It's an honor to be included in this Stencil Girl blog hop featuring Stencil Girl's map stencils:
Even though Mary Beth Shaw (the Stencil Girl herself) asked us to create one project . . . well I couldn't just stop at one. The first one I started with was an altered book. We recently returned from California and I had a book called *Crossing California*. After adding my own pages to the book, I went to work on the cover.
I built up some layers on the cover using various scrapbook travel papers then colored Wood Icing with a dab of acrylic paint. Using the Latitude and Longitude stencil, I applied Wood Icing to the stencil.
Using the same stencil, I made a simple tag to add to the book pages. For this tag I first secured the stencil to the tag using temporary tape (painters tape works just as well). I then applied VersaMark ink to the tag through the stencil. After picking up the stencil, I sprinkled the tag with clear embossing powder and heated to create the image. Distress Inks and water were used for the background. The VersaMark image creates a watermark effect:
I just couldn't stop working with these fabulous stencils so I turned to one of Stencil Girls pretty Peacock Feather stencils
and created this canvas:
After securing the stencil to the paper using temporary tape, I painted through the stencil using Copic Markers. Then I applied VersaMark ink randomly over the stencil, removed the stencil and sprinkled with glittering embossing powders from Ranger Ink.
I hope you enjoyed this little venture into my Stencil Girl projects.
