What is Not to love about this stencil!!!

This is a layout that I created using Nat's fabulous crackle stencil.




I have used some impasto medium with the crackle stencil to create a wonderful dimensional effect on my layout background. To highlight the pattern I have used some chalkboard glimmer mist. This would have to be one of my fave and go to techniques with stencils.

Great layout! I check your blog regularly.. love your work! chefl@swbell.net

pat said...

Great technique. Beautiful layout

Cat said...


You have designed a beautiful layout, putting Nat's stencil to very good use. I can see quite a difference in some of today's scrapbook LOs compared to a few years ago. I suppose it's a crossover from mixed media. Well, whatever it is, I like it well enough to consider starting to do some scrapbook LOs. I have tons of old pictures from cleaning my mom's house out last December. Thank you for the inspiration!!

Sandy Karsten said...

This technique makes the stencil look like a road map. Very dramatic in that color too. Thanks for showing us and giving us a chance to win the stencil. Sandy Karsten sandyspds@charter.net

Camerageek said...

This LO is fantastic. What a great way to use the stencil and create your own background. You girls are just blowing me away on this hop.

Handgathered said...

...and what a great go-to technique it is. Awesome l.o.!
