K.I. Memories lace as a stencil

Hi everyone !

Waoh ! A week without blogging ? Where was I ? In France ! Yes ! It's summer and I back in the south of France, but not only for vacations.. I will stay the entire following year !
You should have see my family and me at the airport... 1 husband, 2 daughters, 1 dog and 8 luggages... We had to rent the biggest car we found because no one would have took us in a cab...
I found jungle in my yard, but it's so good to be home ! So few days here, and no time to scrap, but I have to show you a layout I made in Aberdeen.

I used the white lace cardstock by KI Memories in two ways : as a stencil with frayed burlap distress ink by Tim Holtz, outlined with a black fine pen (Copic), and few cut pieces as embellishments.

The background is a blue polka dot paper, and I add few strips of paper, covered with gesso, modeling paste and ink, using also an acrylic stamp (Prima Marketing), with some spray of coffee bean ink (Inkadinkado). Two I Am Roses flowers, few buttons (Recollections), and a home made embellishment with gold paint (Martha Stewart mold). Title cut with Cricut Expression in black cardstock.

That's one more for my Istanbul scrapbook. The picture was taken on the Burgazada island. The title say it all, I didn't feel like adding journaling.

See you soon for more French news...
