I love getting new toys in the mail- especially stencils and especially circles- they make my heart sing right now! This one is by Julie Balzer. I just wanted to play- no purpose, no pressure- just play. But playing can lead to problems- and I ended up with a huge problem thanks to this stencil.
Started with a background I made long ago.
Next I stamped the coordinating circle stamp by Impression Obsession all over the page with blue ink.
Grabbed some of my current favorite colors and started stenciling acrylic paint into the circles. I was sloppy. I was messy. I was having fun, until…
The problem you say? I love how the stencil itself looks and I want to use the stencil in a journal page as an element. But if I do that, then I don’t have the stencil anymore to use as a stencil. Oh, the struggle. Oh, the rough road I travel. Oh, feel my pain!
