This is my process with using stencils or masks:
Step one: Decide where you want your photo stack to go and draw a rough outline with a pencil.
Step two: Choose your stencil and place it where you want the medium you are using to be visible.
Step three: Apply texture paste through the stencil with a palette knife. Be careful to not smudge when removing the stencil.
Step four: Leave to dry or dry with a heat gun.
Some close ups:
I added some texture paste through the stencil behind my photo stack as well as to the corner where I wanted to add a little cluster.
I added the large butterfly that I cut with the Silhouette Cameo to the back of my photo stack.
A little flower cluster with some Silhouette cut leaves mixed in.
You can get a wonderful effect when you use lots of layers.
Here you get an idea of my layering. I use my Tim Holtz tiny attacher to keep all the layers together.
