Well it's Thursday again and this weeks challenge is a free week so I decided to post a double layout that I did using dreamweaver stencils on my page. Ok so I love, love, love sea horses, they are so beautiful and graceful. My husband and youngest daughter and I went to the Monterey Bay Aquarium to see the Sea Horse exhibit while it was there and here is part of my layout. I started by choosing a beautiful teal paper for my base, then I cut a piece of white cardstock 6x12, this is the panel I did my images on. I distressed the edges of the white panel using Ranger distress inks, Bundled Sage and Tumbled Glass. Then I hand drew in reeds and rocks and colored them with copic markers. Next I used Black Matte Embossing Paste to stencil 3 of the sea horses (LM 181), let them dry.
I used metallic F/X to add color and shine to the sea horses. The Metallic F/X I used were: Glacier, Goldfinch,and Kiwi. I really loved this layout when I was finished, so don't be afraid to use your stencils and paste on some of your layouts, just imagine what you could do with those beach themed stencils. Once again it's time to think out of the box.
I hope everyone has a blessed Christmas and don't forget to come back next week for more inspiration.
