Stencil Girl ~ Experimenting With Leaves

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.


Your comments are very much appreciated!

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

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

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