I use art to process emotions and feelings but sometimes I get stuck. That’s when having a prompt helps me get moving again. Gelli prints and my new Verbage stencil to the rescue!
This stencil, packed with words of action to celebrate the emotions and excitement of life, is a great way to create prompt cards. And I’m giving one away to celebrate my latest release at StencilGirl!
Watch Using a Stencil to Create Journal Prompts on YouTube.
*Just to clarify, Verbage is not to be confused with verbiage. Verbiage is a real word. Verbage is a slang term that refers to a big list of verbs like on this stencil.

You know Carolyn, this week I was playing with ATCs and when I looked at your page and I saw in it immediately some more options for ATC, guess I am going to continue 🙂
Love this stencil. Love your work. You inspire me. Thanks!
Another great stencil….keep them coming!
Love the ideas of gelli art index cards and the stenciled words to prompt journaling.
Love all the layering!!
I absolutely love watching your videos. You always have such great ideas. Even in an oops. Hope you and your family have a super Thanksgiving . May God bless you all.

Great idea! I love the gelli printed journal cards.
Great stencil. So versatile. I don’t always like to write a lot in my journal. A single word sometimes says it all for me. Lots of options here.
Another winner, and I placed an order with Stencil Girl just yesterday! That’s OK, I’m sure I’ll order again sometime…LOL. LOVE your videos, Carolyn!
I also posted to Facebook and Pinterest!
This is a wonderful video. i just watch the wonderful video. Great ideas. It would be a wonderful one for my Rolodex Cards A Day.
Thanks for sharing.
Thanks for the chance to win another great stencil. I like the idea of prepping large sheets of paper and then cutting down to smaller sizes.
And of course I pinned this one too!
What a great idea! Not only is it a great idea for your gelli prints but it does provide inspiration

Love your word stencils. So many uses for them.
I just love you. You always make me laugh. I have been down lately and I always can go watch one of your videos on you tube and feel so much better. Thanks and thanks for giving me the chance to win I don’t have any word stencils yet!!!!
Really like the verbs.
Love these little prompt cards! The basic black just works on those Gelli prints. Cool.
Hi Carolyn – I have been under a rock for over a year now. Lately I am trying to catch up with what I missed (a lot!) and I’m glad to see you still creating and going on strong! I will check out your former posts to see what you are all up to – from this post alone I think I might come across some amazing art pieces and inspiration again. I can use that! Oh, and I would love to win the stencil to try and get my mojo flowing again… Have a great weekend beautiful one!
Another great stencil!!
Verbage – I love the word!!
I just love your word stencils!
Cutting up gelli pulls used to kill me, but now I cut, tear with random abandonment, all thanks to you. And this is yet another perfect way to use them. Great word stencils, Carolyn! !!
Thank you for making this stencil. I think we’ve needed something like this for a long time and I love how it allows me to create the saying I want. Over and over again. Very versatile! Thanks also for the opportunity to win one!
I am in love with this stencil. 😉
Wow! You got my creative juices flowing on this one. I’m going to get my gelli plate out and prepare some backgrounds…. with the hope that I will win this stencil. 🙂
I love this stencil!
Thanks for the chance to win!
Still working on my lettering skills, so love your word stencils to use instead of my own handwriting.
Carolyn, you are the queen of word stencils. LOve them all. Would be so much fun to create a journal page with this stencil. Thanks,
another great stencil and fun technique.
Love this idea Carol. So fresh and fun. What a great way to use the Gelli Print papers. I do the Journal52 prompts and we are on Prompt 47. I’ve done all of them and just love it. My flickr address is: https://www.flickr.com/photos/seaslay/sets/72157644718435363/
I love to stencil and would love some of your stencils. Cheers Cecilia
This is fabulous! Love the stencil and love your technique! I get a lot of ideas on using this stencil! Thanks for sharing and inspring!
I was thinking these word stencils were a bit limited, until now. You opened my eyes to the possibilities. Thanks!
Word to play with and think about – love it.
Another excellent stencil – so useful for journaling
Two great stencils..I’ll take them if you are giving them away!
I am again inspired by your creativity. Thanks
Carolyn, this one is INSPIRED!!!
diy prompts — how cool is that?
The ancient English Lit major loves words, can’t get enough of them. Hope I have a chance at this. Hint, hint
This could be my favorite of your new ones. The mind boggles at the potential uses. Wish me luck in winning this one …. seriously!
Thanks for the definition. Being new to all this I am amazed at the different kinds of stencils and can just imagine how fun they will be.
Not used to using words in my work, but i like the versatility and options.
I love how bold this is. Would be great on any journal page.
I like this one, I love writing so this would be fun to make 🙂 thanks
