Stencil It at AVJ

It's the first Friday in the month and tine for a brand new challenge at A Vintage Journey. Today we launch a 'Stencil It' theme hosted by the lovely Amanda and she says - "There are so many fantastic stencils available to us right now and so many ways in which to use them so we would like you to include stencilling in whatever it is you choose to create for this challenge. Don’t forget all the ways in which they can be used – inks , sprays , paints, texture/embossing pastes and gesso are all stencil friendly. So be sure to have fun and embrace your stencils in your vintage; shabby; mixed-media; art journaling; industrial or steampunk projects".

I was recently teaching my Recipes for Success #3 and  #4 journalling workshop with DecoArt media paints and mediums, whilst demoing and joining in I produced this A4 sheet and intended it to be cut into two journal pages but I liked the three main areas so much, with the reverse stencil monoprints, I decided to chop it and make two cards.

I used the two main corner pieces and also cut up the left over piece to add layers.

I found two photos that I have printed using free internet images (usually the Graphics Fairy).

And put them together using sentiments (I think from Crafty Individuals) ....

.... and some stamped and die-cut pieces.

I hope you will be able to join us at AVJ, you can use any products, all we ask is your project reflects a vintage; shabby; mixed-media; art journaling; industrial, timeworn or steampunk style. Please do go take a look at all the wonderful contributions from the Creative Guides, as always they have pulled out all the tops to share their amazing inspirational pieces.

Welcome to new followers and thanks for stopping by. I know I get a huge audience that come through Pinterest and I do appreciate all who pop in to see what I have been creating. I really appreciate each and every one of you who takes the time to scroll through my projects and posts, thank you.

Have a great weekend.
