hello - Artastic March challenge

 Hey there, love the challenge over at Artastic this month!  The inspiration is the picture below and the criteria is Stencils ☺  How fun! 

I'm playing along with another holiday snap.  I thought this picture worked very well with the 'arty' theme of the challenge.

I've picked out a few stencils in my stash and used them in different ways on my page - some with paint, some with pen and even a bit of thread.

 With texture paste, I've used a diamond stencil and then added paint once dry. 
 Here is some more texture paint and also some pen work - the words are done using an alphabet stencil.
Using a faux stitching stencil, I've pierced the holes, then added the stitching with blue thread. 

All the different stencils gives a very mixed media feel the page and it was fun to create!
Til next time ♥
