crafters workshop | stencil blog hop

my sweet friend julie, who is an amazing art journaling queen and an incredible inky goddess has been busy designing some stencils for crafters workshop over the past year and asked me a few months ago if i would like to join in a little blog hop to celebrate her new partnership. yes please.


i received the cloud stencils, which i adored from the minute i saw it. i’ve been experimenting with folk art over the last few months and decided to make a little hanging cloud piece with some scrap linen that i hand in my stash. to start i cut two pieces of linen and painted each using the cloud stencil. i made sure to flip my stencil over on the second piece of linen so that my cloud “bubbles” would match when i sewed the piece together.

once sewn i stuffed it with some batting and then sanded the paint for a worn and primitive look. i added some linen patches and hung some crystal “raindrops” from the bottom of the could with some florist wire.

make sure that you check out the other artists that are particpiating today in the hop, and thanks to julie and CW for asking me to join them.
