I started out by taking apart one of the chipboard envelopes I get with my StencilClub and StencilGirl Products shipments. I cut it apart into pieces, lined them up, and used masking tape to bind them. If you're interested in trying this yourself, here are the measurements I used:
- 2 pieces: 5.5"w x 7.5"h
- 2 pieces: 3/8"w x 7.5"h
- 1 piece: 7/8"w x 7.5"h
Spider Web Stencil by June Pfaff Daley and some Payne's Gray paint to put on the top layer.
August 2014 exclusive StencilClub stencils and some yellowish orange paint to add the openings on top. Keeping that stencil in place, I layered the Spider Web stencil on top of that and stenciled it into some of the openings, making sure to only stencil inside the holes so it would look kind of like windows. Then I added more dimensional paints.
You can see that I used the Spider Web stencil a bit more throughout the inside pages.
Fairy Tale Tree Mask by Mary Beth Shaw worked really well as a kind of spooky tree background for this mini file folder insert.
Nature Notes stencil also seemed like a great fit in this context.
I hope you enjoyed today's post, and if you have any seasonal projects using these or other stencils, make sure to link them up!
