Hello everyone! Stacy Cohen here today with a layout to share and a couple how-tos!

I added the round digital frames in Photoshop to focus on the jumping action in the photos.

I was in the mood to get a little bit messy and add some texture to my layout, so I created the background using a brick stencil, fiber paste (aka texture paste) and glitter. After adding the fiber paste to the stencil I immediately sprinkled on some glitter.

The effect is some texture with a whole lot of sparkle!

To add an extra personal touch to the layout, I made satin fabric flowers.  I cut flowers from poly satin fabric (varying sizes).  I then lit a candle and carefully singed the edges over the flame to make them curl up.  Once I had many shapes and sizes of curled petals I stacked them up according to size and put them together with Fabritac fabric glue.

Thanks for stopping by the SCT blog today! Be sure to share your comments below on how you use your stencils on your projects.
