Summer 2013: Mix Tape, And So On, & Squiggles

Ronda Palazzari Mix Tape TCW 401

Hello, it’s Ronda! I am here againt today to introduce you to more of my NEW STENCIL RELEASES!  Over the next few months I will be sharing with you my 19 new designs with The Crafter’s Workshop!  So far i have shared with you  Fancy Feathers & Giraffe Print and Climbing Vine & Moroccan Tiles.  All stencils are available for wholesale purchasing right now and will hit the stores soon.

Mix Tape is a throw back to my 80s high school days.  Big Hair, Leg Warmers, Stirrup Pants, and Mix Tapes.  I loved all the different styles & colors of those tapes so I included them in my collection here.

Ronda Palazzari Mix Tape Stencil

Like all Crafter’s Workshop Stencils they come in both 12×12″ and 6×6″ sizes.  Here are a few examples using both sizes.

For a Rocking good time, I started with a waterproof black pen on watercolor paper.  I then created a whole sheet of cassette tapes and painted them with watercolors.  I picked a few tapes out to use on my layout.

Ronda Palazzari Let's Party Card

I loved the look of these tapes so much I used one on a card.  These would make great party invitations (modern or retro)!  Also great for Birthday wishes, Valentine’s Day, and so on!

Ronda Palazzari And So On TCW383

Who doesn’t love bold graphic statments.  I confess I have a love of symbols, especially Ampersands.  The Pie Chart comes from my previous stencil and just wanting open spaces for versatility.  The “at” symbol is a constant image in our cyber space world.  There is just something so happy about it.

These fill a 6×6″ space on the the 12×12″ stencil give you a nice large option.  On the 6×6″ stencil they measure a little under 3″. Here are so samples using both sizes.

For this layout I used light modeling paste & black acrylic paint through the 12×12″ stencil to create that large ampersand.  I then cut it out and placed it next to my photo.

Using the 6×6″ stencil & watercolors, I painted the pie charts all around the page.  I popped up some of the pie pieces in various colors.

I used the other ampersand on this Mixed Media clipboard using the 6x”6″ stencil.  I love the way it sits in the background but still creates an impact with this piece.

Ronda Palazzari Squiggles TCW398

Squiggles is one of those fun background stencils you’ll find yourself using over & over again.  I love the thick mountains and valleys that can be reimagined in so many ways.

Ronda Palazzari Squiggle Stencil

Like all Crafter’s Workshop Stencils they come in both 12×12″ and 6×6″ sizes.  Here are a few examples using both sizes.

I broke out my gelli printing plate for this layout.  I did some images & reverse images on deli paper using the 12×12″ size.  You should see the stack of colors I now have in my hands!  I picked a few to layer on this layout and I totally love how it turned out.

Ronda Palazzari And Many Thanks Card

I used the 6×6″ size on this card with some distress inks.  I had a small strip of the yellow deli paper print and thought it balanced the card.  I added the small ampersand from And So On onto the thanks card and finished it with some twine.

On this Art journal page, I used more of the deli paper gelli prints.  This time I cut the squiggles print out in the shape of a heart.  Did you notice the Moroccan Stencil spray painted on the background or the yellow squiggles placed around the page?  I had another small ampersand left over and thought it would finish the page nicely.

Are you heading to Create-n-Connec next week?  I will be there at the Crafter’s Workshop Booth (# 608) creating make & takes with you at the following times:
