Designing stencils is another dream come true for me. It was amazing to start creating something knowing that my designs would be manufactured (and a bit nerve-wracking too.) And then i had to wait. The time from turning in designs to having the actual product in my hands felt like forever and a day. Then giddiness bubbled out of me as i tore, literally, tore the box open and began spraying immediately. anything lying around was fair game. funny how the pups suddenly skedaddled from the room. here's a secret too...
this Becoming layout was one of those first trial tests. The vanilla cardstock was laying on my table so it immediately needed to be sprayed with my stencil. I liked it so much i turned it into my layout.
but i digress.
CHA came and all my stencils were released. They started shipping to the stores and soon they were in the hands of some very creative people. and here's where my dorky side kicks in. Well, kicks in more than usual. tears came to my eyes seeing people creating with them. Unbelievable creations. here are a few of the latest i spotted.
here's one i never saw coming: Cookies made from a stencil! and i LOVE it. i wonder did Carolyn (who is uber talented) look at this stencil and think "boy this urban landscape looks good enough to eat?"
Sherry got her hands on my 6x6 pie chart stencil with her February Cocoa Daisy Kit Subscription. I love the layers on her pie chart, mixing spray ink, paper, embossing powder, and embellishments. So very cool. Check out her blog post for more details on how she created the layers.
Marjie, stamper extraordinaire, created this beautiful tag using my 6x6 kaleidoscope stencil. I love how it sits in the background against the yellow. And that corrugated piece is to die for! She takes you through her creative process on her blog post so make sure you stop by.
With all these beautiful creations popping up, i decided to create a Ronda Palazzari Designs flickr group. I would love it if you would share your "Ronda Palazzari Designs" there. It brings me great joy seeing your creativity!
