A to Z StencilGirl® Art Journal Collaboration and Challenge

The work for this latest challenge by Tina Walker for StencilGirl® was quite a while in the making.  We were challenged to create a journal with a theme but you had to use all letters A to Z.  Wow, right??  I choose a theme that, for the most part, gave me no trouble for each letter.  I chose 'Things That Make Me Happy'.

My journal was created from a large stack of envelopes I happened to have lying around...they were PERFECT!  I bound them all together and used a pamphlet stitch with some Sari ribbon I sprayed.

Each page is has a background colored with Dina Wakley gloss sprays and then stenciled with StencilGirl® stencils and more of the gloss sprays.  The letters of the alphabet are traced through a stencil with Posca paint pens and all doodling and writing is also done with Posca's.

I used SO MANY StencilGirl® stencils (click on each one to see the stencil):  L261, S445, S151, S695, S527, S532, S550, S232, L266, L301, L433, S135S181, S696, S575.  Of course many of my StencilClub stencils were used too, 11 to be exact!!

These are a few of my favorite pages!!  Each letter has a thing that makes me happy AND a little quote about that thing...

Below is a quick video flip through.
