For this Sunday's blog post the Allt Om Scrap design team played with different types of stencils and masks. It almost felt like this theme was chosen just for me, as I love using stencils on all my paper crafting projects. For viewing all gorgeous DT layouts, just follow this link!
For my layout I got the inspiration from the patterned paper from Studio Calico. I liked the geometrical circle flowers with bright colors, and wanted to try to repeat the pattern in the center of the background using a self-made stencil.
For that I simply draw the circle flower in Powerpoint, saved the image in jpg format, and opened in Silhouette Studio. Using the trace option you can convert all png and jpg files to cut files
I've uploaded the Studio cut file I made for you to use; just click this download link. The file contains two images:
- circle flower stencil
- cut-out circle flower
Hope you like it!
Here's my finished layout:
Black foam letters are from American Crafts, Amy Tangerine collection. Can't get enough of those! :D
I added some more texture to the background by stamping with grey and black ink. The stamps I used were from SODAlicious, Wycinanka, and Unity Stamps. Hot air balloon chipboards (Wycinanka collection) I colored black with embossing powder.
