StencilGirl Blog Hop Featuring Pam Carriker

Welcome to the StencilGirl Blog Hop featuring StencilGirl Artist Pam Carriker! If you have arrived from Leslie's Blog you are on the right track. If not, you can follow the list below and start from the beginning.

I am a huge fan of Pam Carriker's artwork! Her deep rich colors and attention to detail make me sit and look at her Art Journal pages in amazement! I am also lucky enough to know Pam in person and work with her through StencilGirl which makes it even better.

While at Art Is You in Nashville this past year Carolyn and I took a class from Pam. One of the side projects was a cool folded watercolor journal. We didn't have time in class to do much to it except make it but I have since added to it and thought it would be a perfect project to show you today since not only did I use ALL of Pam's color wheels in it, I also used quite a few of Pam's other stencils. Am I done with my journal? NO! I could keep adding and adding....
You can see all of Pam's StencilGirl stencils HERE.

  46. I don't know how I did it but somehow I missed your blog as I hopped along on Friday. But am I ever glad I discovered my misstep. I LOVE how you've used Pam's stencils. So many things pulled me in - the vibrant colours, the use of the grid, the amazingly creative way you've extended the stencils beyond the original design. Great job!!
