Stencil Girl guest blogger

The lovely ladies of Stencil Girls asked me to be a guest blogger this week, and I’m excited to share my post with you!

You can find the full tutorial for this super fun wooden box HERE on their site. Check it out- their stencils rock and I had a lot of fun creating this special project. I love layering paints and inks and this really was a joy to create from a simple $1 wooden box.

Have a wonderfully creative weekend!

Crafty Fall Foxes with ScanNCut DX

Do you make time for creative play? In my experience this is a vital component. Now it doesn’t have to be big or fancy! It could simply be putting some ink to paper, playing in a journal, or doodling on scrap paper.

Stamped watercolor mixed media tags: moon faces

When I look at these circle faces I think of the moon, and today I let that inspire me as I created a pair of tags with these new Dina Wakley stamps. Supplies used/affiliate links are listed below. What was the inspiration? I wanted to play with some texture on my tag and adding stamping and color while the tag was still wet.
