Clearsnap and a StencilGirl Hop

Here we are at Day 2 of the week long hop 
using StencilGirl stencils and Clearsnap products!

I chose a few colors of Smooch Pearlized Accent Inks 
and a Deep Grape color of ColorBox Spritzers Dye Ink Spray.

I spent an evening doing some marbling.
I had never done any marbling before 
so I read up on it online.
Anything you want to know is a keystroke away!
Isn't technology amazing?

I absolutely loved my results.
I had taken a variety of photo papers and watercolor papers
that came in a fine art sample pack from InkPress Digital Media
and quartered each sheet.

The smaller sheets of paper made it easier to handle in the marbling water.

Once everything was dry I savored each line and bump and texture!
So much fun to see all the varied results!
I wished I had ALL of the Smooch colors to play with!

And then to pick a stencil....

I am totally in love with the Rose Window Stencil by Lizzie Mayne.

I love the subtlety of the marbling underneath!
On some I used my Alcohol Ink Applicator and different Ink pads....
On others I actually colored in the different areas with markers

Isn't it exciting to see the texture?
Every one is different and unique!

I thought of ways I could use these little works of art....

Hmmmm...Let's cut them into business cards!

with my name, phone number and blog address for quite awhile now....


New business cards = my little works of art!

All righty then....
You all know the drill! 
This is a week long hop and there is a huge giveaway at the end of it...
Make sure you go to each blog on each day and leave a comment for more chances to win!

Here is today's line up...

Thanks to both the Clearsnap team and the StencilGirl team for some awesome projects!
What a great collaboration!

Happy Arting everyone!

Here I go..... doing some Speed Daily showing.....
In real life I am halfway through book 16...

So I am going to hurry through my Daily book 14.

Page by Page with just a few detail photos.... 

I love that above motif...
I have been using it since I came back from Italy in May 2011.

If these look familiar it is because I used them when I previewed

 And this might look familiar from the August StencilClub stencils
and THIS post on StencilGirl Talk.

Tomorrow I'll do another Speed View of more pages!
Happy Arting!

DLP Weeks 37 & 38

Week 37's DLP Challenge was to use a white pen prominently.

Week 38's Challenge was to include a feather. 

See my lettuce hanging out the bottom of the page?
This makes me laugh!
It's really the painted lace from a few weeks ago!

Happy Arting Friends!
