New stencils from Dina Wakley: Chevron Tiles and Four Ferns

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!

New Dina Wakley Stencils: Star Fall and Striped Leaves

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.

New Dina Wakley Stencil: Grungy Hearts

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!

Two more new Dina Wakley stencils: Halftone Borders and Halftone Circles

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.

Cyndi’s Project {Stenciled} Life

Hi this is Cyndi aka “The Scrappy Chick” here with you today to share a Project Life layout.  I am thrilled to be guest blogging for The Crafter’s Workshop!  Thanks Jaime for inviting me!

I thought it would be fun to do my pics from a recent Trade Show that I attended where I finally got to meet Jaime in person!  Here’s the double spread:PL-whole

For this panel I sprayed randomly through an assortment of TCW stencils ( Subway, Pie Chart, and Eye Chart all in 6×6) with Dylusions ink sprays and then dabbed black paint through the 6×6 Casey and Penelope stencil so I would have a blank black canvas on which to add journaling.


This panel (as well as the last) is done on Mixed Media paper.  I dabbed Picked Raspberry Distress paint through the Church Windows stencil and then sprayed Vibrant Turquoise Dylusions through a part of the Urban Landscape stencil (I masked the words off with painters tape)  I later added a piece of turquoise cardstock stenciled with Thursday from the Weekly Circles stencil.


A few of my panels I sprayed Dylusions onto colored cardstock pieces to see what would happen and I love the result!  Fun slightly more subtle colors!  For this one I used the Subway and Urban Landscapes stencils again.PL3

Back to the Mixed Media paper for this one (this stuff is so thick and amazing!  Jaime turned me on to using this as backgrounds for my stenciling during the class she taught.  It’s great to spray large pieces and then cut them up for the sizes needed!  Since Project Life offers so may different sizes in the various configurations this is perfect!PL6

On this one I sprayed through the Eye Chart stencil again for a bit of texture under the Cityscape stencil that was done using black paint.PL4

Finally for this one I had sprayed a large piece of green cardstock with the larger 12×12 Cityscape Stencil and it turned out to be perfect to matte a photo onto!PL5
