Sewn, Stenciled, Hand Lettered Card ~ Tammy Hall Tutterow
Back in November I shared a tutorial for an art journal page I created using the L304 Shattered Stencil. I created the art for the page on a piece of cardstock larger than my journal. After cutting the piece down to fit in my book, I had a fairly large strip of the art left over. I have been saving it for just the right inspiration. This week I decided that using it on a card for a friend was the perfect use.
To change up the art a little, I added some straight sewing lines between the rays of color. I did a bit of fussy cutting to remove the white background. I adhered it to an A2 sized card. I added machine stitching around the front of the card to tie into the stitching on the rays.
I used hand lettering to add a sentiment and tie into the doodled style on the original piece of art. I think it gave it a fun and personal touch, perfect for a dear friend.
I Shall Go Art Journal Spread ~ Carol Baxter
I used people clipped from magazines I was about to toss in the recycle bin to make this spread in my large Canva art journal. Loose black thread tethers the balloons.
Mary Beth Shaw’s Chain Mail Large stencil layered underneath the whole spread was perfect to bind the characters together. Layered partially over of two of the characters in paint and pen, it sets the other free. If she really goes…
Go ahead, pull a stencil from your stash that you have not used in a while. Take a long look. What will you create?
