Image may contain: text

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.

9 more prompts for this journal collaboration and I will be sad to see it end!!!

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

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.
