To start off with there are many stencils available out there from the alpha stencils we used as kids to the fancy alpha and shape stencils available in scrapbooking and card making today.
With stencils you could use them to trace the image with your pens - this you might like to do for a title. But more fun techniques are using things like ink, spray ink, acrylic paint, modeling paste and chalks.
Here are a couple of layouts that I have used stencils on.
|This layout used the cutout from inside the stencil to |
create a make and inked over using an ink pad
|This layouts title was traced from a stencil|
|This layout used a stencil and modeling paste over |
the whole background of the layout
|On this layout I used the modeling paste and a stencil for the |
border and then sprinkled glitter over the top
|On the layout I used the stencil and spray ink to create|
the look of the chicken wire background.
Have fun and let me see what you create.
