Fun With Stencils & A Giveaway!

Remember this art journal page


Many people loved this woman, opening her arms with abandon to embrace the rain.    She's making a repeat appearance on this design I did for Scrapping the Music's newest challenge.  The song is Try Everyday by Transistor Rodeo, who approached Michelle Rydell and asked if STM would use his song!  How exciting to collaborate with a new artist.  The song has the lyric: "Nobody can stop the rain."  And I knew this woman would play a role in my response.


Now she has two other companions, all finding their own way in the rain.  All three are available on this new stencil I designed for Stencil Girl Products It's called ...


And who doesn't love fun borders?  How about 5 on one stencil! I used the checkerboard on my Scrapping the Music design.


Coming in December -  a stencil test drive/blog hop, with -- fasten your seatbelts --

Seth Apter, Jane Davies, Carolyn Dube, Kristin Dudish, Corinne Gilman, Nathalie Kalbach, Marjie Kemper, Michelle LaPoint, Maggie of The Fanciful Magpie, Natasha May, Ronda Palazzari,  Judy Shea, Revlie Schuit, Roben-Marie SmithChristy Tomlinson, and Diana Trout!  Details to come! (This logo is a work in progress -- comments welcome!)
Leave a comment on this post by Sunday night and I will send you one of my new stencils! And each time we do a stencil test drive, I will give away the stencil we're "driving."  Get extra chances to win by letting me know you follow my blog!

Thank you for visiting! If you are so moved, please leave a comment. Hearing from you means the world to me.

  1. I love, love, love your new stencils especially Embrace the Rain. It is so unique and unlike any other stencil I have yet to see. I will keep my fingers crossed and maybe I will win a stencil? We will see.

  3. Exciting! Happy to be a "tester". Love the excitment of the women in your stencil. Maybe you could make one for snow and they could be carrying shovels. HA!!! I wonder if they would be that excited. Sorry, morning humor, no coffee yet.

  4. I totally LOVE the stencil girls!!! The first journal page is just so beautiful and I love the dynamic and determined feel of the second piece "nobody can stop the rain". Five borders on one stencil is pretty cool too. You've got a great line up for the stencil hop-can't wait! Thanks for the chance to win!

  7. I do follow your blog and find a lot of inspiration! I really like both stencils; I can imagine uses for either one. Lately I am loving borders.
    So excited for you all to be asked to work with a new musical artist!

    1. Thanks Terri! The words are a stencil font that I printed out on transparency paper so that the background would come through: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?sku=839280&Q=&O=&is=REG&A=details. But you could use this stencil too: http://www.spraypaintstencils.com/alphabetstencils/stencil-font-alphabet-stencil.htm

    1. Thanks Marjie! I think I'll stick with that logo. The road is a scan of something I painted. Then I warped it and stretched it out in photoshop and printed on transparency paper. xo
