Balzer Designs Stencil Hop (frames)

Back in October I participated in a Stencil Hop celebrating the launch of Julie Balzer's new stencils with The Crafter’s Workshop. Back again using these fantastic designs, this time stretching my comfort zone a bit with a page using the Leaf Frame:

I started off using 3 different Mister Huey's and then added some watercolor, along with some American Crafts stickers and the map mixtape. The journaling was done pretty quickly, listing whatever highlights came to mind.

And for this layout (which happens to be my current favorite), I used the Flower Frame with the  Handmade Studio Calico kit, along with white Mister Huey's and this must-have white gel pen. To emphasize a few of the white spots a bit more, I added a touch of white watercolor. Side note: Still working on doing a post for our epic trip to Kauai. Though our recent Thanksgiving trip to Lima was wonderful, the journey home was very long, and feeling sick (and still feeling sick) made it all the more miserable.

On a happier note, check out what these other folks made, and enter for a chance to win a set of these fantastic stencils on Julie's blog.
