StencilGirl and Inchie Arts A Great Combination!


Welcome to the StencilGirl and Inchie Arts Blog Hop! If you came from the StencilGirl Talk blog you are on the right track. If not, look at the end of this post to find the list.
StencilGirl and Inchie Arts are the perfect combination! I just loved working with the products from Inchie Arts.


How about starting a doodle?? 
Trace your stencil onto your Art Square as a start and then embellish to your hearts content!
 
Here I used three of my designs from StencilGirl: 


I have so many uses for these! I could put them in my journals, on the cover of a journal, make a handmade card and use as an embellishment....I could go on and on!




How about embellishing a pre-made journal cover with a faux tile effect??

I used my Butterfly stencil from StencilGirl along with the 
1" squares from Inchie Arts
A little look at my process is above.

How about making my own journal and using the ATC size Art Squares as my covers with a coptic stitch?? FUN! 
I made my covers with the same process as above using the Doodle It Layered Circles and Squares and Doodle It Geometric Landscape Stencils from StencilGirl.


Of course I do have a perfect stencil to go along with products from Inchie Arts! 
Doodle It Inchie

I'm saving that to show you another day!
A big thank you to StencilGirl and Inchie Arts!
Loved playing along!


Stencils Used: Doodle It Bigger,  Doodle It Geometric Landscape, Butterfly, Stitch a Doily, Doodle It Layered Circles and Squares, and Teardrop Doily
