Alison played with her Tim Holtz Layering Stencils to alter the outside of one of her art journals.  Lots of different media went through the stencils – Distress Inks with Embossing Powder, PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylic Paints, and some Prima Marketing Plaster Paste.  It’s finished off with some Quote Chips to encourage more journalling adventures.  It’s worth a trip over to her Words and Pictures Blog, to see the full spread of front and back covers together.

Andrea used embossing paste and stencils (American Crafts’ All the Good Things and Altenew’s Halftone) to add texture to her tags.  She added some birds from AALL & Create’s Quirky Birds stamp set for a whimsical touch.

Anna-Karin made an art journal page using stencils together with Paper Artsy’s Infusions. The main stencil is Finding Your Tribe by Carolyn Dube / StencilGirl and she also used the Starlight Mini stencil.

Barbara has created a sea theme canvas using Tim Holtz Stencil Dotted and Stone, Idea-ology Found relatives , Tim Holtz Satmpers Anonymous Mail Art and Sizzix Mixed Media 3.

Cheiron created a tag using some of her favorite colors and Tim Holtz’s Stitches and Roses Layering Stencils to create a fun background. She added a Paper Doll and a sentiment she made combining Tim Holtz Sizzix Shadow Script 3 dies and Clippings stickers.

Emma designed a vacation themed project and has used Tim Holtz’s Speckles and Dotted Layering Stencils to create a stencilled background on her Etcetera tag. She decorated the tag using the Seashells die and added a Paper Doll to complete the scene.

Kath used Tim Holtz Trellis Layering Stencil and Mini Layering Stencils from Set 20 and Set 22 to decorate the background and Tim Holtz/Sizzix Feather Duo and Butterfly Duo chipboard die cuts on her Summer Garden Canvas.

Lols made a springtime card featuring Simon’s Exclusive new Stitching Butterflies Die Set. For the background she used Tim Holtz Cargo, Floral and Dot Fade Layering Stencils along with Distress Inks and White Embossing Paste

Macarena went into the whole background stencil and built it with TCW Mini Woven stencil and Mother of Pearl Nuvo Mousse. For the focal point she chose Sizzix Layered Butterfly die and colored it with Distress Oxide Inks. She added some Idea-ology metal details like Pen Nibs and a cute Index Clips.

Maura made a Thinking of You card with Simon Says Stamp’s Beautiful Day set and Butterflies stencil, along with some Distress Oxide inks such as Mermaid Lagoon and Picked Raspberry.


Meihsia created an art journal page with stenciled background using Tim Holtz Mini Stencil Set 3 and decorated it with Idea-Ology Quote Token.

Sandra loves using stencils for her projects, like the Tiles stencil is one of her favorite, and she used that one with Texture Paste. Another favorite is the School House stencil regular size and the small one that comes in a set, both she used with Distress Paint Black Soot.

Zoey used The Crafter’s Workshop Small Brick to create a background for her tag. She also used Tim Holtz Idea Ology Paper Dolls and Finetec Mica Watercolor Pearlescent to color it

So now it’s YOUR turn to get out your inks, paints and all things arty and start creating! We are looking forward to seeing what you make!
