StencilClub Voices climbed into a cave to make art with Carol Weibe's Caves and Ladders StencilClub Set

Hello to you. It's Carol Baxter and I am thrilled to share the lovely things our talented StencilClub Voices for September have made us with the StencilClub Set for September 2018!

Art journal pages and covers! Fabric painting! Bible Journaling! 

Take it away Elaine, Christy, Nancy, and Thea!

Walk Inside Your Story

Elaine Huffman's project encompasses the Caves and Ladders set and does double duty in answer to an art journaling prompt response. 

Elaine writes: "The prompt was to make something of our favorites - color, technique, etc. This page is my favorite colors and my favorite thing: Silence. I used Golden fluid acrylic paint, Jacquard Neopaque acrylic paint, Jacquard Lumiere acrylic paint, collage material, Staz On ink, StencilGirl®stencils and rubber stamps from a variety of artists."


Christy Anne used the larger stencil to add some more textured layers to the covers of The Stencilfied Journal as part of Prompt #12, Stencil Your Covers. She stenciled it first with modeling paste, let it dry and then hit it with Dylusions Shimmer Sprays in various colors to achieve richness. 

Christy combined the current club set with the July set, Ceramic Tiles by Gwen Lafleur.

Special Delivery: Moses

Nancy Taylor's Bible journaling page is about Moses' birth and "Special delivery" to the Pharoah's daughter in a basket.  

She used the small stencil from the Caves and Ladders set as well as words from the Mixed Media Mail Stencil by Carolyn Dube.  I used Distress Oxide inks and a brown Pitt pen to complete the pages.


Stenciled Silk, Ready to Quilt

Thea McCurry shares this simple yet elegant use of fabric paint on silk, mounted on a fabric backing. All ready for additional machine quilting when time allows!

Here is a closeup:


Carol here again. I joke quite often about the black hole in my desk. Scientists seem confident that matter which gets sucked into a black hole is gone for all practical purposes.  Because things on my desk do resurface, and the large stencil of Carol Weibe's Caves and Ladders StencilClub Set reminds me of a cenote, I decided it was time to change the energy pooling around my desk. 

I stenciled then flipped it to get the double grasses, well stones, and ground. I used acrylics (yellow, orange, neon pink, mint green, pale lavender, silver -ladder, bronze - rocks, and a couple shades of blue), white, black, green, and blue gel pens, a brown Inktense pencil, plus yellow and blue distress crayons.

Now that I look at the journal page I think it needs to become a mousepad! That will truly change the energy on my desk, right?!

We all had fun with these stencils and are sure you will too!

    1. Denise, the ideas behind art are as fascinating as the art itself. Of course, they are integral to its creation! Having my mind stimulated starts working the miraculous process of creating art and poetry, gifts for my soul.

  2. Great job ladies. With all this inspiration I can’t wait to get my set and start playing.

  3. Love these projects ladies! Thanks for sharing your creativity!
    Well done!

    1. Lisa, your constant encouragement of others and your own and creative output always delight and astonish me! (Hahahahahaha—output is a funny word to use for artwork, but I am going to let it stand to give you a giggle.)

  4. Wowzers! It brings tears to my eyes every time I see wonderful expression of color and ideas, using my stencils. It is such a gift! Thank you, Elaine, Nancy, Thea and Carol! Each day, I am grateful for the chance to create art. It is my spiritual practice. And seeing the work of others deepens and enriches my own. We are in this journey of self discovery and expression together, and the willingness to share what we make brings us into a community of makers. I call that happiness.

  5. Wonderful art everyone. I can't wait to get my set in the mail. The stencil designs this month are very exciting, to say the least.
