To me Mermaids are magical, mystical, strong beings. They seem almost light as air, yet with a beauty that just commands respect. For my art journal page I came up with a quote that I would like to share with you.
Being a Mermaid means being Brave enough to swim into the unknown – Sherry Canino

Hi Friends and welcome to this weeks Stencil Crush Tuesday. This week its all about the Stars. I have been wanting to create a page using Mary C. Nasser’s Star Map stencil because I love it so much. So my art journal page this week is centered around that stencil. I really enjoyed creating this page and I love the quote on it which says: “Be Glad of Life because it gives you the chance to love, and to play and to look at the stars”
So grab your coffee and lets see what stencils I’m crushing on this week 🙂
Stencils used in this weeks video can be found here:
Good Morning Friends and thank you so much for being here with me today for another Stencil Crush Tuesday Video. This week’s video is a shorty, but I think it really packs a punch. I am always inspired by other artists who create quite a bit different than myself. This week’s video is inspired by Dina Wakley. Over the summer I had challenged myself while working in my art journal to leave some “white space”. For some reason this concept continues to elude me. You will see in this video I actually had to “think” about leaving white space, I know it sounds so crazy! But I challenge any of you out there who are like me and just LOVE TO COVER THE PAGE, to give it a try. Feel free to leave me a link here to your blog and be sure to link your blog post back to this post as well 🙂 I would love to see your work!!
In the details of my video on my YouTube Channel I reference the video by Dina Wakley that inspired this art journal page and her technique. This challenge also reminded me that even when you create what seems “Quick and Simple ” it can have a profound impact and also this is a wonderful way to create when you don’t have lots of time to make a long elaborate page. I am using some of my absolute favorite stencils today by Artist Mary C. Nasser as well as a newer stencil by Marybeth Shaw and a fun texture stencil by Pam Carriker. So as they say….. on with the show (or video lol 🙂
As always thanks so much for sharing some of your precious time with me today and thank you to everyone who takes the time to leave me such kind and loving comments as they mean the world to me. Wishing everyone a beautiful and peaceful Tuesday!!

I am also using the Jane Davenport Face Stamps and some of her new paint markers and I have to say that I really do like them, well worth the price!
So grab a cup of coffee or your drink of choice and sit back and enjoy the tutorial for this week 🙂

The project I have to share with you today is Love themed in a Shabby Chic style and centers on a quote that ended up coming up with since I couldn’t find one that I really liked. And since Valentine’s day is about love I think it’s important to remember to love yourself so this is the quote on my page today:
“Your Love is Precious
Don’t Forget to give it
to the most important
Person in your life…..
