Leaves, a stencil and metallic paint

Those leaves in my newsletter video found a home on this heritage page.  The page features the only photo of my parents on their wedding day.  They were married in the fall of the year.

For the background I wanted an elegant, soft look so I turned to the Damask stencil from Prima.  I covered it in white metallic craft paint which is one of the best deals in crafting. It is cheap and oh so gorgeous.  Working with stencils has become a passion.  In September, I'll have my latest class - Scrapbooking with Stencils available.  So stay tuned for more about that in a few days.

For color on this page, I'm continuing in the quest to use my supplies this summer. This time it is craft ink refills.  You could use most any type of ink refill for this resist technique or use gelatos, watercolors or regular ink pads.  I like how splotchy and drippy the effect is.

Also continuing on using up some Thicker packs.  For this title, we have consonants only.

You can see all the background process steps in this video:

To see the leaves, be sure to subscribe to the newsletter.  I'll send the August newsletter out to new subscribers at the end of the month.

Thanks for watching!
