Scrapbooking on the Wall with The Crafters Workshop

When I attended the Trade Show in Boston recently I was lucky enough to take a class from Jaime Echt, owner of The Crafters Workshop.  We had fun playing with lots of stencils and their new dies but  I didn't finish my project there because I was unhappy with the color choices the lady at my table made for us.  Soooo, I took my display board home along with some pre-sprayed pieces from Jaime and played more with my collection of TCW stencils until I came up with this final piece inspired by the class.

Jaime had pre-sprayed some mixed media paper with various colors of Radiant Rain and assorted TCW stencils.  I cut a few of these pieces with the new dies.

The first panel has the "happy" die cut from Vertical Happy Bunting and the background I sprayed Ginger Flower Radiant Rain through the  Circle Regiment stencil.  I also added some Viva Bronze Modeling Creme by Splash of Colour through the Aztec stencil directly onto the photo.

This panel has a background sprayed through the Aztec stencil and then in the bottom I stenciled part of Lifes Months with Graphite Ferro Special Effects Paste onto a sprayed panel.

This panel was die cut using Vertical Happy Bunting and then cut apart.  The bunting I glued to the top of the display panel.  (I used Zip Dry from Beacon for the whole project)

One of the other panels uses the frame from the Horizontal Chevron die, and then I used the negative pieces to decorate the inside of this panel.
