WOOT WOOT!! Welcome to the StencilGirl blog hop to welcome NEW StencilGirl Artist Traci Bautista! I am over the moon excited for Traci's stencils! I have long admired her work and our paths have crossed several times over the years. She is a gorgeous artist and person, inside and out, and I am so excited that now you can get her stencils to put a ltitle mixed media magic on your own art journals, canvases, and more. You know how I am getting my scrapbook action back on lately, so I thought, let's get all “mixed media” with this stencil and make some MAGIC happen! What I love about the Floral 2 stencil that I received from Traci's collection is that it has a bold, almost Latin feeling design, that I used to achieve a glow effect on this scrapbook page:

Xaver and I had a crazy crazy crazy night out in Las Vegas and I wanted the stencil pattern to stand out in black against the page. I imagined silhouettes of signs on the Las Vegas strip casting shadows in front of the lights shimmering behind them. To create this look, I started with black cardstock and used paint, ink, and pens to create the “lights” shimmering behind the stencil.
