Over at the Simon Says Stamp blog the challenge is Stencils and Stamps. I decided to combine the two for a week in review page layout.
I wanted a more muted background so that it did not compete with my next layer. I used a Dylusions circle stencil and applied some light grey paint through it. I then covered up some parts with white gesso to knock back the paint a bit.
The next step is where I combine stenciling and stamping. I used various colors of Archival ink to stamp through a Balzer Design Arrows Stencil. I then traced the arrows with a black pen.
I added my journaling onto a piece of homemade washi tape.
Lastly I added in the saying and adhered my photos form the week.
So there you have a quick little page. Thank you for stopping by and be sure to check out the challenge.
