Hi creative friends, I’m excited to share with you this weeks Stencil Crush Tuesday video. A couple things I wanted to share with all of you first thank you so very much for all the kind comments on my videos and on my blog, it has truly meant a lot to me because when I create these videos I may have an idea in mind but not always. Many times it’s just me loving certain stencils and playing to see what they can do, so you will see things like me deciding or changing my mind during the video – I try to edit out some of the decision making and such to keep it to a nice length to watch where you don’t have to commit to tons of time but some of it gets left because it’s me sharing not just these gorgeous stencils with you but my process of creating (which yeah can be a bit odd at times lol)
The stencil I’m crushing on this week just kinda “Popped” out at me the other day. I was actually picking up my art table and putting away some stencils I had out and I hadn’t a clue what stencil or stencils were going to be featured this week when one fell out of the bag I was holding. When I saw it I was like OMG I love this stencil – yes I hate to say that I have so many that some have not been used yet, some I forget about and so on. So here was this beauty laying on my table begging to be used. (back tracking a bit) my Hubby went in for surgery to repair a hernia Thursday very early morning so I knew that I would probably be stressed trying to get this video done when I hadn’t even thought about it when Sunday rolled around. Having a few hours to myself while he took a nap I pulled out a sheet of water color paper got my camera out and started taping. When I went to edit the video I was like what the heck is the name of this stencil – I knew it was one by MaryBeth Shaw but when I went to look for it on the StencilGirlProducts.com site I couldn’t find it. I went to look at the numbers on it that code it for easy look up and WAAAAA it’s a StencilGirl Club Stencil. Yup that’s right this baby is an exclusive – so you can get this stencil still but you have to join the club to do so – honestly it’s so worth it (an no one is paying me or telling me to say this it’s strictly my opinion) I love StencilGirl Club. You get exclusive videos by the artists each month as well as the 3 monthly stencils and access to the private FB group and now the opportunity to be a part of their Pintrest Board where you can pin your StencilGirl Club art. So here is the link if you want to check it out and this weeks STENCIL CRUSH is Stencil: SC 04-2016 (from April of 2016).
So I have been long winded here on this post so lets get to the video 🙂
