StencilGirl Blog Hop Featuring Seth Apter

If you are arriving from my friend, Mary's Blog, you made it to the end of the HOP!

Today we are talking Seth Apter and his new stencil designs for StencilGirl! Let me tell you...these are some FUN stencils to play with and PLAY I did! I had no intention of a end result--just experimenting. Layers and layers of it! I used all three of Seth's stencils in this piece along with one other Eddy Rose by Mary Beth Shaw.


Before you leave, make sure you leave a comment to be entered to win the stencils that StencilGirl Talk is giving away :)
