I'm featured on the StencilGirl Talk blog today, with loads of step-out photos and details about this art journal page.  I used Tim Holtz's Sizzix dies, Ranger Inks, Golden Paints, Xyron adhesives, and of course… StencilGirl stencils!Kemperjournal09012013

On a different note, I am teaching in 3 different states this month!   You can find all my teaching details right here:  Marjie Kemper Classes. I'd  really love it if you subscribed to my newsletter and my YouTube channel.

Thanks so much for the visit.  Please pop on over to StencilGirl to see the project details.


PS – Linking to Simon Says Stamp this week – my take on their current challenge is to include stencils with stamping – and to Art Journal Every Day.

    I love this! Those leaves look awesome & I like the “white space”/less work on the inside of the border. 3 different states?! Wow – that must be a lot of driving for you!! Enjoy :)

    Very nice job, Marjie. I wish I lived closer to you so I could take a class. Darn. Maybe you will come to the pacific northwest sometime.

    Hi Marjie! I clicked on the stencil girl link you provided but I think it may be a broken or incorrect link. Anyway, I love your journal piece. Very cool color combinations! Love the leaves! The black edging and cardstock inside really makes those colors pop even more! Love it! Thanks for sharing your art with us at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. <3 Candy

    Well, girl…I told you to get ready for a full schedule…your star is rising! Glad I don’t have to do all that traveling; I’m a Hobbit at heart…I love hearth and home. But I would love to be able to magically transport myself to one of your classes. I know you are a fabulous instructor. These stenciled leaves remind me of a leafy glade…respite from the summer’s heat with just the hint of autumn coming on. They are wonderful!

  26. Julie Tucker-Wolek on September 4, 2013 at 8:03 am

    This is gorgeous!!! I loveeeeeee the colors and those leaves!!!!

  27. Mary Elizabeth on September 4, 2013 at 7:34 am

    Absolutely gorgeous Marjie!! I love the colors and the mixture of text with the leaves for your background. Just beautiful! Pinned!!!– Mary Elizabeth

  28. Astrid on September 4, 2013 at 2:17 am

    This looks fabulous, rich and autumnal with those beautiful leaves. Specially love the look of that central panel. Off to take a closer look…
