StencilGirl and ReSketch

Happy Earth Day!
Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. Rethink. Right?
Each team member was sent two ReSketch journals to play in.
Blank pages! What fun!

I started out playing with the little journal covers and went from there.

I decided to make a little traveler's type of notebook cover
to hold the two ReSketch journals.
The outside cover is Tangerine Kraft-Tex Paper leftover from a previous hop.
I sewed canvas paper to the inside cover.

I used my own Curlicue Wide Borders on the outside covers.
I stenciled it lightly with white gesso 
and used Acrylic Paint Pens to color it.
I embellished the loopy loops into flowers 
and made a nice graphic cover design.

To construct the dori....
 I used notes from a class I had taken on making an Artsy Dori.
Not quite like the original but I love how it turned out!
I decided to start the new year with gratitude and positive affirmations.
So I filled the pages.... alphabetically? LOL

I love that little pink scribbly design (March 2015 Stencil Kit (4" x 4"stencil)).

There you go! That was fun!
I love my little dori!
