Stencil Hop: Wedding Ring
April 26, 2012
It's stencil hop time, baby! I present to you four fantastically talented women:
- Michell LaPoint Rydell: Michelle runs the challenge blog "Scrapping the Music." Her colorful art journal pages and scrapbook pages are incredibly inspiring to me.
- Jenn Mason: Jenn is the editor of Cloth Paper Scissors Magazine. She is also the author of six books including Pockets, Pull-Outs, and Hiding Places and The Cardmaker's Workbook. Be sure to also check out her DVD Mixed Media Collage: Working in Layers.
- Valerie Mangan: My favorite guest post that has ever appeared on this blog is Valerie's post "Cookie Crafts for the Holidays." She is a talented paper crafter and baker and serves on the design teams for SRM Stickers, Elle's Studio, and Pebbles.
- Christine Urias: Christine is the creator of Scrap Time -- a video show (available on iTunes) full of techniques and product reviews. Recent videos have featured stencils, paint, PanPastels, embossing folders, and Ice Resin -- lots of cool artsy supplies.
These ladies are going to be showing off the Wedding Ring stencil:
Why is it called Wedding Ring? It's based on a traditional quilting design called "Wedding Ring."
But I wanted to find a way to make it my own, so I "Julie-d" it up with some cool tribal-esque patterns.
My first impulse with a stencil is to reach for the paint or the spray ink. But don't forget that you can use all of your favorite pens with your stencils too! I used a Sakura Pigma Micron to trace the stencil...
...and then colored part of it in with a Sakura Glaze Pen.
Doesn't the tracing just look so darn cool?!
You can also use a single circle of the Wedding Ring pattern, as in this layout:
You can watch the how-to in this video:
