I'm very excited to report that my StenDoodle technique is being profiled on an amazing blog out of Australia - called Sparkle Tart! Not only does the site have an amazing name, but it is owned by Kate Palmer - an amazing mixed media artist and crafter. I hope some of you know who she is. If not, you must - must - must go over to her site and check it out. Heck, just subscribe. You will not be disappointed.
To go along with the Sparkle Tart post, I made a "Home Decor" project for my blog too - a StenDoodled Vase and Flowers. This is an idea that has been festering in my head for months now. I own so many flower dies by Memory Box that they needed a vase to go into. And it has to be StenDoodled!
Hope you like!
Step by Step:
1. Since I do not have a stencil for a vase (believe it or not), I drew one on a piece of cardboard, used it as a stencil and traced it on a piece of cardstock with a pencil and cut out. You can do the same or use a vase stencil if you have one. Then place the Intersections Small stencil over the vase and trace the areas you want to use - with a pencil and then with a black fine tip Sharpie.
