I never get tired of seeing how people use our TCW207 Birds of a Feather stencil and Kerry from Australia totally hit it out of the park on this one. (And it doesn’t help that the colors she used are my absolute favorite ones…inspired from The Color Room’s Palette #136 (click to see more layouts using our stencils!) . Beautiful!!
Great stuff on the Aussie Scrap Source website. Although they only sell to retailers shops, they have wonderful ideas and extraordinary designers. Here’s what was written about the above piece:
“Jill combined both the good and the bad that has been 2012 into a canvas featuring the Prima Craftsman papers and note cards, and the Crafters Workshop ‘Flower Garden’ template. Collaging the canvas and then layering paints, ink and mists over the template, incorporating autobiographical elements into your artwork is easy to do – not to mention therapeutic!”
“As you probably already know The Crafters Workshop templates are a creative favourite for Louise. For this particular layout Louise has created an ‘embossed’ like pattern on her background, using the template, texture paste and gesso. The pattern of the template has been highlighted by the subtle use of Tattered Angels chalkboard glimmer mist behind and around the photo.”
April Lopez is our winner!! She posted on our Facebook page: “Garden Gate”. Congrats April!!!!!!!!!
Help! We can’t think of a good name for this new stencil. Can you?? If we choose yourname, we will send you a 6×6 and 12×12 of this very special design (after February 1st when they’re all in stock!!) Post your comments here.
If you already posted your answer on Facebook, then that counts. No need to post again. Thanks for all the great ideas!!!
Maria Schmidt calls this layout: Mutter und Tochter. I read the translation and it appears that daughters across the Atlantic make their mothers just as crazy as they do here in the US. Glad to hear I’m not alone.
TCW236 Wood Grain
Maria used our TCW236 Wood Grain stencil to give texture to her layout. You can read (or translate) her blog here.
Every December, Ali Edwards creates an album just for December. She highlights this process in her “December Daily” blog. This year she’s getting a lot simpler by using a 4×6 Album. And, lucky us, she used our TCW246 Swiss Dot stencil to create one of her transparency pages using cream colored acrylic paint.
Doesn’t this just look delicious? Yes, you need all of those colors. And yes, you need their Sofft applicators (don’t cheap-out and think you can get away with some flimsy make-up sponge. You can’t!!) After you wish for all of our stencils, add PanPastels to your wishlist this holiday season.
We received a lovely email from Wilma who has many of our stencils, even though she’s off in Switzerland. Far, far away from TCW Headquarters!! I like how she used our TCW191 Bricks stencils with molding paste and paint.
I also like how she found a way to make a layout that is trendy and masculine. I’ve often heard the complaint that it’s hard to find inspiring layouts for boys and men. Well here you go! It doesn’t get more masculine than this!! Thanks Wilma!!
I just discovered Christy’s blog. It is wonderful. Look at this pretty card. Now look at the white area where the “hello” is…IT’S EMBOSSED!! I know, so simple, yet so WOW!! Here’s a close up of her embossing (there’s a whole tutorial on her blog):
She has everything including some great step-by-step photos on her blog. So I won’t bore you by reposting it here. But in case you’re curious, here is the little stencil (Flower Garden TCW275) that she used…
