Off the Rails - Masks & Stencils Challenge

I was VERY happy when I found out the latest challenge at Off the Rails, as there isn't a layout of mine that doesn't use a mask or stencil at the moment. (No masks or THAT would be a challenge!) I tend to use a lot of these to add depth and texture to my layout backgrounds.

Here is what I created for this challenge...

Although it may not be obvious, I assure you there were plenty of stencils used in the making of this layout! I used a variety of mediums with my stencils - gesso, texture paste and Gelatos.

Here are some close ups...

{Large flower from Manor House Creations, flair button from Flutterby Designs}

{Gorgeous butterfly pin from A little bit fANTsy}

{Printed paper flower from Prima, clay button from Charms Creations}

{Here you can see the stencilled houndstooth texture; plus some shimmer, shine & more flowers...yum!}

I do hope you will join in with the challenge at Off the Rails. There is a fabulous prize up for grabs from DARKROOM DOOR (who have amaaaazing stamps!)

Thanks for taking the time to stop by and for those who leave me comments. I really do appreciate it, and love to read them! Don't forget to leave me a comment if you have time, so I know to visit your blog and return the love! X
