Adventure Scrapped!

What a great way to preserve those fabulous (and not so fabulous, but funny in hind sight) travel memories! Megan hits this one out of the park!

This year is the 50th anniversary of the FORD Mustang.  My husband happens to be FORD crazy! and so we apparently just had to head to America to be part of the celebrations.  How better to document that trip by using Misc Me! and Souvenir was just perfect to get me started.  I've used the stencils throughout in a few different ways.

The beginning of our trip started in San Francisco and we stayed at really delightful motel, it really was a gorgeous spot to relax after a day spent seeing all the sights.

Here I wanted to blend my stencil colours to match my motel sign - this time I used blue and brown inks with a blending tool.  Ive also altered my Noteworthy by covering the original sign from saying cafe to Our Adventure by popping a sticker on top and mounting the motel sign behind the film strip.

On this page I wanted a subtle effect from using my stencils so I randomly used white texture paste in my background.

For the two 3x4 cards I've used Pearlescents Sugar to cover my stencil design, again giving me a subtle background, before layering with wash and chipboard embellishments.

My final page is part of the next section about Alcatraz.  Because the photo has a heritage feel to it I wanted the background paper to reflect that too, so I've used texture paste with two different stencils before painting over it with two Pearlescents and then randomly stamping.

I hope this has given you some ideas for creating backgrounds using stencils.  We do love seeing what you do with Misc Me so please keep sharing :)
