Stencil Test Drive Featuring Jessica Sporn's Bubble Girl

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





My canvas (12" x 12") didn't start out in a way that I would have thought. It actually started out as this blotter paper on my desk that I had been playing with a previous project on.


I had just laid down the stencil to play and see what the impression would look like on my blotter paper and one thing led to another and I ended up adhering the finished  art from my desk right on to the canvas. So...yes, sometimes just playing around turns into something more.
The frames you see in the background are Jessica's Frames stencil from StencilGirl. They were added in after the Bubble Girl was already stenciled.



The journey stamp is a old Making Memories travel stamp and the "I am a brave girl" stamp is from Melody Ross by Unity Stamp Company.

Now it is time to see what all the other artists did with Jessica's Bubble Girl Stencil from StencilGirl! But....before you go, make sure you leave a comment because Jessica is giving away one of her stencils and all of the comments left on the ENTIRE blog hop are eligible to win!

  5. I never would have thought to use the frames with this stencil, but it looks terrific. Thank you Maria - you always amaze me with your creative pairings. Love your canvas. The fact that it all started with the blotter paper makes it that much more amazing.

  8. I love that you used your blotter paper that your lovely "messies" were on.. I love using my art table papers for that.. came out great, Maria. The gold and the frames give it a "greek" fell. "bundt".
