#TheStencilfiedJournal - Prompt 10

Image may contain: text

Prompt 10, using only StencilGirl® stencils, was tough and I followed the prompt LOOSELY.

I started my one page spread with some Dina Wakley paint- sky and marine. 

With S045 Mandala #4 and a baby wipe I removed the paint where the stencil was.

I used L261 Vintage Typewriter Alphabet and black paint to stencil for the morning and the night.

A little doodling and drawing with Posca Paint pens.

See you next week for Prompt #11...any guesses as to what it will be??

Prompt 9 was so much fun!!!

Of course using only StencilGirl® stencils...  I swapped journals with my friend and our hostess for this collaboration, Tina Walker.  You are going to love this spread!!

She chose red for her one color and used a stencil from the StencilClub, July of this year.

Perfect quote too!!!

If you want to see the page I did in Tina's journal head over to her blog.

The Plain Box Society

I have been participating in lots of really fun collaborations this past year!  Today I am sharing another one StencilGirl® columnist Tina Walker pulled together.
For The Plain Box Society we all got the same plain box and were challenged to decorate it however we wanted, the only rule was any stencil used had to be StencilGirl®.  Easy peasy right?!!
This is what our box started out looking like.

No automatic alt text available.

I actually took my box apart so I could lay it flat to work on it.  

I started with the Layers of Scallops stencil (S575) and filled in with the ATC Mix Up stencil (L543).

I did all my stecniling with Dina Wakley paints; Peacock, Olive, Sedona and Cheddar.

Then all the doodling with Posca Paint Pens.

I accidentally smudged the paint pen while I was doodling and found that I liked the grunginess of it so I made sure to keep smudging while I continued to doodle.

I used the Tim Holtz foam alpha stamps to add some words areound the bottom of the box, stamped in archival ink.

I am really looking forward to giving a gift in this box, I will just have to wait for the perfect one to fit!

Please be sure to visit the StencilGirl® blog for more info on the collaboration and some other really great boxes by so many talented artists!!

Until next time...

#TheStencilfiedJournal - Prompt 8

Image may contain: text

If you have been following along for the last 7 weeks we are now on prompt 8 and in week 8 of #TheStencilfiedJournal, our collaboration using only StencilGirl®, the challenge looks like it would be easy but in fact it was a little tricky...

Kids, don't try this unsupervised!!!  I had my stencil stuck to places a stencil should never be stuck to.

I used S527Cross Sticth Plus Times with Tim Holtz Collage Medium.  I acted as a resist so when it was dry I used Distress Ink over the background.

I also used S151 Half Moon Slant and L543 ATC Mix Up 1 for another layer on my page.

The stamped image is one designed by Ms Tina Walker for Viva Las VegaSatmps!  Then of course doodling and writing with Posca Paint pens.

Make sure to come back soon,,,the next prompts are getting VERY interesting!!!

See you SOON!

#TheStencilfiedJournal - Prompt 7

Image may contain: text

Week 7 and boy was this one a challenge for me!!

Just one rule... using only StencilGirl® stencils!

So I started by woring on a single page in my journal.  And even knowiing it was going to be ripped out and ripped up I still got a little attached to it.

I used Tide Pool S345 for my background, stenciled in Distress Crayon-festive berry.
The some doodling and drawing with Posca Paint Pens.

I used the same stencil on this background, Tide Pool S345 but Dina Wakley paint in sky.  I tore up my other page and glued it in the shape of a heart.

I wrote my saying around the heart and then drew a border.

My torn up page made some great pattern and texture in my heart...

Thanks for looking!  See you next week.

#TheStencilfiedJournal Prompt 4

Image may contain: text
Here we are!  In our 4th week with our 4th prompt!!!

If you have been folowing along and have to get your hands on some of the super fun stencils you have seen, pop over to StencilGirl® .

So I always thought my least favorite color would be purple but when I looked at all my purple paint I couldn't find it in me to dislike any of them.  I did however pick a different color that I never use when I paint or stencil, lime green.

Here is what I did with some Dina Wakley paint in lime green.

While it isn't a color I reach for often I ended up really liking how this spread turned out...go figure!

I used the Scribble Blooms stencil for my background.

Then I wrote down some of my favorite things. I was imediately reminded of flowers in a garden so that is where I went using one of the new stamps designed by Tina walker for Viva Las VegaStamps!, Ethos Seeing Double.  Then of course lots of doodling with my Posca Paint Pens.

Stay tuned...same time next week for prompt 5!!

#Thestencilfiedjournal - Prompt 3

Image may contain: text

We are in our third week, #thestencilfiedjournal prompt 3.  I had fun with this one!

I found a leaf outside and flattened it in a book for a couple of days then but a thin coat of clear gesso on both side to seal it.

Here is what I ended up with.

StencilGirl Stencils used:  Fade Horizontal, Layers of Scallops, Scribble Blooms.
I stenciled with Posca Paint pens, Dina Wakley paint (lemon) and Distress Ink (Vintage Photo)

The leaf is outlined with a Graphite Sticks from Prima that I smeared all around with my finger first then a waterpen and then a baby wipe.

#TheStencilfiedJournal - Prompt 2

Image may contain: text

Thanks for coming back for prompt TWO in our art hournal collaboration.
So if you remember from last week there was only one rule!  We just had to use Stencil Girl stencils on all of our pages.

Let's jump right in!

YES, stencil a page and RIP it out... I was slightly intimidated by that part but it is just paper right??!!

I stenciled with S301 Makes Marks Marks (Mary Beth Shaw) and S290 Deconstructed Zinnia Stencil and Mask (Traci Bautista)   

Some painting wit Dina Wakley Medis paints; Marine, Cheddar, Olive and Lemon.  Doodling with Posca Paint Pens.

Now the hard part, mentally not physcially!!

I ripped that page right out!!!

Then tied it to a tree in my front yard!  I used a scrap of Sari ribbon.

I hope you will stop back next week for Prompt THREE!!
