Stencil in Some Time with the Birch Trees!





Tuesday Greetings, Bloggers!

Now that Aspen Lite has shipped, it's time to show off at least some of its contents in action!

Nest your photo inside the beautiful Birch Trees created with the Lite Aspen Birch Tree Stencil.  Here is how I did it . . .


1. Stencil onto White for cutting out and also onto an 8.5x11 Aqua page base. Clean and flip the stencil over to mirror the birch tree image.

2. Trim out White stenciled trees. Use foam applicator to apply black ink onto cut edges to add depth and cover any cutting imperfections.



3. Attach White birch trees over stenciled birch trees on Aqua. Use foam squares for attaching some and regular adhesive for others to create varied depth. I added a 2" punched out yellow sun and matted photo prior to layering the White trees.



4. Use border strips attached with foam squares to finish off top and bottom edges of the birch limbs.



It's a fun 8.5x11 page to have in my scrapbook with that Aspen flair! I'm also looking forward to using this stencil on a canvas--I'm sure it'll be great! But for now it's just fun to keep looking at this page. Hahaa!



Enjoy your Aspen Lite Kit!

Thank you for stopping by,
Kay at Club Scrap

  5. The Henna Kit has those wonderful colors that seem to go with everything--travel, seasons and those old 1980-90's photos.

  6. Reminds me of my favorite tree we had years ago. Lost our beautiful birch tree to an ice storm one winter. It was one of the most beautiful trees we ever had in our yard. Thanks for those ideas and memories Kay.
