  • To add some interest on the left margin, I used the Testure Disperse Stencil and an olive Prismacolor pencil.  I moved the stencil around and colored in the dots until I had a design I liked.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the new Memory Box stencils.  I'm playing with all sorts of ways to use them--inking, spraying, layering one stencil over another, and coloring inside a stencil for a hand-drawn look. I'm experimenting with lots of different materials and techniques.  Fun!  I hope you've gotten some stencils and have begun playing with them as well.

Happy Crafting!
