Maintaining a minimal stash and stencils just aren’t on the list? Use stenciling techniques to create your own patterned paper, with supplies you probably already have on hand.
ONE • I punched out several butterfly shapes using a favorite punch. TWO • I placed the shapes on top of white paper and painted over them with watercolor. The places where they had been left a white area. The paint ran under it in some places, but I like the dreamy, imperfect quality. THREE • Repeat this several times with different colors that match your photo. FOUR • The best part was that I was able to use the painted butterflies as embellishments on the page, too.
