Stencil Crush Tuesday 1/24/17

Hi Friends, I’m back with a new Stencil Crush Tuesday and this week I delve into creating your own embellishments out of scrap papers and using them on a project.

Wow it’s hard to believe that we are almost to the end of January.  Typically January seems like the longest month of the year and yet here we are in the last full week of the month.  This weeks project are some collaged art tags and I truly am trying to mix it up for all of you but Damn I’m just in love with these water color crayons and collage haha.  This weeks video does have a twist to it and I think you will like it but it’s a bit longer than my other videos so hang in there (I did try to edit out as much not needed “stuff” as possible to shorten it up).  So without further ado here is this weeks Stencil Crush Tuesday Video, I hope you enjoy!!

Links below on where you can find these gorgeous stencils and stamps.

Here are a few close ups to see the details on the tags and the little embellished circles.


Here are the links to the stencils and stamps used in today’s video:

Gigi Stencil, Fingal Flower & Leaf stencil, Butterfly Journeys, and Mary C. Nasser’s Stamps

These circles would be awesome for planners and for your art journals, you could run them though a sticker machine and turn them into stickers (put them on a piece of deli paper or waxed paper and have them ready to use).  Backing up to give you an idea of where the inspiration came for these, I was in Michael’s over the weekend (I went to get the new Jane Davenport watercolor markers and of course they were out) so walking around I saw all this new planner and art journal “stuff”.  Everything from paper, to washi tape to die cuts and stickers.  Well there were these gold seal stickers that just jumped out at me and I almost bought them but I refrained because I almost never use stickers after I buy them.  And I was like I could make some custom ones that I can use in my art.  And now that I have I want to make more lol, they are so easy and fun and just a relaxing and fun way to spend a few minutes creating when you don’t have tons of time.  They also help you use up your scraps so there is an added bonus at least to me, as I always have a HUGE bin of scraps that I just can’t toss because I always feel like it would be a waste and I just have to be more creative on ways to use them up.  So enjoy using up them scraps and creating your one of a kind embellishments.  If you do create some please post a link here in the comments so that I can see what fun creations you have made.  Thank you all for sharing your precious time with me!  Peace and Love to you all xxoo
