Stencil Girl Blog Feature: Cornish Petals

When I was asked if I wanted to participate in a Blog Feature using Stencil Girl stencils, it took me about 2 seconds to decide that would be such fun! Stencils, paint, and doodling? YES, PLEASE!

I chose 2 stencils :

Cornish Petals screamed Mail Art to me. I grabbed a piece of Bristol paper and applied a background of acrylic paints.

Taping down the stencil with painters tape held it in place for crisp lines as I pounced several colors of acrylic paint through the stencil.

Loving how these colors are blending right through the stencil making peacock feather like colors. This is totally lickable!

I grabbed a circle punch and punched out five circles out of a scrap of painted paper. Then I cut 2 wave like strips of painted paper to add to the other end of my project. Since this is mail art, this piece will be folded in half and I wanted interesting elements on both sides.

Now, my favorite part, adding doodling to pop the elements off the page!

Adding texture with my sewing machine is a go-to technique for me.

A label for an address was stitched on and well as return address label and I am calling this DONE!

What fun! Join me for Part 2 -HERE
