I am so grateful that Terri Stegmiller designs such simple and graphic stencils, which of course she uses brilliantly to make her art quilts, stunning bags, and all manner of fiber goodness. Yes I have a girl crush. I am also grateful that she decided to create stencils for StencilGirl, which I can use in my own projects.
Grateful, that I’m in this hop and that I can make something with the Layered Salad stencil to make a bag as a gift for a friend who is a weaver and knitter. I started with a canvas bag which I purchased and gelli printed on it with acrylic paint using Nathalie Kalbach’s What’s the Point stencil and Mary Beth Shaw’s Refter’s stencil to give it a background, then laid down the Layered Salad stencil with masking tape here…
Using my uni-posca markers I colored in the layered salad, which looks to me like a flower garden in bloom.
The markers worked fine but the stencil needed some definition so I got out my pearl floss and began making a frame to go around my flower garden. French knots, satin stich and some ribbon braid trim around the bottom.
Be sure to visit everyone on the hop for a chance to win. There will be some amazing projects I know, I will be hopping right along with you. I am so grateful to be on this team and work with such inspiring artists and I am so grateful to all of you for visiting and commenting and making us feel so appreciated.
Heres the awesome list :
