EZ to spray a color in the background, rather than just use paper. At Scrapfest Tim Holtz suggested cutting the border of the stencil off, so you don't have a line--if that makes sense. It works beautifully and looks creative!
Very much enjoy doing vintage art journaling and making cards.
There is so many different directions I can take the "clockwork" design...one can cover any aspect of "making the journey" from a time angle....or one can use a gazillion quotes and examples from scripture....in other words its all about time and how we spend each moment we explore the planet!!
Here's another stencil that I am using a lot. It's fun to use with paint or with paste. Clocks and gears are very "in" right now so hurry and get this one for your collection - you'll find you are using it many times. Just remember to clean it after each use.
