I'm on Stencil Girl Talk today showing some journal covers I made with the February Stencil Club stencils. There's a video there too -- hope you'll hop over and take a look! And there's a giveaway at the end of this blog post, so please read to the end!
Before we get started, I wanted to announce the winner of the Valentine's tag. It is Kay Wallace! Congrats Kay.
The tag is on its way to you!.
After taking Kecia's and Linda's fabulous stitching and sewing class at Art is You, resulting in these prayer flag style valances, I decided to teach myself to embroider. I found Mary Corbet's YouTube channel and started adding new embroidery stitches to my repertoire.
I have fallen in love with using my stencils to create custom-patterened fabric. It is so much fun to stencil on fabrics, and then use embroidery to embellish my designs.
You can see past posts about stenciling and stitching here.
This is the Horned Owl stencil from Stencil Girl Products, jazzed up with different embroidery stitches.
Here is the Shiva Stencil over the Cascading Leaves Stencil with seed stitches, french knots and other embroidery stitches.
I even put the scraps to good use, as leaves on a tree...
with elements from Traci Bautista's Tropical Floral stencil...Or petals on a flower.
Using words from Carolyn Dube's Uplifting Words, and my Tea (love), Doors (adventure) and Judy's Trees (Grow) stencils.
Here's what happens to these panels when I finish them!
GIVEAWAY: I also made mug mats with a bunch of the scraps. Want one? Leave me a comment with your email address. I will pick someone by 9AM Friday morning!
And please hop over to Stencil Girl Talk for a step by step for how to create journals with fabric covers, and a video for fabric printing with stencils!
