Fun with Stencils

Welcome to my February post.
Life has really got very hectic in my household and I am late with my post! Sorry

I am so excited to share my layouts today.  If you hadn't noticed I love using stencils and mixed media on my layouts.

I love how this one ended up.

I remember the old saying that blue and green should never be seen . . ., however I think they are very wrong, I love this combo.

I did this layout for a challenge which required you to use 3 stencils - right up my alley.

I have used a new Scrapmatts Hexagon stencil which comes in 3 sizes - very clever.  I used the large one with some clear texture paste onto a painted surface.  The paint wasn't fully dry which enabled it to spread through the stencil.  I then used the Cracks stencil with some green texture paste and then topped off the background with blue texture paste through the smallest Hexagon stencil.

To match the stencil I used Hexagon chipboard around my photo. Love how Scrapmatts have stencils and background chipboard of the same pattern.

The heart in the corner is made up of two pieces - I separated them and inked the inside in green and the outside in blue.  Love the final effect.

ST9002 - A4, A5 & A6 (available soon)
ST1008 - Stencil Cracks
CB 5123 -Hexagon Mesh 02
CB1236 - Scrap Words 22
CB1071 - Hearts 04

My next layout is more delicate!

Again I have used a stencil for the background.

ST5006 - Stencil Circles
CB1234 - Flowers 12
CB1236 - Scrap Words 22
CB1220 - Ornate Frames 22

Thank you for taking the time to  look at my layouts.
Hope they have inspired you to get messy with Stencils.

Until next month, when I hope things have settled down

Happy Scrapping



  1. Fabulous layouts Lisette! Love the backgrounds, Scrapmatts have so many great stencils to play with!

  2. I like the stencil too, they are a fun way to add texture and enhance the chipboard. Lovely work.
