Pocket Page Scrapping - Lizzy Hill - plus mini Tutorial on reverse stenciling

Hi there! Today I thought I'd switch things around.

Basically this is an altruistic post. I recently received my Dusty Attic box of 
AMAZING goodies. Including their new STENCILS & TEXTURE PASTE.

journal over. I figured using vellum on top would work:
These precision pens work really well for writing on vellum. I used a Pitt Artists big pen on all the Dusty Attic chippy that I used, including this
'remember' from the 
I sewed the vellum on, through the chippy. Here's the journaling card finished:
I used the other 'reverse' stencil patterns for backing my photo cards.
Here's a closie:
Blessed [ WORD PACK #21] indeed to live close by my son and Grand Boys!
Another card I utilised below middle, has an arrow printed on it; I simply added
some more from the 
Loving the CONFETTI stencil beneath it!
Top left is the LOVELY CIRCUIT stencil. I added
some black outline for detail.
Above on my Mum's photo I've used a round 'be happy' sentiment from the 
So, there you have it. Lots of fun using the NEW and VERY reasonably priced
Dusty Attic STENCILS and TEXTURE PASTE in some fun ways!
Thanks so much for reading this ~ I hope it gives you some ideas & inspiration.
