When two of your fave companies team up, amazing happens! All week StencilGirl and Clearsnap have swapped products and the teams are hopping. Get inspired and enter to win some sweet crafty artsy swag!!! I decided to create a mini book with ink and stencils only – there's no patterned paper, at all!
Here's what I created:
This entire mini album is decorated with just ink and stencils – isn't that cool? There are a few embellishments and all of the paper pieces are scraps. I wondered, could I do the entire book with no patterned paper or paint? Well, I did it!! I made this paper bag book base from paper lunch sacks and canvas duck cloth fabric.
And here's how I decorated the pages of this book:
The beauty of investing in things like stencils, stamp wheels, and inkpads is that they are reusable. Other than reinking once in a while, stamp pads are pretty much a long term tool. Unlike brads and paper and glitter, these tools can be used over and over for a variety of projects.
After Halloween, I'll use the owl stencil to make a Thanksgiving project or to create a fun owl themed tote bag. Instead of building a stash of consumables (papers, buttons, and things that get used up), get tools!
