Found Object Art by Tina Walker

You can discover the stencils Tina used and she has a tutorial on her A Dog's Life blog.

Kiala Givehand's Bullet Journal

Kiala says, "I love to use StencilGirl stencils in her bullet journal because it takes the guess work out of creative ideas for customizing and creating beautiful page spreads. I like to use the stencils that have larger openings to create unique pages for logging things like gratitude, habits, and moods."

Stencil Used: Fleuron Rieven Glyph M173 by Steven Skaggs

Stencil used:  Carolyn Dube's Mini Alphabet from StencilClub April 2014

You can see a flip through of Kiala's bullet journal on Kiala's YouTube channel.

Girl with Red Lips & Weird Jumper ~ Louise Nelson

Isn't it interesting how Louise incorporated the stencil Organic Roots Large L491 By Carol Wiebe? Quite imaginative!

Stencil used in jumper: Circles Circles L301 By Traci Bautista

Carol Baxter's Valentine Notebook

Carol says, "I am forever taking or making notes. Rather than cover my desk (and walls, and side of filing cabinet, and computer tower...) in post-its, I am taking a tip from a former co-worker and keeping notebooks. January's is almost full... here's February's!"

"I figure when I am done and no longer need the notes within I can tear them out and rebind something else in the composition book covers."
Home is Where the Heart Is by Andrew Borloz

Heart Striped S068 by Margaret Applin

Belen Sotelo's Grow A Little, Textured Art Journal Page

Stencil pictured above: Warped Holes 6 by Lizzie Mayne. Belen also used texture paste and Lindy's sprays on her page.

Art journaling in a vintage book with Karen Gaunt

Karen says, "I love to doodle, scribble and make marks all over my page but sometimes it can be hard to know where to put them without it becoming overwhelming. By using the gorgeous River Rocks Stencil as my base I could add some cool designs all over my spread."

The River Rocks Stencil comes in small, mini, and large sizes.
