StencilGirl Guest Designer

Hello Beautiful People

I am so excited to finally be able to share with you, that I was asked to be a guest designer for StencilGirl Products. I have been using StencilGirl Products stencils for a long time, and to say that I am over the moon about being asked to be a Guest Designer, is an understatement.

I decided to do 2 projects because the possibilities with these Stencils are just I had to stop at 2 or I wouldn't have been able to submit my work for this blog post lol.

For my first project I did a journal page. I really love for my journal pages to be inspiring. I want someone else to be able to look at a journal page I have done and be moved by it, or take something from it and be able to relate to it. More than anything I want you to be confident in making journal pages of your own.

I used the Wall of Words Stencil for this piece, along with the Deconstructed Floral Bouquet Stencil and the Love Collage Stencil by Traci Bautista.

First I stenciled the flowers randomly on the page. Then I grabbed the Wall Of Words Stencil and used the entire stencil. 
I did some doodling at the upper left on along the side of the lower right. 
After that I used a black permanent gel pen and outlined some of my favorite words and quotes from the stencil. I really love how this turned out and I am seriously thinking of having it printed to Canvas.

Here are some other shots of the page. 

 Ok for my second project, I made a mini quotes album. I had this super cool little flip tag that came with a Harley Davidson Leather Jacket I purchased and it turned out to be the perfect vehicle for a mini album. I love recylcing things into my art.

I used all of the stencils again. The Wall of Words Stencil, the Deconstructed Floral Bouquet Stencil and the Love Collage Stencil by Traci Bautista.

Here is a shot of the completed album
The first thing I did was take the album out of the elastic piece that was holding it together. I gesso'd both sides of the pages. I really loved that I could still see some of the words through the gesso.

The next thing I did was create different backgrounds. I used as many different colors as I could grab.

I applied the paint with my fingers, moving it around and blending the paints together.

Next I grabbed the Deconstructed Floral Bouquet Stencil and the Love Collage Stencil by Traci Bautista and started adding the next layer.

 I used white paint for highlited areas.

Here I have started doodling. I used a white signo gel pen and also a black pen. I just traced the outlines of the stencils and added some different shapes and lines.

Here in this shot you can see gold...I just use a gold writer...shake it up and push the tip down on my craft mat until a puddle of the liquid gold comes out..then I fling it all over everything. 

So now I add my words from the Wall of Words Stencil. I put different words together to make different quotes and sayings and also used some of the ones that were already on the stencil.

Then its time to put the book together.

I hope you are inspired to go make some beautiful art using StencilGirl Stencils. Go make a journal page or a mini album or anything really. Just have fun.
