Stencils On Layouts

Using stencils on scrapbook layouts. @SandraDietrich for @Altenew.

Use stencils on scrapbook layouts with the Reflection Scrapbook Collection for shiny effects.

Welcome to a new layout inspiration with stencils designed for you by Altenew. It's me, Sandra, and I would like to share a new scrapbook layout inspiration with you today. In May 2017, I went on a trip with my sister and two mutual friends. We stayed on the beautiful island Hiddensee in the Baltic Sea here in Germany. And on one of the days, I stepped outside the house we had rented and I just realized how beautiful Spring can be. All the green and nature saying ‘Hi, let's party.' Therefore, I took out my camera and just captured a snapshot of the beautiful nature surrounding us. And I would like to share this moment with you. The moment when you smell Spring and see the sunlight coming through the trees. And when you just feel happy and grateful for the beauty of life.

The details of the layout

When nature transforms to green and more sunlight during Spring time, butterflies, flowers and fresh air bring joy to our lifes. Thus, the butterfly on the layout reminds me of the specials moments I had on our short trip. I used my sewing machine to attach the butterfly to the layout.

Using stencils and paste

I wanted to add a mixed-media effect for the background of the layout. Therefore, I used a stencil from Altenew and also a colored paste for the background. This adds a nice shiny effect to the layout. In addition, when you touch the layout, there is a sublime feel on the tips of your fingers.

Finally, I'm hoping you like my scrapbook layout inspiration using a stencil from Altenew. And I would like it when you tried yourself to use stencils on your next scrapbook page.

Have a wonderful day!
Your's Sandra
