Let's start off with Rae and Barbara will follow...ENJOY!

Take it away Rae!!!




I am in love with all stencils lately. It seems they add just the right amount of "something" to whatever I am working on at the moment. So, when StencilGirl asked myself and the rest of the Art to the 5th Team to create a handful of projects using a few of our favorites from her line I jumped at the chance. 
This painted bag was my first project. I was in the process of painting and stitching my newest carry all when I realized it needed something extra. I chose the 6 x 6  Half Moon Slant stencil and added a fun pocket to the reverse side of my bag. I love that it is modern and funky looking! This is my favorite stencil of all and can see it being used over and over again when I create! 

Next  I created an art journal page. I loved the 6 x 6 Heart & Flowers stencil for this project. It is a big open stencil that allows for tons of options when it comes to adding color and detail. Whether you are filling the stencil in with paint, as I did, or spraying with ink and stamping on a surface, this stencil rocks! To see the free video on how I created this journal page click here!  

For my final project I wanted to incorporate my Documented Life PlannerFor my planner pages I chose the 6 x 6 Flemish Bond Brick stencil and using white gloss paint filled large areas, overlapping the stencil as I went. The white really made the stencil marks pop off my brightly painted pages! Once the stencil dried I knew the brick look was calling for a Graffiti styled page, so I started adding doodled shapes, stray marks and bits and pieces here and there along with a few contrast details. I am thrilled with this page and can't wait to use this stencil in other projects!
For a list of supplies used in all of Rae's projects, visit her Blog HERE.
Rae is a self taught mixed media artist, who loves to create, blog and instruct. She has a passion for re-purposing found items and turning them into something beautiful. Her mission- to integrate up-cycled tidbits of everyday life into her art, has inspired her to approach creating in a whole new light, sending her on scavenger hunts of the largest kind in search of new materials. Rae has found a real love when it comes to combining paint, textiles, and paper- something that is evident in much of her art. her She has a fondness for both pattern and color, which has led her to create outside the lines, resulting in artwork that is both busy and polychromatic. When it comes to art, Rae is unable to devote herself to just one type media and is forever putting a new twist on old projects. From painted fabric to collaged canvas you will recognize her work for it’s funky feminine style and bright bold colors! Rae, a devoted mother of five, is happiest in her home based studio where she can balance both family and creating. Her work can be found in her Etsy shop, on her website, and in boutiques across the Southeast. She has been published in numerous art based publications. Rae lives in Harmony, FL with her supportive husband and five lovely children. To learn more, visit Rae’s Blog HERE  Interested in taking one of her workshops?
