This month, i will be debuting my new Ronda Palazzari Designs/The Crafter's Workshop stencils. I am so excited to share with you these new releases, including 14 new stencils & 10 brand new "Ronda's Fragments." These new little masks pack a punch, perfect for art journaling, gelli prints, tags, project life, scrapbooking, cards, & much much more. i have been working hard to bring you creative inspiration along with new videos! Today's stencils are HourGlass (TCW 429) and Cafe Latte (TCW 434).
i love a good background stencil. Really LOVE. i find them so versatile. This hourglass stencil is such a cool pattern and can be used for so many different projects. Think bowties or pinwheels. It's one you will use over and over again. What is great about this stencil is that it can be turned to complete the square shape.
The petite 6x6 size is so completely adorable. On the left tag, i sponged black paint over the the colorful background. Love it in that bold black! On the right tag, i turned the stencil to complete the box shape.
The 12 x 12 design is about an inch per square. On the left tag, i sponged two paints through the stencil. On the right, i stamped the reverse which ends up being the same as if you would turn the stencil.
On this layout i used the 12x12 stencil to create a neutral backdrop for my color photos. i used watercolor crayons in grey tones and painted them with the stencil in place. i did the light grey triangles first and then rotated the stencil a quarter to paint the dark grey triangles. i love how the triangles have fluid edges and the crayons create depth in each piece. i could see doing the whole background like this!
On this art journal page, i used the 6x6 hourglass stencil with some molding paste (or modeling paste). I love the feel of this page with those bright yellow/orange spots combined with the cool greens & blues. You might even spot a stencil fragment on this page ;)
Cafe Latte is such a fun hand drawn stencil. Whether you're a tea or coffee person, you are sure to love this stencil. It's great for cards, tags, scrapbook pages, project life pockets, or art journal pages. You can use the shadow, outline, or both to create. Of course we need accoutrements to our drinks, so i just had to include the coffee beans, tea bags, and steam!
i wanted you to see the 6x6 & 12x12 stencils next to one another to get a feel for their size. i used both the shadow & outline for these tags. How cute would it be to attach a gift certificate to the back of the tag as little gift for that special friend?
It's no secret i am a tea drinker. i usually start with a cup of english breakfast in the morning. i might have another one of those or a cup of chai in the afternoon. At night, i love a mint tea or a green tea. As you can see, a cup of tea is always nearby!
