I have 3 projects, two videos and a giveaway to share with you!
This stencil was inspired by my daughter Samy -- a joyous exuberant being.
I have been playing a lot with this versatile stencil. I love the images of the girls, as well as the exclamation points (which make a great border), and the words. I used all of the elements of the stencil to make this page for Samy, to commemorate the end of 6th Grade:
The images on this stencil are so girl-positive. I made two canvases, using two of the three figures:
I covered both canvases with vintage sheet music and old encyclopedia pages. I used a gelli plate tape transfer technique to make this girl:
I heat embossed two hearts to use as embellishments. Remember them from this post?
You might also recognize the Dots and Dashes stencil, and one of the windows from the Windows & Doors stencil,
and even some leaves from my Cascading Leaves stencil! Stencils are definitely my go-to supply for creating texture and interest.
Remember that your stencils can be used in their entirety, or you can use elements of them. You are the boss of your stencils!
