I’ve been a member of the StencilGirl Club for a year now and boy can I tell you I love all of the stencils that are sent to me each month.  Stencils allow me to really let go and play with paint all day long with no care in the world.  I just play and whatever my hands do, I just go with it!!  LOL!!

I created 7 projects for my post today.

Here’s a sneak peak:

Stop on by StencilGirl blog to see the projects in full and the tutorial!!

Hello everyone!!! I’m super doper excited to be here with all of you today: I’m Guest Designing for StencilGirl today.

Why is this so exciting because I’ve always been a clean and simple artist but since Creativation this year I’ve been so intrigued with mixed media and stencils.  I met Mary Beth Shaw while at the show and was amazed at what she shared with me.

So I bought my first stencil and my life hasn’t been the same since!!

Here’s a sneak peek:

Art Journaling Page + Giveaway

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with another Art Journaling Page plus a Giveaway to share with all of you!!

My good friend Josefine and I decided to get together and do a mini Instagram hop using Gel Press Petite Plates.

Both of us love using Gel Press Plates on our art journaling pages.  So when we saw the petite plates we had to give them a try and share what we love with all of you!!

This petite set comes with 3 gel press plates:

  • 3″ Hexagon
  • 3″ Oval
  • 3″ Rectangle

We wanted to show how we used it to get everyone excited about them.

Take a look at my page:

I wanted to show how you could create different impressions using all three of the plates. My design is very random and I love it that way.  Not much thought goes into my pages. I used StencilGirl Stencils for each of my impressions.

So for each impression I use the same process:

  • This what the plates looks like once you take them out of the packaging.

Gel Press Plate

  • Once I decided on the plate that I wanted to use, I placed the stencil right on top of the plate.

  • Then I added some paint on top of the stencil and used a brayer to even the paint onto the plate.

  • This is what the plate looks like after the paint is evened out.

  • Take the stencil off of the plate to see the pattern transferred onto the plate.

  • Press the plate onto the paper to create the design your looking for.

Totally fun and no two impressions will ever look the same.
