Enjoy Life...stenciling with Quick Quotes Powderpuff Chalking inks
Hello, Alicia with you today, I am attempting to finish my wedding album before my five year anniversary. I have been scrapping at a mad pace. Here I have used the new Spring Showers 102 paper as the background. I added scraps of 49 Shades of Grey papers to create a simple but elegant layout.
The key to the elegant aspect is the delicate stenciling on the background paper with Midnight Confessions Powderpuff Chalking ink. I did not ink generously as I usually do but sparingly to give a really light distressed print.
Here is another look at my focal points. The photo is a 5x7 and the strips are twelve inches long. I added a strip of silver fiber to the edge of the paper to dress it up. The silver also accented the silver beading along the edge of the flowers. Finally, I sprinkled some pearls throughout the layout.
