Bonus tip: When you're using washi tapes and you don't want it to stick too much, don't press down the tape too hard on the paper so that you can take it off easier and it doesn't rip the paper.


Step 2

Next, I'll place my masking paper on two-thirds of my page. This way, we'll be using one-thirds of the paper for our Halloween scrapbook background.

Step 3

Now, we're going to start layering my graveyard stencil design from the back of the layout to the front by using brighter colors at the back and darker colors at the front.

As you can see, I've done multiple layers of it and the design came out absolutely fantastic!

Carefully tear away the masked paper until we are left with a background that we can now start to put together for a layout.

For my finishing touches, I've added a "Halloween" title using some stickers and created some lovely spiderweb in the corner with black dots in the middle using acrylic ink.
