Happy Tuesday! Tina here today with my latest StencilGirl Project, or should I say trio of projects!?!?
When I sit down to create, I am usually inspired by a new product or technique. When I got my latest shipment of StencilGirl stencils, the Wolf stencil by Roxanne Cable was part of my order.
|L455 Wolf (aka by Bun Essentials)|
I just knew I wanted to create with it, but wasn't sure what to make. Because I was itching to create, I started by adding random spritzes of spray mist over the stencil. I used several sheets of deli paper just in case I wanted to use the stenciled paper as collage.
Special Note: I used both the positive and negative of the stencil. You get two totally different looks.
Not really knowing what to do next, I added random machine stitching to each page, in various decorative stitches.
One two of my pages, I also added line work with a graphic pencil, sealing with a spray fixative to ensure it wouldn't smear or blend.
I also used the stencil on several scraps of fabric, using fabric paint. I decided I would use these as the cover of a mini book.
I am often inspired by song lyrics, as they express my thoughts and feelings where I struggle with the words. For the journaling in my book, I used lyrics from the song 'Where I stood' by Missy Higgins. I choose several lyrics that had a special meaning to me and added them to each page.
For more interest, I also added hand stitching to several pages I love the little bits of dimension and contrast.
For the covers, I used additional stencils for a different look. They include:
Earth Song Symbols 2
I got so inspired by my mini, I wanted to keep creating. I've been obsessed with using clay in my art projects, so I used the Wolf stencil to create some customized clay embellishments.
Using the clay embellishments, I created two mixed media projects.
Do you ever get inspired by a stencil? I'd love to see your creations!
Thanks for stopping by!
