Fabulous Mail!

Recently, I was the lucky, really LUCKY winner of a giveaway on Margaret Applin's blog. Not only did I win this book, Stencil Girl by Mary Beth Shaw but I also got to choose 3 of Margaret's stencils....yup, any 3 I liked. (it was a tough choice) The package arrived in the mail today and WOW! this is absolutely the BEST kind of mail!


These stencils are terrific and I can hardly wait to try some of the many fabulous techniques, this is not your average book about stenciling....not by a long shot. It is a full sized, gorgeous publication, beautifully laid out with outstanding photos, instructions and GREAT inspiration.


There are 20 contributing artists covering such an array of ways to use stencils in your art....it is making my head spin. We are talking stencils and paint....sure, but also wax, bleach, wood, fabric, metal, glitter, paper...even cake decorating......I say it is time to PLAY!!!!!

Congratulations! Isn't it fun to win something especially when it's right up your alley which this looks like it is. The mixed media reminds me, have you ever heard of life book 2013 and now 2014? It's a year long mixed media class of sorts and I've been thinking of joining. It's pricey - alittle over a hundred bucks but sounds like it would be fun. Just wondering if you had any thoughts yay or nay on it.

I love stencils and have just recently (due to you) started using them for the base of my zen doodles. I'm in love with this. I do use them for other stuff too of course but this was new and so exciting.
