Grunge Borders by Darkroom Door~ Art Journal pages

Hi guys!
I have three projects to share using the Grunge Borders stencil by
Darkroom Door.  Love this stencil so much!!!! Adds great texture
and interest to any project.
Art Journal page #1~
The background is created using acrylic paint, vintage text paper and the
Grunge Borders stencil.  Random areas are highlighted with a white gel pen.
  The Patchwork Butterfly / Collage stamp by Darkroom Door is
colored or not colored with the "crayon resist technique". This is the
You Tube video I watched.  So good and easy!!! Rachel did this video

ten years ago!!

Art Journal page #2

The background is created using Distress Oxide inks.  Layer the colors,
one at a time, dry after each color and then introduce the next color.
Add the Grunge Borders stencil and the Large Script stencil and
highlight with a white gel pen. The Birdhouse and Birds are stamped
on mixed media paper, dipped in Distress Oxide ink and then trimmed out.
Images were added with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L's foam squares.
Lots of Labels, Fine Leaves and Everyday Life were also used on this
Art Journal page.
Project #3 ~ card 
The background for the card is created with Distress Oxide inks and the
Grunge Borders stencil.  The card front was cut in half and the adhered
to the card base and then to a folded card.  The Take Flight Stamps was
used to complete the card.

Thanks for stopping by~
