My layout this week is sadly a rush job as I was working on the wrong project, and didn't find out my mistake until Thursday night. I hope you can't tell I struggled for inspiration. This week Jo wanted us to showcase her awesome stencils of which I only received earlier in the week. These are awesome, and who can't use more stencils?
I started with a Donna Salazaar paper and firstly using the bubble stencil I added some texture paste on both sides of the photo, I also inked thru the same stencil randomly around the page. Next came the wording stencil inked around the edge, very apt for the photo I think. I then added a bit of subtle colour by sponging ink on random places. The cogs were heat embossed, monkeys got painted then flocked, bird on top was glimmer misted. I've used another of the new zipper flowers I have just learnt to make. Finally to use the 3rd stencil required I inked on some birds
The page feels quite strange to me, I'm not sure whether its the pale colours I've used, or whether its just the fact that I didn't have too much time to think over things. Anyhow it has all come together quite nicely and shows off the photo well.
If you are following the blog hop correctly you would have come to me after visiting Jo, and now to continue on your way the next stop is Lilian. As usual please leave a comment here and every stop to be in with a chance to win the lovely prize. Good luck.
