Hi friends and welcome to another fun week of Stencil Crush Tuesday.

This week I have a fun mixed media tutorial for all of you that I hope you will enjoy.  I am using lots and lots of Stencil Girl Stencils and below is the list of ones I am using as well as a link to find them :).  I am also using the Jane Davenport Face Stamps and some of her new paint markers and I have to say that I really do like them, well worth the price!

So grab a cup of coffee or your drink of choice and sit back and enjoy the tutorial for this week 🙂

Stencils Used in this weeks episode are:

By Gwen Lafleur:  Decorative Curvy Ornament , Decorative 6 Petal Flower, Decorative Filigree Repeating corner

Marybeth Shaw:  The Mini From the January 2017 Private Collection 17.1

Andrew Borloz: Heart home drop 6

Maria McGuire: Seeds, Live Your Beautiful Life

 

 

 

Painted pages on a budget

Recently a friend online asked about how to create pages without all the fancy stamps and stencils and products that they see me use.  So knowing that we all have other things in our lives that have to come first in our budgets I decided to create this video to share some ideas of things you can use and things that I do currently use that you probably already have laying around the house.

Hope you enjoy and wishing everyone a fabulous weekend ❤❤❤

Valentine’s Day Stencil Crush Tuesday™ 2/14

photo-feb-10-4-28-46-pm

Hi Everyone and Happy Valentine’s Day and of course welcome to this weeks Stencil Crush Tuesday Post so happy you are here!! 🙂

So most of you are probably thinking that I have this mushy “Love” project for all of you today for Stencil Crush Tuesday™ since it is falling on Valentine’s Day.  Well although I have to admit that I am without a doubt a true hopeless romantic that is not the kind of project I have in store for you today.  Instead I chose to share a few tips and tricks of mine using one of my great “art loves” Gelli Printing and 3 of my favorite stencils that I love for Gelli printing.

There are TONS of gelli printing videos out there for sure and all of them fabulous and I don’t pretend to be the “amazing Gelli Print” artist because I’m probably more of a novice after seeing what many others do, but one of the things I love to create Gelli Prints for is my art journal backgrounds, collage elements, embellishments and just because they are pure fun to make.  So this is my take on some “simple and fun” gelli printing with my favorite StencilGirl Stencils, I hope that it gives you some fun ideas and inspires you just to get out that gelli plate and have fun!! (there maybe a couple little added surprises in there , but you will have to watch and see 😉

Stencils used in todays video are:

Clustered Leaves – Cecilia Swatton

Fractured Glass – MaryBeth Shaw

Circles Circles – Traci Bautista

Just look at all these delicious Gelli Prints, Loving them all!!

Here are a few close ups of some of my favorite prints during this printing session.

All of these stencils can be found at StencilGirlProducts.com (and also if you click on any of the above they will take you directly to that stencil.)  Be sure to follow me on Instagram and Facebook as I will be sharing, in the weeks to come, projects I created using these beautiful gelli prints!

You can find past Stencil Crush Tuesday Video’s Here.  Also if you enjoy my videos please be sure to subscribe to my YouTube Channel and share the videos with your friends 🙂

Also a reminder we are only half way through the month for Feburary’s Art Stash Challenge on Instagram if you want to get in on the fun and be inspired you can join us here  and check out the details on this post here .  This month’s Prompt is FLORALS, super easy, super fun, so join in, be inspired and start creating using your “Stash”!!  Hope to see you over on Instagram creating!!

See you next week for Stencil Crush Tuesday 🙂

Much Peace and Love always!  xxoo Sherry

“Your Love is Precious

Don’t Forget to give it

to the most important

Person in your life…..

You”

-Sherry Canino

Stencil Crush Tuesday™ 1-31

img_8716

Hi Friends and welcome to another week of Stencil Crush Tuesday™.  This week when I started out I didn’t even have a slight idea in mind what I was going to create.  I of course had the stencils in front of me that I have been crushing on and had planned to use but this time not even a slight idea.  I pulled out a few stamps that I thought I might like to use as well and put them on the table in front of me.  Since my mind was completely blank as to what I would create I decided to use a gelli print I had in my stash to at least give me some direction with color – something to start with.  I enjoyed using some stamps that I haven’t used much and added some fun texture in a different way than the usual with a stencil and modeling paste.  So grab that coffee and lets get to it!

here are the links to the stencils used in today’s video:

Jessica Sporn Designs – Hearts Flowers and More (although this was not really part of the crush it was the background I used so want to be sure you can find it as it’s an amazingly beautiful stencil !!)

Terri Stegmiller – Heart and Grid Stencil

Carolyn Dube – Rembrandt’s Words Small Stencil

Here a few close ups and the final piece.

Yummy texture here:

Yummy drips

The quote says To Live a Creative Life, One must lose fear of being wrong

-Joseph Chilton Pearce

I love how the Rembrandt’s Word Stencil just gives it a bit of a vintage look
