I lay the template over the corner of the photo and used green acrylic paint and a sponge brush to dab carefully through the designs that I wanted to use, in this case the tropical leaf shapes. You have to be very careful when doing this to avoid smudging paint through the other shapes on the template! The acrylic paint wipes easily off the plastic template once you have finished. After it had dried, I used a white pen to draw around the outside of the shapes to give them definition, and also added some background swirls in brown ink. I cut some small circles from another sheet of the Daily Grind paper, and mounted these on foam pads in between the stencilled leaves. A few buttons added a final touch of detail.
I'm sure to use this template again - the diversity of the designs on just one template will ensure there is something for a range of different layouts. Make sure you check out the shop for the other templates available in the range.
