StencilGirl Stencil Test Drive...Doors & Windows by Jessica Sporn

Welcome to another Stencil Test Drive with StencilGirl Stencils designed by Jessica Sporn. This time we are using the brand new Doors and Windows Stencil
I just LOVE it!
This Test Drive is a very special one to me because I get to share it with some woman who I think are just awesome and mean alot to me. Please also visit their blogs to see what they did with the stencil:

When I sat down to use this stencil I knew I loved it but had no idea of what to make so I just played. I stenciled, I sprayed, I traced and about everything else I could think of. I had a big mess in front of me but no project. I kept playing and playing and what started out to be one project grew into 5 journal pages. YES, I LOVE this stencil. Today I will show you two of the projects and then I'll show the others soon.

A door....what's on the other side??
that' will have to wait until another day for me to show you...if you look in the background you will see another one of Jessica's stencils that I will be Test Driving soon.

 On to project two!
This one was a mess many times over. It was actually three smaller projects that I kept screwing up--adding and adding and hating then loving. I decided to put them all together on one page and add the title. Now I love it!
It has MANY, MANY layers :) Hard to see in the photos put the stenciling was done with Molding Past and then colored gold.
There in the middle you can see a left over from one of my other Test Drive's with Jessica's Medieval Leaf Motif Stencil.

Thanks to Jessica and StencilGirl (Mary Beth Shaw) for having me be part of another stencil drive! 

Now go see what everyone else made :)


  1. I see we liked the same door and had the cut out idea - how interesting is that! Love how you used the medieval stencil as a medallion - great idea....wonderful words and so true. Looking forward to the other pages.....xox

  2. LOVE these beautiful works of art Maria! Love, love, love!

  3. What a wonderful color palette you chose -- totally adds to the mystery of the door! Can't wait to see what's behind it! As always, your work comes right from your soul. Love it and thank you!

  4. Maria..this reminds me of the doorways into some secret clubs in a place like Boston. The brick walls, the dark colors... oooooooo very cool. Love driving with you.

  5. Gorgeous pages, Maria Love the brick walls and your big lettering.... fabulous!

  6. Both are great but I like the one you said was a "mess" the most. I want to walk through one of those doors.

  7. Hi, Maria! Carolyn sent me over to see what you created with Jessica's windows and doors stencil--and isn't it just great?! I love both works, but the second is my favorite! I especially like this one because the door is much like those on very old homes in New England. Then, I love that you gave the doors to your stories a touch of gold, indicating the importance you assign to them! Way to go!
