playing with stencils


I love using stencils, especially sequin waste, in my journal, and decided to have a go at covering a page just using stencils.  I used a combination of Stewart Gill and Crafters Workshop stencils, both available at Paddy's Stamping Place; and loved the result I have to say!  

 

So today I used the piece to demonstrate making a little book as part of my Art Journaling 3 class. I made a second sheet of stencilled paper and used it inside my folded book to create additional signatures.


- a great little book to journal in, and tuck inside one of my larger journals!  Art journaling 3 is all about adding little pockets, books and tags to your journal, and developing writing in your journal.  


I'm so glad none of us were suffering from colds or hayfever, our magnetic poetry style writing would have been seriously disturbed lol


There were little words everywhere!!  But they made cool additions to our tags...
