Stitches & Stencils by Kristi Nazzaro

Stitches & Stencils by Kristi Nazzaro
A Mixed Media Tutorial Featuring StencilGirl© Products

Hello Friends! I was so excited when StencilGirl© invited me to do a guest blog post for them.  I love their stencils and use them frequently in my work.  Talk about a Fan Girl moment.

Lately I’ve been experimenting with monochromatic themes in my art journals and wanted to share how fun these can be using StencilGirl© Products.  I adore big, bold, bright colors in my work.  Rainbows bring my heart such joy.  I’ve created an acrostic poem using our old friend ROYGBIV.  Do you remember him from grade school?  An acrostic is a poem in which the first letter of each line spells out a word, message or alphabet.  I put a fresh spin on an old classic (ROYGBIV) by creating a poem that not only acknowledges goals I have achieved but encourages me to keep reaching for those stars.  Acrostic poems are a fun way to keep important words front and center. 

The stencils I used for this project are:

I can’t wait to see what fun acrostics you come up with and the amazing StencilGirl© Products you choose for your project!
