Here's another layout that I've created as the guest designer of Layers Of Color this month. I've used products from Swirlydoos, July kit with some stamps and stencils of LOC to create this layout.

Here are some of the details.
I've used the "Delicious Dots" stencil to create the pattern on the cardstock and stamped on top of the title using a stamp from the "Old World Flourish" stamp set by LOC.
 The bird is stamp using the "Backyard Birds" stamp set by LOC.
I've used various flourishes stamps from the "Old World Flourish" stamp set to stamp around the flowers.

 To create the flowers, I've used the "Flowering Gems" stamp set by LOC.
Lastly, I've used the "Belle Brocade" stencil to create the design around the photograph.

Hope you all are inspired to used some stencils after looking at this layout.  Try creating some interesting backgrounds or create your own pattern papers using them with some fun mediums! Happy experimenting!
