Daily With A Stencil

I have been looking at my stencils in a whole new light.
Especially now that I am on the StencilGirl Creative Team!
They are another design element.
Another direction to go.
Another inspiration.

I used the 6x6 Centered Circles stencil by MaryBeth Shaw.
I like the smaller size stencils alot.
But then my Daily is a smaller scaled book.
I might add here that this particular page had gesso as a base.
Depending on what projects I am into....
Depending on what is on my brush.....
Sometimes I add it into my Daily, sometimes not. 
I have had a lot of goldfinches visit at my studio window.

On a side note,
The family got together
to help my son and his wife
paint the new house and move in to it.
All in one weekend!
Sunday night and I am exhausted.
But loved every minute of it!
I hope you all had a good weekend too.
