I mentioned before our trip that I received several of Julie Fei-Fan Balzer’s new stencils from The Crafter’s Workshop. Here is how I used the Summer stencil.
Here are a couple more of the stencils and what I did with them. The first up is Herringbone.
What’s neat about stencils is you don’t have to use the whole stencil. I used it as backgrounds for two of my unfinished journal pages. This one is very delicate. I used stamp pads with sponges to color the stencil.
The next one I had already painted the background and then just added the stencil. Then took the paint pen and painted on top of the stenciling.
The next stencil is Wonky Circles.
I had forgotten that I used it on a page in my August journal.
This is another page I made using this stencil.
You will notice I didn’t use the complete stencil. I also used the circles around the edges and the little stars in different areas on the page.
It has been a long time since I’ve really played with stencils and they are so much fun!! I’ll be moving them to fabric next! Please stay tuned.
These fun stencils come in 6 x 6 and 12 x 12. If you are interested in purchasing Julie’s stencils, go to Julie’s shop.
