StencilGirl's Crazed Stencil

If you are looking for our StencilClub GIVEAWAY it is in the post right under Marjie's.

Marjie Kemper here, sharing a page I made in my art journal using Wendy Aikin's 6X6 Crazed stencil. I started out  by stamping and stenciling on a piece of scrapbook paper.

I ran it through my Xyron Creative Station and placed it in my journal before die-cutting the sign, post, and letters.  Dies are Sizzix's Hanging Sign and Word Play. To make them stand out a bit, I glued the paper to chipboard before die-cutting them. 

I used the Crazed stencil in places on the background paper with Shabby Shutters Distress Ink, and on the die-cut pieces with Vermillion Archival Ink.  

I colored in the arrows border stamp with a water brush filled with Dylusions Ink Spray.

I also used Michelle Ward's Circle 9 stencil to fill in some of the background.

After adding some ball chain with gel medium, I used the Xyron Mega Runner to adhere the signpost to the page.

I printed the quote on my computer, cut it up, and added it to the page.

And that's it for today's journal page.  Come visit my site to keep up with my other antics!


Before you go.....Maria here....Nathalie Kalbach has a StencilGirl Blog Hop today with her Crackle stencil from StencilGirl and both Marjie and I are in it! Come visit us on our personal blogs. You can start on Nathalie's Blog. It starts at 3AM Central Time!


  1. I love how Marjie incorporates stencils into her die cuts and letters. It makes her work all the more unique, textured, and fascinating. Wonderful color combos here too!

  2. You have such a modern Xyron compared to my good old 850- but my 850 still works just as well now as it did then...but I digress...fab card- love the way all your elements command my eye to follow with the reds and arrows so I can take in all the great texture and layers!

  3. Love that you used the stencil on the sign post and the lettering as well. So graphic and clean...Arrows UP yay! xox

  4. Loving the stenciling on the letters. Lots of layers that keep moving my eyes around! PERFECT paper crafting meets Art Journaling post Marjie! What a great idea to use your Xyron! I have to say those arrows are my favorite part!

  5. What super ideas! The sign post is so cute!

  6. fabulous!! thanks for sharing your art.

  7. Marjie is always thinking outside of the box and combining unexpected materials! Since I have been a scrapbooker for more than a decade, I especially love it when I can use those supplies in my new art journaling efforts! Bravo, Marjie!

  8. It's almost impossible to read your instructions ---- the gray print on the black & gray dots is not enough contrast.
