I am thrilled to be a participant in a Blog Hop featuring the TEXTures 2 Series stencils. This is a collaboration between Jill K. Berry and Artistcellar.
You can find these Artistcellar Signature Series Stencils by Jill K Berry here: http://www.artistcellar.com/stampstencil/acSignatureSeries.html
The individual stencil names are: 069-Picasso, 070-Bird, 071-Gera, 072-Miro. The style number is etched on the stencil somewhere.
Simply comment below how YOU would like to use these stencils in your own style, and I'll pick a name using random.org on 12/20/13 In order to qualify, YOU MUST LEAVE YOUR E-MAIL ADDRESS IN THE COMMENTS USING THE name(at)domain(dot)com FORMAT. For example my email address would be kimnugent(at)yahoo(dot)com. When you use the (at) and (dot) in parentheses, the Spambots can't get your e-mail address (it's how you get on lists you don't want to get on).
For my project I decided to make a journal with an etched brass cover. I securely taped the Gera stencil down to a piece of brass. Then used a sponge to sponge StazOn ink over the stencil to act as a resist. Next I etched to cover.
I also etched some scrap pieces of copper using the same technique. Eyelets were used to fasten the copper to the brass and holes for the binding.
Next I made some journal pages using packing tape transfers from magazine pages. The page on the top was the packing tape transfer. The page below is the magazine page after the transfer was removed. This first transfer worked so well I was lured into a sense of false skill.
The second transfer didn’t come off of the magazine page nearly as easily. I am happy with the end results though.
There are many more techniques that I would like to explore using these stencils.
Check out the other participating blogs for more inspiration and chances to win. I am already looking forward to trying some of their ideas!
