One Stencil, Three Projects!


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:

Circle Play
Earth Song Symbols 2 
Pickleweed Mini 

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!
