Stenciled Journal Page

This is a journal page I made on the weekend. I used the tag I made previously as a design element. The background of the page was made using several layers of stencil designs. I used a combo of Distress Paint Dabbers and Silks.
I think this page still needs something. I will let it sit until next weekend and see if I am inspired.

Repurposed Wallet Tin

My husband bought a new wallet and it came in this great tin. My daughter and I decided to do a make over on it using stencils and Distress Paint Dabbers. This box will be used to store jewelry.

More Fun with Stencils

I got home from work yesterday and there was a package. It was the stencils I had ordered from Green Pepper Press/ Michelle Ward. Of course I could not wait to play so I made this quick tag.

This tag used three different stencils. I added the color using Distress Inks.

This is the reverse side of the tag.

Portrait on Stone Paper

I picked up a pad of Stone Paper at Walgreens on the weekend. It is a smooth surfaced paper made from stone instead of wood pulp. After outlining the face with a Faber-Castell Pitt pen, I decided to experiment with my Copic markers. They look like watercolor on the stone paper. I was able to use my fingers to manipulate and mix the colors. I mixed a little white acrylic on the face to add highlights. I want to play with the paper a little more before I buy a pad without lines online. They are a lot more expensive than the $3.99 I paid for the lined pad at Walgreens.
