Hero Arts Color Layering Butterflies Frame Cuts


Stenciling is this month’s challenge.  I made my own stencil here.


The second page to my notebook (still not sure what I’m calling it) has a patterned base and two pockets.  On top of the top layer, I stamped different words and phrases over a homemade stenciled background, while on the base I used a couple of the images in my home made stencil   If you don’t have a stencil you want to use, you can make one to your liking by using your dies.   The first image is my page without the tabbed notes inserted in the pockets.  The top pocket is on tape.


I added my tabbed notccards into the pockets so I know what I’ve worked on and ideas for the future.
