STAMPlorations April Stencil Challenge, reminder post

Hello everyone, it´s again time to remind you to play along with our monthly stencils challenge over at STAMPlorations blog! If you haven´t already, do join in on some stencil fun with us!

Here is what I created for the inspiration post:

It´s another art journal page, created using old vintage 1950s fashion pages in combination with STAMPlorations stencils.

There are plenty of media and paint residues on the background as my starting point, then I built upon that by adding stencil images with the Make Marks 2 stencil in various colours. There is also some golden glitter paste on the background, applied thru one of my stencil designs called “Onions in Raws”.

After adding all the stenciling, I adhered the fussy cut ladies onto the page and wrote the quote. I love this quote so much :-D!!! And you can also find some bits of stamping here and there. Those were made with Louise Nelson´s Quirky Birds stamp set she designed for AALL & Create.

So enough about my page, now is your turn to play and then submit to the April challenge! I hope you find some inspiration here and there is even more over at STAMPlorations blog by other DT girls.

Happy stenciling!!!

STAMPlorations Stencil Challenge – April

Hello everyone and welcome to the April stencil challenge at STAMPlorations. Like always, anything is allowed, just as long as your project features a stencil.

Here is my take for this months reveal – another art journal page:

For this page, I applied Distress Inks thru the various STAMPlorations stencils (listed in the product line up at the end of the post) onto a pre-treated art journal page background. See, I always add residue colors and media to art journal pages and then work my way from there to a finished page.

I´ve used a stamp set designed by my very favorite Louise Nelson by AALL & Create to create the journaling and the additional stamped patterns to the page. I love Louise´s artsyness & style and to have a stamp set by her is just something special for me.

And then the stencils, they are all by STAMPlorations – how gorgeous are they together???!!! Love them!!! and the face, it´s one of my faves from the faces stencil line at their store. And Helen´s mark making stencil works so well with all the 5×5 stencils!!

Now is your turn again, join the fun with us and create something for the challenge and don´t forget to play by the rules! Then you are eligible for prizes too!!!

Read more over at the STAMPlorations blog and hop over there for the full reveal (= more inspiration 🙂 ).

Happy stenciling,
