Laugh - CREATE magazine - Scrapbook Generation

It is that time again....the July issue of CREATE is available for download now.  The magazine is downloadable HERE and the free sketches are available HERE.    The magazine is choc-a-block full of ideas and inspiration. This month the featured manufacturer is WeR Memory Keepers and Bazzill.  I want to share the first of 6 layouts that is published in this month's magazine.  For this challenge we had to use a stencil or mask.  Here is my page:

Product list:  Patterned papers: Prima: Cardstock: American Craft: Sticker: Prima; Wood Veneer: Prima: Chipboard: 2Crafty; Flowers: Prima: Lace: Prima; Title chipboard: Celebr8; Punches: EK Success, Martha Stewart; Stencil: Tim Holtz; Texture Paste: Daler-Rowney; Butterfly diecut and leaves: Silhouette Studio.

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.

Please download the CREATE magazine and be inspired by the Design Team.  If you are a South African please remember my monthly give away for July!!!  You can comment to enter HERE.
