Have you seen the StencilGirl Alpha Drips and Number Drips stencils designed by Seth Apter? I recently got my hands on these thanks to the lovely StencilGirl for a guest post over on the StencilGirl Talk blog today and I thought that I would challenge myself to come up with 5 ways to use these two stencils to make a background.
Do you want to see the techniques I used? Well I have a video with the five ways I used these two stencils and I am also sharing how I put the whole page together too. But I am totally interested to know what techniques you would use? Have a watch of the video, have a think about it and then read on!
