Maria popping in here today to talk about journaling blocks.
One day Mary Beth and I were talking stencils.....is that really a surprise??? We have had quite a few questions from our customers at StencilGirl about how to incorporate journaling into Art Journal pages, scrapbooks, etc....so I thought I would come and give you a few examples how you could take a stencil and tell your story.
Above you will see Dots and Dashes by Jessica Sporn, Unconnected Circles by Terri Stegmiller, Net by Mary Beth Shaw, Doodle-It-Daisy by Maria McGuire and Bamboo Wall by Cecilia Swatton
To see actual photos of each stencil for reference scroll down to the end of this post.
Sometimes just a part of a stencil will do the trick...as you can see above when I used Herringbone by Mary Beth Shaw, Scales Legends by Julie Snidle and Basket Weave Brick by Lizzie Mayne. Others used above are Heart Striped by Margaret Applin and Ladders by Carolyn Dube.
These were all done with Tombow Dual-Tip Brush Markers. I love to work with them! Above I used: It's a Small World Longitude by Mary C. Nasser, Corrugated Lines by Lizzie Mayne, Chevron Set #2 by Andrew Borloz and Curvy Ladder by Julie Snidle
I hope I gave you some ideas today on how you could use your stencils in different ways to journal. Did you ever use a stencil as a journaling block? We would LOVE to see!

Above I used: Circle Rays 6 by Michelle Ward, Sign Posts 6 by Terri Stegmiller, Ray Circles by Michelle Ward, Techno Insiders Circle by Seth Apter, Stitch a Circle and Doodle It Borders by Maria McGuire
