StencilGirl Meets Earth Day

Hello Stencil Lovers!
Happy Earth Day to you all!

I was so happy to be able to use these Earth Safe Finishes 
and their line of Iridescents Paints by Ann Butler.
Seriously.... Love!

I have been layering the cover of  my Binder with doodles and paint swipes
for awhile now... and finally decided to use these paints on it.
That Lagoon color is heavenly!

I love the two sizes of the damask stencil 

And look at that creamy shine!
I still may add words or a title....but I love it so far.

I also tried some layering on some other unfinished covers....

I love the Lagoon and the Limelight together!

I layered some on pretty thick.

I love the looks of these two future art journals.

And just because I had time to play...I was wondering how 
it would look to heavily weegie the paints
 through some stencils with my scraping tool.
The creamy shine these paints give is beautiful.

Here is a list of the stencils used throughout my projects....

And of course there is a giveaway for this Earth Day Hop.
Leave comments on all the blogs to win!

Hello Stencil Guts!

Hi Stencil Lovers!
Are you starting to get the feel of all that StencilGuts can do for you?
When I opened up my package I was in my element.
I enjoy all the little details and shapes and possibilities they offered.
I immediately went to sorting them in many piles.

The flourishes are some of my favorites
I moved them around on black paper to see what I liked.

Kind of like a kaleidoscope...twists and turns...
I never knew what was going to pop up next!

I call this auditioning.

I took some of the geometric shapes
 and used stamps on them with a permanent ink.
Some phrases and words as well as shapes and designs.
There are a lot of possibilities here for making cards and scrapbook layouts.

With the flourish guts I made a Daily cover...
The steps loosely went like this.... 

 Well, That was Fun!

I had experimented with adhering the shapes to my book cover with these circles.
I used tacky glue, super glue, E-6000, crystal effects and my Xyron
and let them all dry.
(that's my first row of 5 circles across)
Every one of those adhesives worked great.
The only differences were mess and drying time.

So I continued adhering them with my Xyron Sticker Maker machine.
It was by far the easiest.

I played a LOT with gluing shapes into fun designs.

I made several into divider covers for my 3 ring planner
including this vase of flowers and the little  abstract piece.
I LOVE them added into my planner!

I like this one alot. The little squiggle shapes are fascinating!

How about the sunshine and the stone wall?
Seriously! So much fun to create with! 

Here is a list of the stencils I used along with the StencilGuts....

StencilClub Inspiration

March StencilClub inspiration is up over on the StencilGirl Talk Blog today.
It always amazes me that 4 people can work with the same stencils
and have totally different interpretations and outcomes.

Happy Arting!
