Terelisa made a series of 6 atc coins. “I was inspired by the colors of autumn, my favorite season. The pinwheels make me think of the wind, changes, life opportunities to be taken on the fly. I used Faber-Castell Gelatos, Tim Holtz Cargo, Wildflower Layering Stencils and Simon’s Exclusive Diamond Circles and Gingham Stencils”

Andrea made mini-notebooks using some of her all-time favorite stencils: Dina Wakley’s Funky Silhouettes and Spaced Dots, Tim Holtz’s Stars, and Darkroom Door’s Large Mesh.  She added fun sentiments and decorative elements from Inky Antics’ Muse News stamp set.

Anna-Karin made a mixed media canvas for a friend, using a whole lot of stencils. There are stencils by Dina Wakley, such as the Halves one, and stencils by Tim Holtz, such as his Linen stencil, and SSS exclusive stencils, including the Medium Dots.

Barbara loves so much to use stencils! She created an Etcetera tag using new Tim Holtz Shifters Mini Stencil set 36, Tim Holtz stencil Batground, Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Webs & Damask CMS276 and a lot of Tim Holtz Idea-ology products

Cheiron used alcohol inks, alcohol lift ink re-inker and mini foam blending tools along with some of her favorite stencils including: Floral, Thatched, and Mini Stencil Set 29 to great her vibrant background.

Emma is thinking ahead to Halloween and created a piece of home decor using a Small Etcetera tag from Tim Holtz. She used two stencils to add texture and detail to her project, applying Grit Paste through the Crossed Mini Layering Stencil directly onto the tag and then blended ink through the Harlequin Shifter Stencil to add pattern to the background of the stamped image.

Kath created a nature theme page in her Dylusions Art Journal using Idea-ology Halloween Collage Paper and Tim Holtz Stripes and Diamond Layering Shifter Stencils and Mini Layering Stencils from Set 5 and Set 8 to create soft colour and detail on the background.

Lols made a simple birthday card using Tim Holtz  Grid Dot, Dot Fade and Splatters Layering Stencils along with Peacock Feathers, Dusty Concord and Mustard Seed Distress Oxide Inks. She then splattered with Lapis Mica, Gold Shimmer, Black Marble Shimmer, and Polished Jade Ink Sprays. She used a Simon’s Exclusive Big Happy Die and finished with a few Studio Katia March Crystals.


Macarena made a girly card using TCW Small Organic Matter mask, TCW Small Specimens template, Tim Holtz Splotches stencil and one additional made with Tim Holtz Sizzix Mixed Media 6 dies.

Maura  was inspired by Gwen LaFleur’s stencils to create an art journal page. She used Gwen’s Stencil Girl Boho Birds, Boho Mandala Circle, Art Deco Peacock Feathers, and Art Deco Flower Medallion Repeating Corner. 

Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media art journal page with Tim Holtz Layering Stencil Mosaic, Harlequin and Simon Says Stencil Leafy Frame Sending Sunshine for the patterns on the background.

Sandra picked three stencils for her card, Numbered, Bubble and Schoolhouse. The Numbered stencil she used with Distress Paint Black Soot, GoPress Grey Foil and Bonding Powder

Zoey used two of her favorite stencils Tim Holtz Mini stencil set 33 and Tim Holtz Layering Stencil Stitches. She also used a very snarky quote from the Snarky Stickers by Tim Holtz.
