Hi everyone! I am so excited to be here on the StencilGirl® blog today as a guest designer.
My name is Niamh Baly and I am a Primary (elementary) school teacher from Tasmania, Australia, a content creator and mum to two gorgeous girls. I am also stencil addict! Stencils are such an amazing tool to help produce fabulous artwork and are so simple to use. One of my favourite things about StencilGirl® stencils is that there is such a huge choice of word stencils. I love adding text to my artwork and in particular the wall of words stencil has some amazing phrases that are perfect for most every project. Text helps to add a focal point to your piece and can help you give meaning to your artwork.
In this project we will be breaking into a stash of gel printed papers using lots of wonderful stencils and creating a collaged art journal page. Below is a video taking you through the gel printing process (it is addictive too – so be warned) as well as how I constructed the final page. This is a huge art journal page (11 x 14in) created in the large Dina Wakley journal, but you can scale this project to any size you are comfortable with.

Thank you so much for stopping by the blog.
I hope that this has inspired you to get into your gel printed papers and create something beautiful.
