I have a new addiction….stencils!! I always seem to be a bit behind the curve. They are certainly not new, and many artists have been using them forever. It seems that there are so many really pretty designs out there now. I just ordered six from Stencil Girls.
And…then I found Tim Holtz' stencils which I think are the perfect size for journaling. You can find them on Amazon. You can find his entire line at Scrapbook dot com.
I had a few of my own and played in my journal this week.
At the same time I'm working in my tiny journal I call "Bits and Pieces". I started this journal several years ago and it's mainly for paper collage of bits and pieces.
It's a small but fat sample book from Marco's Papers. I guess we can call it a repurposed book. I plan to add stamps and stencils to paper collaged pages. I covered front and back today
using a photocopy of a collage I did in Traci Bautista's class. As Traci says, "always leverage your art". She photocopies everything and uses over and over.
Here's to a glorious 2014!
