This page is the first I’ve made with a Lea France stencil. I used Card Trick stencil and lots of photos from our walk through the outskirts of historic downtown Melbourne last May. I laid it out on a white page, cut it down when finished, and mounted on black Stampin’ Up card stock.
I printed some free vintage images and used Cricut cartridge Art Deco for the title font. I haven’t been able to find any information on the Internet about this old train bridge so I can’t say what era it was really, but this font worked for the page anyway. It turned out to be a really cool way to do something with these photos of scenery and rusted metal.
I am so addicted to working with these stencils (I have 4 now), it’s like creating a puzzle and keeping track of what to do with the pieces. This is what I have always like doing, that why I sew and quilt, that’s why I enjoyed my job as a trouble shooter on the equipment way back when. So this is perfect, combine my love of taking photos (now I will purposely take multiple shots) with these stencils and I am a very happy camper!
Here is a page I did with a similar shot like the center photo last year, as a comparison to style and impact. Not that I will give up my old style of course. Variety is good. And some photos do not wish to play well with a crowd!
Knowing I was getting these stencils, I took lots of photos from Ft. Lauderdale and Hollywood recently. The should arrive from Shutterfly soon, can’t wait to play!
