Embellishing with Stencils

Yesterday I made a bunch of these…********and am giving four of them away, see below********…

Stenciled FlowerUsing parts of the Cup of Joe Stencil by Jamie Fingal

764You know how I love my French Roast….

Anyway, I thought, okay, where will I use these..how about as a embellishment on my new journal cover….

Journal CoverWhich I made using lots of collage and this stencil –Quatrefoil Mix by Michelle Ward

898Maybe it would look good here or maybe on the bag I made out of leftover stenciled fabric using the Andrew Borloz  Crossed Rounds and Squares

bag with flower




Or maybe I should just give them away to some friends?  I can always make more…..********Tiny giveaway – four of these flowers .  Leave a comment on this post for one chance to win.
