Artsy Fartsy is BACK...with StencilGirl Stencils

Yes, it has been a while, but Artsy Fartsy Friendly Fun is BACK. Carolyn and I took a small break to attend to life but we couldn't wait to get back to creating together. If you are new to Artsy Fartsy you can catch up HERE.

From the moment Carolyn and I set our eyes on these stencils designed by Sue Pelletier from StencilGirl we KNEW we had to have them and NOW
Mission accomplished when we were at Art Is You in Nashville.
Don't know what Art Is You is??? You can find out about the retreat HERE.

So what were our 3 products for this Artsy Fartsy??
  • A Stencil by Sue Pelletier from StencilGirl
  • Plaster (we couldn't make a project without it when thinking of Sue)
  • Oil Pastels--why?? I have NO idea
 My canvas is 16" x 20". I started out really not knowing what I was going to make and just played. Here is a little progression of my canvas along the way.

I can't wait to see what Carolyn did with these products (we always keep it a secret until it goes live). 
Come on over to her Blog to see with me.
