Hi all! Laura here with you today, sharing a way to use some of the fun
Clear Scraps stencils to create a spooktacular Halloween LO!
I love using stencils to take a plain sheet of paper and create an entirely new look with
just a little ink, pen or paint! On the left side of the page, I used the Clear Scraps
6" bulb stencil. This stencil is easy to use to create an entire border by layering it.
I used black distress ink to stencil it directly to the paper, and just continued to line
it up to do the next section and filled the entire 12" paper. Super simple! After that,
I took another Clear Scraps stencil, the 4x6" Oct 31st stencil. I started by stenciling
the "31" in the corner first. That made it easier to line everything up to get the look I was
going for. Then I stenciled in the "Oct" and the bats after.
I did also go back and use the stencil to trace around the "Oct" and the "31" with
a black ink pen to make that part of the stenciled images "pop" a little more.
It's so fun to create your own backgrounds using the Clear Scraps stencils!
If you haven't had a chance to peruse all of the options, make sure you take
a trip over to the Clear Scraps store and take a look! There are stencils for all
different seasons, occasions, and honestly my favorite are the background stencils!
The 6" bulb stencil is in that category in the store. You can find all of the stencils
They are such a fun way to create your own backgrounds and themed papers and
best yet, you can arrange it to fit your pictures when you create it yourself!
Thanks for stopping by today!
