Beautiful Minds Inspiration Collaboration

 I am excited to share another StencilGirl Products Collaboration I participated in.  Of course StencilGirl Columnist Tina Walker was the brains behind the collaboration.  You can find the main post, A Beautiful Mind Inspiration Collaboration.  From this post you will be able to view all of the other artists creations in this collaboration.

We were challenged to create a project inspired by one of your favorite makers.  They could be someone who inspires you with their design esthetic, their mixed media supplies, their tools or just their overall person. Only one rule for this project...use StencilGirl Products Stencils.

The maker I selected is my dear friend Tina Walker. Even before we were friends I was always inspired and drawn to her work. Now I am especially inspired not only by her work but by all the the various products she designs.

I created a project inspired by her journaling style and products. It is a wall hanging made from tags with gelli plate prints with Tina's stencil designs for StencilGirl Products and alcohol ink.


Stencils used:
S822 Cathedral FloorS814 Icelandic ChurchSC 10-2020 Walker, L261 Vintage Typewriter Alphabet StencilSC 4-2020 Dube

Layers, collaging, doodling and drawing are all some of the different techniques used here.


These layers are a tag with stenciling, an upcycled tea bag, vintage lace, book page and one of the custom washi designs Tina has available.



Doodling and collaging. The image is from a vintage Ladies Home Journal, 1910 I believe and the doodling is with Posca Paint Pens.


A little freehand drawings of some flowers with a Stabilo All pencil then painted with Dina Wakley paint.


And of course there had to be a quite to bring it all together!!
