I always have my journal turned to two blank pages when I'm doing a lot of stenciling on other projects, this way I don't waste any of my inks. These two pages were evidently test pages to see what color of Turquoise I had in the bottle and then a blast of Bubblegum Pink found its way there too. I wiped a Balzer Silhouette Script stencil with Angel Pink irRESISTibles off on it at a later date. At this point it doesn't look like much of anything to most people but when I look at it I see ball gowns.
After choosing my background in my journal I went back to my Master Board stash and found a piece of paper that I worked on a couple of weeks ago. I cut three tags out of this, smeared a glob of gesso in the center of each tag, stamped some of Dina Wakley's faces on it and a corset stamp that I got for free in the new Craft Stampers magazine and Voila! I was ready to play.
After their ball gowns were drawn on I added another lady tag to the mix. I began just writing a little story randomly around the ladies, put crowns on them and gave one some flowers. It didn't seem bold enough for my taste so I pulled out some more stencils, these are by Tamara Laporte and are called Tam's Inspiration. In this series of word stencils you'll find inspirational words written in Tam's lettering style. I used Black StazOn ink with a sponge dauber to stencil these words onto my pages: believe, stardust and you matter.
My message on Tuesdays is always the same, get your stencils out and play with them in all sorts of different ways. You'll be glad you did, I know I always am. Take care, see you next Tuesday! Hugs, Renee xx
