You all know by now, how much I LOVE Spellbinders products, right?! Uh huh. So it's no surprise that I use their products in one of my first layouts completed on my return home.
As I've been using texture paste and stencils alot in my projects over the last few months I decided I wanted to give it a go using a Spellbinders die cut as my stencil. So I chose a design that I loved and cut a few dies out....
I put the smaller piece inside the larger piece, then started applying texture paste over them onto my page....
I cut some more of the same dies out, and placed them on the page in the areas I wanted...
I had also cut out some patterns from the paper range I was using (Prima Delight) and added them into the equation.
From here I decided that the larger die cut frames needed 'filling in' so added in a background to them.
The photo was cut using the same die, the smaller nested version. I think it makes it fit so well into the page. Love how you get so many different dies that can be used seperately or together. Sigh. No wonder I love Spellbinders! Grin.
Here's a look at some close ups:
You can also see how I've used the main frame (that I used for the initial texture pasting stencil) as the main frame in the middle of the page that holds the photo. No wastage here! And it looks great!
Hope this has inspired you to look at your dies in a 'outside the box' kinda way.
