Stencil Crush Tuesday – Texture w/ gesso

Hi Friends,

Hope everyone is enjoying the sunshine we have had these past couple of days.  Sure does make you just feel better overall when the sun is out that’s for sure!!

Today’s tutorial is a short one but still lots of fun.  I am using a beautiful stencil today called Art Deco Wallpaper by Nathalie Kalbach.  I am in total love with this stencil !!

So grab those stencils and paints and lets get creating friends!!

With some personal things that have been going on in my life lately this art journal page came from an expression within.  And I absolutely love the quote that came with the stamp set that I used.  I hope you enjoyed todays tutorial.  I am always thankful that you share your precious time with me each week.  I do hope that everyone has an amazing week full of love and peace!!

Stencil Crush Tuesday & Giveaway

Hi Friends and thanks for joining me for another Stencil Crush Tuesday.  Hope that everyone had a beautiful holiday this past week or weekend if you celebrate.  I certainly enjoyed the lovely weather we had for the most part and YEAH my Autumn Cherry Trees and Weeping Cherry have started to blossom so excited.  Especially because the crazy weather we had last year where it warmed way up way too early and then we had several frosts and snow my trees last year didn’t get any blooms :(.  So I was thrilled to see the blossoming this weekend for sure!!

So to catch you all up on a few happenings in my life, March and the beginning of April have been very hard for me it is this time last year that my dad fell terminally ill (which we found out in March and lost him just 5 weeks later) that in turn spiraled things for me with my mom having dementia and having to find her a home.  So for the past few weeks I have honestly been in a funk.  I know….. you wouldn’t know it from my social media feeds as I don’t typically talk about things that are bothering me as I tend to really keep to myself and withdraw when times like this happen for me and I just need my quite space I guess with my family.  So if I have not been commenting or chatting etc lately as much on FB and IG well now you know where I’ve been.

So on with some happier news ….. well I have several creative things in the works that I have also have had my head buried in and will for a few more weeks that I am just bursting at the seams to share with you but can’t quite yet!  But soon I promise!!

So on to today’s video and giveaway ……what giveaway ???? yup you read that right all the details will be in the video details so be sure to check it out on my Youtube Channel and below is a photo of the prize!!

Painterly Blooms – Stencil Crush Tuesday

Hi friends and welcome to another week of Stencil Crush Tuesday.  I myself have been dreaming about spring (okay maybe more like summer ) but I do love the smell of warm spring air, buds on the trees and all the new flowers and trees coming to life after a long cold winter.  So my video today focuses around flowers – Painterly Blooms to be exact and how you can easily use your stencils to create these.  So grab your stencils and your paints and lets get creating.
