Stencil Test Drive with Jessica Sporn's Hands Stencil from StencilGirl

Welcome to the Jessica Sporn's Stencil Test Drive
 Featuring her Hands stencil from StencilGirl!


My Art Journal Page


I have to say...this stencil is a little addicting! I actually started not one but THREE projects all at the same time with this stencil. I'll be showing them at a later point. I finally decided on showing you this one today. No "in process" photos but I do have a photo of how the background started. Tissue and paint that = texture :)


I used a piece of paper that I had made with my Gelli Plate and traced and cut out the hands. The words down the middle are stamping done on more tissue and glued down. This is an old stamp and I'm not sure who made it. The stamp with the bird and truth is from Melody Ross for Unity. Some hand lettering and I called it done! 
Fun, easy and I love the results. 
This is a super versatile stencil with lots of possibilities!
