1 stencil, 10 ways


It's no secret that I love my stencils. Sure you can use almost anything as a mask but these are designed to be used over and over again. So they are a great investment, especially when your LSS has them marked down...*High fives all around* Today I want to share with you the versatility of just 1 stencil...my fave chevron stencil by Crafter's Workshop Balzer Designs - 1 stencil, 10 ways. :)

1. Create your own patterned background with several colours of mist. Then run it through the Cameo for the negative text effect.

2. Use it with Golden fiber paste for a bold background on a tiny canvas [4x4].

3. Use it with Golden fiber paste for a subtle background on a canvas.

It's-crazy-time!

4. Mist with another stencil, then use overlay it with some Golden fiber paste.

5. Use  it for a fun background on journal pages.

6. Use the chevrons like arrows to guide the eye to the photo.

7. Use the chevrons like arrows to guide the eye to the title of the layout.

8. Create a neutral background and incorporating the residual mist left on the template too.

Whatcha doing

9.  Use it to create a subtle mat for your photos.

10. Vary the intensity of the colour to create more interest.

There you have it. 1 stencil, 10 ways. What do you think?
