Citrus Twist Kits is teaming with The Crafter's Workshop this month for a blog hop and giveaways. Together, we are celebrating the launch of Citrus Twist Kit's Design Girl, Jen Boumis' Life Bits stencils. Today's post is using Julie Fei-Fan Balzer "Days of the Week Bit" which unfortunately i don't have in my possession. However i do have her other life bits like the "Number Bits" and the "Two Leaves Bits". In addition i also used Jen Boumis' Note to Self Life Bits.
The blog hop began September 9th, and continued on Mondays and Wednesdays in September with today being the last day. Each day of the blog hop when you leave a comment or love for the participating designers on their individual blogs and end your hop by leaving a comment on the Citrus Twist Kits blog, you'll be entered into a drawing for a free Life Bits stencil.
i wanted to show how these bits can be used on anything so i used the "Number Bits" as my focal point on my art journal page. I love the way the color surrounds this bit with the white gesso page showing through the numbers. I didn't want it perfect and love how it has that grunginess to it. After adding a bit more color on the page, i used the "Two Leaves Bit" and traced around the shape. The hallowed out look really appeals to me. After tracing the "Note to Self," i added my journaling and a bit of black spatter around the page. I hope you have been inspired by these hops and found lots of ways to use them in your work.
Now it's time to hop on over to....
