Just a quick reminder that all the AZZA decoration stencils are on sale until Sunday.
Decoration stencils are beautiful on the page and quick to do.
Often I hear Ladies say ‘I am not artistic’ – but with the decoration stencils you already have the shape, all you need to do is bring it to life with chalks, inks and pens. The Ladies who attended the Masterclasses last year with Christine Houbrechts will have seen how to do this – Christine made it look so easy!!
Christine used the Frosty Lake decoration stencil to create the Christmas tree above. She used AZZA brushes and inks in a few different shades of green and brown and finished it off with her pens. Note the strip of glitter tape below and the inked edges of the card.
Christine then added a second decoration from the same decoration stencil.
An example of the Snowman on the same decoration stencil:
This time Christine has used a single colour in different tones and brought it to life with pens. Note how he has been grounded on two strips of paper, the top decorated in the same way as the rest of the paper cut outs on the page.
I used the decoration stencil above on one of my pages in my Loire album:
I inked the image with my Pom poms and then completed the decoration with pens. I used three colours in pens, the darker brown, copper and white. I used pom poms as I did not want a strong outline.
The Loire decoration stencil is great as it has both a decoration side and a texture side. If you travel overseas and love the historic sites, this one is for you.
This is one of my favourite pages in the album. I have used the decoration stencil on both paper and the page itself. I have also used an image inked onto a circle cut from AZZA cork.
Tropical decoration duo stencil is rather lovely as it has so many different images. I have used the pineapples on my page below. The row of pineapples are lovely as they can be used on a strip of paper or below/above a photo to fill a gap. AZZA always brings out a theme across the products, so I have teamed the decoration stencil with the figurines for a decoration inside the AZZA frame.
A beautiful bookmark and card made with the decoration stencil above.
This has to be one of my favourite: Lucky Charms
Again, the decoration stencil has been teamed up with a figurine and a stamped image
Audrey brings feathers to life with pens and a little glitter.
The Universe decoration stencil is a good one to get as it can be used with any theme on the page. Christine has used her Pom poms with ink to incorporate this decoration into the page. She has complete the decorations with pens.
Another decoration stencil that can be used in so many different ways and with any theme: Ethnic Motifs.
Although this is a Christmas stencil – I love the music on it. Here I have used it on an Accordion sheet on a page – very quick! I inked a background for it to sit upon with inks and a sponge then inked the decoration stencil with an AZZA dauber and made sure it was dark in some places and lighter in others to give it a little character.
Don’t just scroll past the circles, squares and ovals. These can be used on any page and can set a beautiful background for other decorations.
If you don’t want just circles, this one is a good option with circles, ovals and decorations.
You can have fun with the Art and Craft decoration duo.
Different Azza product create different effects on the page. Try the image with your brushes, daubers, sponge or pom poms. The pom poms are beautiful for creating a shadow effect on images created with decoration stencils. Always finish them off with a few details using your pens/writers.
I will end with Easter. Firstly, a beautiful layout by Mimouscrap in Europe. She has used the new AZZA Zurich stencil and created a multi-page layout.
These Easter products have been used on a set of pages by Hilary Hamilton, Victoria. Her beautiful set of pages have been created with the AZZA Verlaine Stencil and pre-cut pages.
If you feel you have missed out on Easter this year, get out your photos from last year and scrap them!
Happy decorating ……. if you would like to learn more about using your decoration stencils with the AZZA sponges, pom poms, brushes and daubers please contact your Consultant. Some Consultants are available online as there are no classes running at the moment.
Stay safe and continue scrapping it will keep you sane!
