Home-made stencil on the cheap

If you've read my article in the latest Australian Scrapbooking Memories magazine 
you will recognise the stencil I have used on this page.
It's hand-cut (using a craft knife) from a muesli bar box that I salvaged out of the recycling.
It is only simple but I love it. On this page I laid it down and stamped black paint on bubble wrap through it, after I had coloured the white cardstock with some mists of course :-)
The divine crochet was made by Becci Sundberg from Lime Tree Creations 
(she is making larger items these days, her work is superb quality!)
and I also added a square paper doily, foam alpha stickers covered with Tattered Angels Chandelier Glimmer Glam, Dymo journalling, and a few pearl brads from who knows where.

Thanks so much for dropping by
Yours in scrappiness :-)
