StencilGirl THE BOOK Blog Hop!






Welcome to the Stencil Girl the BOOK Hop!!! 
So many techniques....what to pick??? Well it was no surprise that I wanted to do something with stitching. Truth be told, I was ready to fight Janet in Rock, Paper, Scissors style for the T-ease Me technique in the book if she picked it. The luck was in my favor and she picked something else so T-ease me it was!

I'm a huge fan of Alabama Chanin (which this technique reminded me of) so to do it with my own stencil design was a really exciting concept to me! Oh the possibilites!!! I picked Doodle It Daisy from StencilGirl and got to work. Now, of course, I can't give you all the details of my project....you will have to get a copy of the book yourself for that, but I will show you some process photos of my project along the way.


Now before you ask me if it was worth taking the time to put the tape around the stencil I'll tell you HECK YES! As a matter of fact I left it that way :)

Thanks for visiting today and if you make something with this technique from the book I would LOVE to see it!!!!

Did you visit the other blogs on the hop today????
