Stencils/ Die cuts

Stencils/Die Cuts or  Both is the new challenge at Try it on Tuesday this fortnight, so lots of choice there.

I've made a journal page using a torn napkin, that came in some happy mail from my friend and blog DT Yvonne.  I've used a home made trellis stencil and then a brick one to create the background.  Next came a script stencil and to fill in the bottom some stencilled leaves.  I stamped a 'vase' from a Paperbabe stamp set that I won from Tracey a short while ago, I fussy cut this for my die cut lavender.  There's nothing nicer than the smell of lavender in the garden on a summer's day, so of course I had to use this sentiment from a Jofy set.

The rest of the DT have some great inspiration for you, so please pop over to the main blog for all the details.

I am entering this at Paperbabe challenge - Anything Goes
And a first for me, I'm linking to Art Journey Journal where the theme this month  Flora and Fauna

Thanks for calling in,
Avril xx

What a beautiful display of one of my favourite flowers Avril. So inventive using the bottle stamp as a vase to display their beauty.
Would be lovely if you were to share your design over at Paperbabe stamps as our blog challenge theme is *Anything Goes* this fortnight. http://paperbabestamps.blogspot.co.uk/2018/04/paperbabe-stamps-challenge-72-anything.html
Wishing you lots of sunshine and creativity.

So nice your lavender card. So much details put together in harmony. I love the smell of lavender so much too. It is so calming and also refreshing. Just today I bought a lavender for our garden.

I am in awe of this amazing journal page. Both vintage and romantic, it takes me back to my childhood where lavender bushes surrounded my home. Not only do I love the beautiful colors and sweet sentiment, I love how your lovely page conjured up the sensory fun I had when I smelled lavender. It's a fantastic entry for Art Journal Journey, and I am thrilled you shared it with us.
