Artistcellar's Pocket Stencils!!

Artistcellar has developed a series of stencils called "Pocket Stencils!"  I am so in love with these little gems, and want MORE designs to come out in this size.   I was looking for something just like this as I tend to use parts and bits of stencils instead of the whole stencil.  That is for patterns - BUT - I wanted tons of words too, and these words are fabulous!!

These are sold in the sets listed below, the set coming with a binder ring to keep your stencils all together and organized!  Just flip and use the one you'd like.

*  Mini Steampunk
* Create-Believe-Trust-Seek
* Mini Virtues
* Faith-Hope-Charity-Grace
* Chakras

There was a blog hop which I am coming in at the tail end because I was dealing with kidney stones and a kidney infection......

IT's NOT TOO LATE - Comment Below and Win a Set of these Stencils!!!!

The above piece was created with the spirit within.  I so love what all religions offer and inspiration that comes from quotes.

I used a stenciled piece I had that was done with one of the other fabulous Artistcellar stencils, then added to the design.  The word "seek" was raised using embossing paste.  other words stenciled.  The background paper from BoBunny's Summer Line expresses the idea of growth and transformation through the representation of butterflies.  A Buddha was also collaged.  Many mixed media techniques utilized to express what I wanted to design.

I did one more art piece that clearly shows one of the Chakra stencils and how beautiful they look.

I was so excited when these stencils were revealed, even if you do not use them directly for what they were made for, the designs fit so many themes!  I am off to play more with my stencils.
