StencilGirl Meets Emerald Creek


Hello and Welcome 
to Day 3 of StencilGirl's Blog Hop with Emerald Creek.
What a great match up!
 I like to give any product I am sent a thorough testing.
Which means I try a lot of things and make a lot of mess!


Embossing Powders for me to play with.


Here is one of my favorites from these last few weeks.


on a torn out sheet of sketchbook paper...
which I mounted on top of a black covered journal.


Simple and Masculine.



My second project started out with glass bead gel.
I wanted to see the depth and texture with the embossing powders.
Fun! 


I used the bee from the Fly Away Home Stencil.


I love how this little bee turned out!


This next one began on a little 3"x 5" canvas.
I used Dirty Sand Baked Texture in the middle.
 The Patina Oxide and Deep Sea Baked Textures are on the sides. 


Many layers later....
and some chipboard...
and some paint....


I love it! 

which just melted into the background
 but left a hint of texture on the edge of the canvas...
and the Journal Texture #1 Stencil on the chipboard.


It's perfect hanging on my art room wall.


My last two practice pieces aren't included in any journals or projects yet.
Maybe they'll be a tip-in flap for a future week in my planner...
or an ATC base... or a bookmark... or something? 


I love these blues.


And how about this Boho Butterfly!
The Deep Sea Baked Texture is the outline 
and I painted and shaded the wing colors with a variety of mediums.

Thanks for visiting today.
