As part of being on the Stencilgirl Design team we get to make some cool projects for their “Throwback Thursday” project. Stencilgirl have some amazing stencils in their arsenal, seriously I could spend a fortune every time I go on their site. With such a huge inventory sometimes some of the older stencils get lost as they’re making new ones all the time. Hence throw back Thursday to highlight some of these amazing designs.
The stencils I’m using for my project today are by Terri Stegmiller and I love her stencil designs anyway and have used them in several projects already in my art journal projects.
These are the two stencils I’ve used in the project, Sign Posts and Striped Circles. You can click on the images to view the stencils in the site.
My Art Journal Page
I started by using the stripped circles in various shades of blue and green in the background. I made sure to vary the direction of the circles to create a more random and layered look to the background.
I then stamped the sing posts stencil in white because I knew I wanted to stamp my message in the posts. I had planned out what I was going to write ahead of time so I knew how many posts I needed.
This is what I love so much about stencils, you can use the same one many times but by isolating elements and changing directions they can look totally different each time.
I’ve been on a bit of a vintage lady kick this past few weeks so I could not resist using this amazing image in my page. I just love her, she’s so beautiful and goes perfectly with my page and message.
Here is another page I made in my altered book using the same Striped Circles stencil. Same stencil, totally different look.
Thank you so much for joining me today. I hope you picked up some inspiration to use for your own art projects. I’d really love to hear from you if you did and to see your work, it’s such a kick.
