Why special edition you might ask...well keep reading.
I have tried starting this post about 10 times now...not sure what to write or show.
Grateful for the honor of designing my very own stencils for StencilGirl, grateful for StencilGirl and Mary Beth Shaw and grateful for having a friend who wanted so VERY badly to do this post today. But then again she is a STENCIL JUNKIE and would jump at the chance to use any stencil she cold get her hands on :)
OKAY...no more trying...here we go!
I designed my very OWN stencils for StencilGirl
and I am SO excited I cannot contain myself!!!!!!!
I cannot put into words the emotions I am feeling--seriously NO words.
This first one is called Stitch a Greek Medallion and is available now on the StencilGirl Products website.
It has deep meaning for me.
My heritage, my faith and my family.
There are personal stories for each ring. One I will share is the significance of the ring of leaves. It is a reminder to me of my marriage, the crowns that are put on our heads in a Greek Wedding ceremony and that day 26 years ago. My poor Irish husband having to walk around in circles with those crowns on his head is a moment I will never forget and cherish.
You may have seen this project a few weeks ago on StencilGirl Talk.
It is what I intended with the stencil--to show you that stencils can be used as a pattern for your embroidery projects.
But it can also be used in so many ways....like in this Art Journal page I made. Yes, if you look close you might see some sneak peeks in the background :)
Now PLEASE go over to Carolyn's Blog and see what she made--in true Artsy Fartsy form we refuse to see what the other has made until it goes live, but I do know that that rule was almost broken last night...she is very excited!
As a matter of fact I'll go with you! I cannot wait to see what she made!
Thanks for stopping by today!
I truly appreciate each and every person that comes by to pay me a visit!
I'm also over at the StencilGirl Talk Blog today with the
AUGUST StencilClub reveal and a project!
Stop by and say HI!
