It's a rare project from me which doesn't include the use of a stencil somewhere, so I loved Amanda's theme. I've been playing with one of the newer Tim Holtz Layering Stencils, some DecoArt crackle paste and my favourite blues and browns to create this tag. Do come over to Words and Pictures if you'd like to see more.
A great theme but could I think what to create? - no! Ideas don't seem to be coming too easily at the moment so I decided to get my journal out and just play ...... this is what happened. If you would like to see how I got here please pop over to Addicted to Art.
I used multiple stencils (5 in total!) in the making of my mixed media plaque for Amanda's wonderful theme. I coloured through them, embossed with them, stamped through them and used texture paste, inks and paints - I was in stencil heaven! I have a few step by step photos on my blog on how I did it, hope you can stop by to take a look.
I pulled out several of my Wendy Vecchi stencils, combining them with two of her background stamps and some Idea-ology pieces to create my stencil project. You will find more photos and details on my blog post here. I hope you'll stop by!
I had intended using a background made with stencil mono-printing as journal pages but they ended up as two cards. I love the fact that we can creatively start a piece with one idea in mind and end up with something completely different.

I love working with my stencils and decided it would be fun to incorporate them onto a canvas with masking techniques and stamping. Love for you to stop by my blog Juliz Design Post where I will show you all the ongoing stages .
I actually had something of a plan in my head for this canvas, wanting to show how stencils can be used in layers with a variety of textures to create the perfect basis for the addition of a little colour and a scattering of embellishments. Find out how it came together (with a step by step tutorial for that background) on my blog.
I think you'll agree our Creative Guides have certainly embraced their stencils and offered a wealth of inspiration .
Hope you will be able to join us in our 'Stencil It' challenge.
We look forward to seeing what you create
The challenge begins today and runs through to Thursday 1st Sept 2016.
