Welcome to Stencil-a-Palooza! Several days a week for the next month or so I'll be featuring one of my eighteen stencil designs for The Crafter's Workshop! Each post comes with a giveaway. Leave a comment answering the question-of-the-day and you might be the winner of that day's featured stencil in both 6x6 and 12x12! Comments will remain open on this post for seventy-two hours. The winner will be announced after that. In the meantime, if you'd like to purchase any of the stencils there are many in-person and online shops to choose from. See a complete list here.

I sent these girls both of the "word" templates. Yesterday's TCW217 Trust Your Heart:
As for me, I'm going to show off some ideas for "If You Believe."
Like yesterday's word stencil, this one is also a mask. I was inspired to make it after painting this painting:
I used it in my art journal:
I also used the Fragmented Flower and Punchinella stencils on this layout (to create the center area's background).
I always try to do something to make my layouts "special." A little extra touch that someone else might not have thought of. On this layout I took a leftover flower I had glittered for another project and I made two little tags and linked them all together with embroidery floss.
Here are the samples from the video:
Which of the projects from the hop is closest to your personal art-making style?
Just a reminder: To be eligible to win, you must post your comment in the comment section of this blog post. You cannot post on Facebook or by replying to the e-mail (if you subscribe) in your inbox. The reason for this is that I pick a winner via "random number generator" so I need a single list of comments.
Thanks for stopping by! Now get hopping!
