#5 - How to make a stenciled background

I took this challenge a couple weeks ago with the Stencil Girl team: 

Challenge #10 Spray It! Ink It! Paint It! Smear It! Emboss It!Show us your inner mixed media diva! Use spray mists, inks, paints, modeling paste, embossing powder, pastels, chalk, and whatever messy media you can find! Let's dig into that hoard, pull out some of that "messy stuff," and use it up! There is a mess-maker hiding in all of you! Let her/him out to play!


Since I am trying to get more scrapbooking done, I did a scrapbook page for this challenge. Over the years, I have amassed QUITE the collection of cardstock; and inking, painting, etc is one way to dress up that cardstock to use for a layout. I am sure many of you are in the same boat as me. I am also incredibly tired of putting away patterned paper scraps. BORING! So when I read this challenge from Craft Hoarders Anonymous, I knew it was right up my alley!

For this layout I used ONE single piece of paper and the rest is all ink, paint, embossing, and sprays through StencilGirl Stencils. See more details on how to make this layout on the Hydrangea Hippo blog, including a video!
