Stencil Girl Talk With a Cecilia Swatton Stencil

I'm on the Stencil Girl blog today demonstrating how I used "Trivet A Stencil" by Cecilia Swatton to create backgrounds for a series of tags.  Be sure to visit Stencil Girl Talk for a detailed description of my process and lots of step out photos!

I ended up with 8 tags I really love, which all started out with inspiration from Trivet A Stencil by Cecilia Swatton.

Here's a short video:

You can also watch Making Tags with Stencils on You Tube.  

 Leave a comment before Friday, 1/24 and I will pick someone by Random.org to receive this tag!

Thanks for stopping by!

UPDATE:  The winner is Nancy Eaton!  I've sent her an email and look forward to sending her this tag.
