StencilGirl Blog Hop & Giveaways

Kemperjournal08092013

This is a heavy stencil week for me!  Today I'm participating in a blog hop featuring stencils designed by June Pfaff Daley… my assignment was to work with June's coral stencil.  It's a bold 9X12 design:

965

I had so many ‘under the sea' thoughts but no images to match them.  Then I remembered this floating fairy girl (Stamps Happen) and it seemed like she would work.  I stenciled with green paints and inks onto a dictionary page, tore my edges and added it to an ‘in the works' journal page.

Being a wise-aker, I added the word “CanonBall!” to it even though it appears she's making a much more gentle entry into the water.  Behind the dictionary page, I used MaryBeth Shaw's Web Stencil with white paint on the blue background.

Thanks for the visit!  If we're not already connected, please sign up for my newsletter or find me on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, or Pinterest.

    What a great way to use the stencil Marjie! I like the word cannonball, but when I look at it I prefer to think of myself floating around under the water where no one can find me :) You made me think of hiding under water when I was a kid :)
