencil? We’d love to see and have you play along! Here are the details:

1. Create a layout using a stencil. We would love to see a Scrapbook Circle kit – and the heart stencil – in action, but any materials will do.

2. Post your layout to your blog, our Facebook page, or an online gallery. Copy and paste a direct link to your post into the comments on this post.

3. You have TWO WEEKS to play. Enter by 9:00 pm Pacific time on Wednesday, February 4th, to be eligible to win this fabulous Basic Grey J’Adore prize package!


Good luck and happy scrapping!
