You are here for 4 inspirational projects as StencilClub Voices are stenciling on shoeboxes, within art journals, on leather covers, and painting a face.
Cynthia White's Beautiful Journal Cover
Cynthia says, "I am a journalist and love leather! I stepped out of my comfort zone and made my first leather A5 TN and used stencil girl stencils to decorate the cover. I wanted the colors to match my pen."
Wendy Featherstone used the Mash Up! Set to
Create a Multi-Layered Background
Wendy says, "I'm so excited that I got to work with these awesome stencils, the possibilities are endless!"
She first started playing with them using coffee filters, just adding layers.
Then, she chose 3 colors that she had close by and some white and put some color down, after that...the fun began. SHe used the stencils to create a colorful and textured background.
Then she wanted to bring in the coffee filters, so she chose one, ripped it up and added it randomly to her piece.
Stenciling with Pam Carrier's Create Face Stencil came next because, Wendy says, "I love her eyes. I added a few more layers, some journaling, and doodles. I love how she turned out!
"These stencils are great for adding textures, depth, and dimension. Whatever you make with them, they will provide lots of possibilities 😊"
Linda Edkins Wyatt's Shoebox Transformation
Linda used the January 2019 StencilClub Mash Up designs, created by Seth Apter and MaryBeth Shaw, some painted grunge technique, and a little Baked Texture embossing powder, to transform an ordinary shoebox into a unique storage solution.
Take a look at her Mixed Media and Fiber Art blog where she shares the creation process.
I enjoyed the layering opportunities the Shaw Apter Mash-Up set offered.
The bottom layer is a dusting of blue and purple inks, while the building portion of the small stencil and the numbers portion of the large stencil from the spine and the page in Cheesecake Yellow (Paper Artsy paint) make up the third layer.
Ephemera papers and fabric cut into shapes, plus a ticket and a couple of flowers glued down became the fourth layer.
The drips and crossed organic dots were stenciled with Sour Grapes, Moonlight and Magenta mixed with Moonlight and I went back to Cheesecake for the hash marks.
The writing came last in purple and green pen. That's my name at the bottom written to look like grass.
