Stencil Girl and Eileen Hull Designs, Week Long Blog Hop-Day 4


                               
Day 4

Today is MY day to share!

Welcome! This is a long post, so go grab a cup of coffee, tea or soda and enjoy!

But first, I want to say Thank you to Eileen Hull, Stencil Girl and Craffiti for having this wonderful blog hop! I am honored to be a part of such a talented group of Artists!


I came across this cute bag on clearance and thought I could make a one of a kind Art on the Go bag!   

                                           
I used Seth Apter's awesome stencils from Stencil Girl!
From Craffiti I used this Stamp "Barn Wood
From Eileen's collection from Sizzix's I used the Flowers, 3D #2 die
657118

I used Wendy Vecchi Archival inks. I asked Wendy if her inks worked on fabric and I was so excited she said "YES"!

I made my flower using Eileen Hull's Sizzix die, Flowers, 3D #2.
Using several cuts from muslin, I stitched them together and then applied ink to some of the petals. I immersed the whole flower into water and scrunched out the water and let dry overnight. once dry, I fluffed it up and stitched it to the bag.    

I wanted areas to have a torn or tattered look, so I stenciled onto random pieces of muslin and attached.
Here is another attached stenciled piece.
I stamped my "Barn Wood" image from Craffiti onto a separate piece of fabric. Then I stenciled over the top of  it with my Stencil Girl stencil. Using Wendy's inks, I wanted to make a pocket to put pens or pencils in, or maybe my cell phone.
I then stitched it onto the bag to make my pocket.

I continued to stencil all over my bag.

Creative Paperclay Play Day!




I went back to Minnesota for 3 weeks for some personal time. I had visits with my g-kids and my children. One night my oldest g-daughter and I decided to play. Out came the Creative Paperclay and off we went. Clara is so creative. I miss having her by my side creating.

We made some elephants. We then started to get geared up making some mini Halloween ornaments.

Please head over to Creative Paperclay blog and take a look.

We both goofed big time!

Eileen Hull-Sneak Peek of Vintage Kitchen


We are giving you a sneak peek of Eileen Hull's new dies!

OMG! You are going to LOVE them!





Each of the DT have different items to share with you! We all have our own style to share, that means you will be able to see how versatile these dies are! Each and every design is different.

These dies are not yet ready and will not be ready until a later date. But we wanted to show you what is coming, so you can start saving your money for these awesome dies!

So here is what I came up with for the dies that I received...............

I used the coffee mug as a gift card holder








 Same coffee mug......I made it into a very easy painted picture for the coffee lover!
Next, I use the spoon for a get well card


 I LOVE this next one......so many ways you could use this. It is a cookie box!

This next one is also a favorite...So cute!

It's a recipe box holder, perfect for gift giving!

I used mine as a small outdoor journal box with journal cards. I loved the way it turned out.







Each of my designs I happened to use Tim Holtz paper and Wendy Vecchi's archival inks.
Rub ons are also from Tim Holtz.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Remember these dies will be available at a later date and were just debuted at the Paper Art show. Look for these dies later this year. Check the other DT member blogs as they have different dies from what I have. You may just find more to put on your must have list. I know I have.
