This was all during my blackout period (no, not as in drinking, as in no blogging...) and while I did take a few minutes to try them all (how could I not!!), I totally spaced about sharing them. When I went up to the art room to fling some glue and paint just now, there they are, sitting on my desk. Patiently. Enticingly. Encouragingly.
I did remember to thank Diana (and co-sponsor Sue Bleiweiss and Artist Cellar Stencils) for the 28, yes 28!, stencils (retail value $120) and here they are....used on my ICAD index cards because that's what was handy and I figured I could put them on a ring to remember what each one looked like. They are packed 4 themed stencils to a set which I tried to scan together....
This last one actually made it onto a journal page....I love the start of this page.
It's almost too much of a good thing - which one do I try first? How do I keep them accessible and remember to that I have this wealth of background-making, pattern-making goodies waiting? I should have more such problems, right? :)
Again, thanks to Diana and Sue - I see a big flurry of arty activity in my future! :)
