Hi, Dina here…I’m happy to share with you two of my new stencil designs!
First…Chevron Tiles. I have a love for all things chevron. Add my love of all things mosaic, and you get this mash-up. The stencil is super versatile and easy to use.
Can you spot both the small and large versions on this layout?
Next up, Four Ferns. I am going to get two of the large size of this stencil, one to keep intact and one to cut apart the four ferns. I’ve been slightly obsessed with this one, putting it on everything!
I can’t wait to see what you make!
I’m back with two more Dina Wakley stencils.
First, we have Star Fall. I love stars almost as much as I love hearts. When my fellas were small, I would always tell them, “Be the star you are!” So stars are a meaningful motif to me in many ways.
I love a stencil that has a strong directionality (did I just make up that word? heh). Sometimes it’s nice to be able to guide the eye in your composition, and a stencil that is linear is great for that. Striped Leaves gives you that linear quality and also just looks cool.
Enjoy and happy stenciling!
Greetings from hot Arizona! I’m here to share another of of my new stencil designs. This one is Grungy Hearts.
Those of you who have had classes from me know I love hearts. Hearts just make me happy. I wanted a heart that was messy and imperfect, so this stencil was born!
Can you also spot Halftone Borders on this page? It has Grungy Hearts in the background, and a Grungy Heart that I cut out and glued on.
Yay for hearts! I can’t wait to see what you make!
Howdy, I’m back to share a couple more of my new stencil designs.
This one is Halftone Borders. What can I say, I still have a thing for dots! I went a little crazy with this one and a can of spray paint. You’ll probably be able to spot it on lots of my projects, I was adding it everywhere. It’s a great accent.
This is a gelatin print with spray paint on the top. Easy & fun!
To go along with Halftone Borders, we have Halftone Circles. Yep, more dots! The gradation in size is fun to play with, for sure.
To make this background, I used a dry paint brush and acrylic paint.
Enjoy and happy stenciling!
Dina here again with three more stencils from my new release. First up, Roman Letters! This is another stencil that comes from photographs from my travels. Great for backgrounds!
Next, another travel-inspired stencil, Mosaic.
On this scrapbook page, I combined both Roman Letters and Mosaic!
Last I have Sunray. So many possibilities…it makes me happy.
Lots of creative possibilities abound…I cannot wait to see what you create!
Dina here, with another one of my new stencil designs! This time it’s an eye chart…fun, yes?
For this scrapbook page, I just used the Eye Chart stencil and ink spray…simple & fast.
I used ink spray and the stencil for this art journal page background, too. I also used a dry brush and acrylic paint with the stencil on the central collage piece.
Are your creative wheels turning with ideas? I can’t wait to see what you do!
Howdy, I’m back with another new stencil design. As a reminder, all of these new designs will unveil at the winter CHA tradeshow, in mid-January. This is “Vine.”
Here are a couple of scrapbook pages I made with Vine. On the page below, I used it with Dylusions Ink Sprays to make a background. Can you also spot it on the turquoise “ribbon” paper? That is a gelli print that I made and then cut up.
You have seen the page below, because I shared it when we talked about the Church Windows stencil. Can you spot the Vine? I sprayed through the vine on some cardstock, then cut it out and layered it on.
Happy Christmas Eve…I hope you get lots of stencils in your stocking!
Hi friends, Dina here! I have been wanting to do silhouette masks for a couple of years…thanks to The Crafter’s Workshop, they are here! I love cutting silhouettes from magazines, but have found they don’t last long. Even if I coat them with paint or gesso, they eventually disintegrate. Once I cut a silhouette, I get attached to it and I love to use it over and over! These masks are made from the same durable material as all TCW stencils are, and can withstand any mixed-media abuse you throw at them.
The silhouettes will come in both 12×12 and 6×6 sheets. Some have 2 figures and one has 3 figures. 7 figures in all. I’ve been using them like crazy, and I know you will love them! They are part of my January 2013 release at Winter CHA. Can you sense my excitement? Yay!!
Hope you love them as much as I do,
I’m excited to introduce my new Church Windows stencil, which will be available at January 2013′s CHA trade show. This stencil is inspired by my travels. I love to visit old churches and always take pictures of the spectacular stained-glass windows. I designed this stencil from photographs that I took of windows in England, Italy, and Spain.
I can’t wait to see the art you create with this stencil! You can see more of my work on my website and blog.
