Have you seen what Pokey Bolton is doing these days? No? Well you should keep an eye on this girl! She’s best known in the Quilting industry for her surface design and quilting. But she’s been branching out a bit…these are cut up file folders that Pokey used “coloring agents” on. Nice, right?

Note our lovely Cosmic Swirl and Cosmic Bubbles as it translates to fabric. pretty, pretty, pretty!!

 

Blending Inks with Stencils

Today I’m here to share an album by Ronda Pallazzari. If you haven’t seen Ronda’s amazing art, you’re totally missing out. What I love about Ronda’s work is that she uses our stencils to create beautifully colored and blended backgrounds.

Recently, she took a trip to Doha and created this wonderful mini album to create cross between a travel album and an art journal. Here’s a peek into some of her beautiful pages:

See how she uses multiple color mists in each page and the stencil makes it look like it’s blending from pink to orange to yellow? I also love the way the soft background and the black inks offset each other.

To see much more of Ronda’s album click here and if you haven’t used your stencils with multiple sprays to create this blending effect, give it a try! (and if you have, link us up in the comments so we can see!)

Ps: You have two more days to comment for last week’s give away. See you on Friday for another giveaway!
