TCW229 Rain
30 Days in Your Journal: What Do I Need?

Clouds TCW230

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 (including my own little online shop).  See a complete list here.

Today I've got a stencil hop with seven stunningly talented ladies:

With so much talent, I couldn't just send these ladies one stencil.  I had to send them two stencils!  They got TCW229 Rain (which I talked about yesterday)...

...and TCW230 Clouds (which I'm going to cover today)!

When I designed the Clouds stencil I wanted something very stylized with a lot of open space.  Why the open space?  For funky filling, of course!

Here's a card where I filled the clouds with doodles:

I got the idea to do the doodling in the clouds after creating this (unfinished) art journal page:

You can see that I also used the Rain Stencil for doodled drops in three sizes!

Here's a spread in my art journal where I filled the clouds with patterns from other stencils:

And see the two tags on this layout?

I stamped inside of the stenciled image. 

Stamps and stencils go together really well!  Watch the video to see how I put the tags together:

Of course, you don't have to fill the clouds.  They're lovely just as clouds! 

I had fun using the Clouds Stencil to create a dream like background in my art journal:

You can see that I also used the Henna Hands stencil here.

And I know I've shared this next inspiration duo before, but I still love them!  Making this art journal page background...

...inspired me to create this scrapbook page:

And does that journaling spot look familiar?  It should!  It's a cloud turned on its side!  I'm always looking for fun journaling shapes and I simply traced a cloud shape onto white cardstock and cut it out to create the fun shaped journaling card you see!

And finally, here's an adventurous tag:

To win both the 6x6 and 12x12 versions of the Clouds Stencil, answer the Question of the Day:

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.
