September already! Where has the year gone? Hopefully you've spent at least some of it getting to play with some Scrapmatts stencils and chipboard like me. :) My first project for this month is a wooden photo frame I've decorated. I gave it a quick coat of gesso to start with, then sponged on a few different shades of Distress Inks through a beautiful Scrapmatts stencil, finishing with a quick varnish spray to stop the inks smudging. The leaf sprays were the perfect accent to my flower clusters and then I just popped a Scrapword in the negative space of the photo.
Scrapmatts chipboard: CB1146 Leaf Spray 01 and CB1241 Scrap Words 27. Stencil: ST1011.
My second project is a card I made to say thanks to my manager who is leaving for a new position. I like the mix of grungy and feminine on this card, by combining the messy background with a big floral cluster.
Scrapmatts chipboard: CB6020 Words 06, CB5144 Layered Poinsettias 01, CB5142 Retro Squares 02. Stencil: ST1038.
