Diamond Waves


Today it all about Diamond Waves from Carolyn! I have to say this page is the most "ME" from this week! Red, black, gold....yes me! I totally loved how it came out. 
As a matter of fact this is another one where I just was so mad at myself for not starting it on a canvas.


 GIVEAWAY one stencil to 3 lucky winners. 
**GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED**
How do you win? Just leave me a comment on each of my posts this week. The more posts you comment on...the more entries you will have (one per post please). I will leave the commenting open until Monday, February 10th @ 11:59PM Central Standard Time.

What do I want you to comment on?? 
Well, remember here, I'm doing these posts for
 INSPIRATION 
with the stencils. 
The giveaway is nice, but I like to share different ideas for the stencils and hope that they inspire you along the way. Please let me know your thoughts on my piece of work.

Here is a little "bonus" background I did in my journal with Carolyn's Linked stencil. 



Thanks for stopping by!
I hope you liked this week of stencil inspiration!

I post the 3 winners back on this post Tuesday, February 11th.

  2. I, too, love the black dots. Did you use a 3-D fabric-type paint like Scribbles?

  14. Just love staring at both of these. I peeked in earlier today, but came back now because I have the time to both leave comments on all the work you've so generously shared and to ooh and aah over these beautiful pieces.

  16. I love this one! You gravitate toward the coolest colour combos- I would be shy of those deep reds, but I think it's time to give it a go! What medium did you use for your gold? I love how it looks! And however did you do those perfect dots? again, Maria- very inspiring! ")

  17. Hi Jackie,
    The gold is just gold acrylic paint. The dots....long time papercrafter, LOTS of practice :)
    Thanks for stopping by!

  18. Are my eyes playing tricks or are the Diamond Waves in 2 different sizes. The black and gold appear to be smaller to me. But then again, your reds look more purple on my screen. Need to do some color correction. Anyway, absolutely love the first one as a finished piece and the second one as a great background for added fun. Thanks again.

  22. Oh my gosh, I love the color combinations and how you used Carolyn's wave stencil in the different ways and different directions. The final product is stunning.
