Stencil I - Keys to Understanding!

Stencil 1 is the Altered Pages partner for the month of April...
I love my  large Key Repeat Wallpaper Stencil!!!

This month I have been inspired by others to create Pocket Letters!
Using papers from the Mailbox Muse Kit Art on the Orient Express, cut 9 cards 3 1/2, for the base of my page!

Tape a couple of cards on a hard surface, washi tape works well.  Through the large Key Repeat Wallpaper Stencil ink a few keys on cards in strategic places with Versamark

Heat emboss with black embossing powder.
Layout cards as they will appear in the Pocket Page

 Then embellish...
Ink and heat emboss  Leaky Shed Gears,
adhere with double stick tape!

Add Edges Bazzill banners, ribbon and rhinestones.

Print quote on computer, spritz paper with spray mists.  Cut lines of text, ink edges, adhere to cards.
Please be a traveler, not a tourist.
Try new things, meet new people.
and look beyond what is right in front of you
Those are the keys to understanding
this amazing world we live in.
- Andrew Zimmern

When finished place cards in the pockets. 
Add little gifts and letter to page for your pocket pal!
