SEEING RED – Stenciling a Grid & Video Tutorial

Hi there friends!  Today, I am sharing summer on a page!  Or at least, what lots of our summer Sundays look like.  I used 3 stencils, two 6×6 and a 12×12 version of one of the smaller ones.  I also made a process video you can find below!

The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project.  The opinions I share are solely my own.

I wanted to document the Instagram photos my husband took of his tomato salad prep, step-by-step.  I thought this organized grid shaped stencil would be perfect for what I had in mind.

I used my Silhouette to cut a frame out of a 12×12 piece of cardstock with 9 squares cut out of it.  Using a couple scrap pieces of the negative cardstock and green tinted molding paste, I stenciled a few leaves. SEEING RED_TCW_July 2016 (2)

I used a variety of Distress Ink, spray mists and molding pastes to create different patterns with that grid stencil, utilizing both the 12×12 and the smaller 6×6 in the same pattern. SEEING RED_TCW_July 2016 (3)

I added the molding paste leaves and a couple stamps I punched out to add interest and dimension.  I also added some alpha stickers into the center square for my title.

I thought the repeated shapes in the stencil went well with the elements in the salad and complimented the photos without taking away from the vibrant pictures. SEEING RED_TCW_July 2016 (5)

Here is the final layout.  I added stitching in both a straight stitch and zigzag pattern randomly around the page.  I added a couple geometric cork pieces, a date stamp and description to finish it off!
