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!!

Thanks so much friends for joining me today, I adore all the comments that you have been leaving me on my video they all mean so very much to me so thank you again and thank you for sharing your time with me. Have a beautiful and peaceful week!!
You all have expressed how you loved the Art Journal Pages on a budget video I created so I decided to turn this into a series of videos for all of you. Come along with me as I show you how I created this art journal page with very limited and inexpensive supplies. Remember that although we all LOVE art supplies you can make absolutely beautiful pages without all the name brands and have a fabulous time doing it as well. Art is not about the “stuff” its about creating from you heart! I have included a couple little craft hacks in this one as well.
Grab the cup of coffee and lets get making some art !! 🙂
Hope you all enjoyed today’s video and thanks so much for sharing your time with me, it truly means so much.
In case you missed it, I was featured last week on StencilGirl Talk (StencilGirl Products blog) talking a little bit about the “other side” of me. Hope you take a minute to check it out here. Have a beautiful day my friends. See you Tuesday for another Stencil Crush Tuesday blog post and video xxoo – Sherry
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 🙂
Mary C. Nasser: Go Your Own Way Mini Stencil, Around Here Arrows Mini Stencil
MaryBeth Shaw: Planner Geo 6
Pam Carriker: Journal Texture #1 Stencil
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!!
