{Stencil Sunday} MariLynn Creates A Tag Art Album

Happy Sunday, STAMPlorations friends! It's time for another helping of stencil inspiration. You'll get to see projects that show off how to creatively use ARTplorations stencils. And each month, we'll pick one winner of a $15 gift code -- the winner will be drawn from all comments left on the Stencil Sunday posts for the month, as well as from the designers' blogs.

STAMPgirl MariLynn played with 3 ARTplorations stencils to create beautiful backgrounds that look like designer paper...and turned those backgrounds into a tag art album!


Hi, MariLynn here to share what I made with ARTplorations Stencils. I used Happy FlowersFlourishes, and Onion in Raws.

I water colored two pieces on white cardstock. I did one with orange /yellow flowers and one with purple flowers. Two colors that I don't use enough. So I challenged myself to create with those colors. I splattered with blue paint to give it that extra artist look, that is super easy to do. I also put aqua glimmer over the flowers to add some sparkle. 

Then I did the hardest part and that was to cut the two pieces. Anyone who hoards designer paper will understand that part. So hard to cut into a pretty piece of paper. I used CUTplorations Tag O' Coffee die.

After I die cut all these tags, I tied them together with twine to make the little art album. I plan on using it with my bible journaling and I plan to write scripture on the cards. 


Aren't those some gorgeous backgrounds? For a chance to win a $15 gift code to the STAMPlorations store, leave a comment here and on MariLynn's blog by January 8. We'll announce the winner in the December winners post on January 10.
