Compendium of Curiosities 3 challenge #4 - Texture Paste /Subway Stencil

Hi everybody
A big shout out to the CC3 challenge crew. Thank-you all so very much for the kind comments and votes for the crew's choice. The gazebo is sitting on the counter at Urban Scrapbook for customers to enjoy.

It will be a challenge to top myself on that one,I think. On to the next  challenge - texture paste with stencils. To be honest, I don't use a lot of texture paste. I still have Dreamweavers paste from years ago. Black, white, translucent, glass beads, lightweight... ( I said I don't use it, but I didn't say I don't own any LOL)

I have this great subway stencil from Ronda Palazzari  for TCW that I wanted to use.
When we were in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia this past February, the sweet man and I took the train around the city A LOT. it's fast and cheap and easy to navigate but, with any big city, there are always funny little signs you notice here and there. I figured it to be common sense not to urinate against a wall in the train station, but apparently the need to "remind" people is necessary. 

Now remember, I also work in an inner city Emergency department, and the sweet man is a Paramedic,  so we found this signage to be quite hilarious.

Here's the link to check out  super creative and talented submissions for this challenge

Stencils: Subway and Arrows(TH)
Distress colors: faded jeans, festive berries, frayed burlap, antique linen
Dies: memory box, Silhouette cut file

I was playing with different papers and had some leftover watercolor paper so I did the same thing only a little smaller, the finished card is 5x7

One more scooter cut file and texture paste through both the subway and arrow stencils this time.

Hope you enjoyed my quirky little story. It's always the little things that seem to stick in your memory the longest.

I should also mention that the even numbered challenges are sponsored by the Funkie Junkie Boutique. Check it out, it's a cool online store.
Thanks for stopping by today see you next time.

  1. Very cool, Laurie. Yes, you've set a high bar. But that's okay, just go with your creative flow. This one works on many levels, love the them and how your stencil work sets the tone. Well done!
