Art Journaling & Stenciling
Video Tutorials & Inspiration

Here is a post showing all in one place three videos demonstrating various techniques for ways to use the new stencils I’ve designed for StencilGirl Products®. Following the videos is a grid gallery of inspirational images that have used the stencils. If you haven’t checked out the post just before this, you won’t want to miss the step-by-step process of painting a vintage style book cover.

The first video shows how to make a mixed media art journal page using my new 6×6″ & 4×4″ Spirit Wind and Spirit Swirl stencils by StencilGirl Products (shown at bottom of post), acrylic paint, collage, and Washi tape.

See how to build a basic landscape in an art journal using stencils in this video. Scroll down for links to stencils.
