You know I LOVE circles and this is just fabulous! The punch of orange is just PERFECT!!!!
Wow! Such a great effect with so little stuff! I agree that the orange punches are perfect.
Love the colours of your page and the stencils look like lots of fun…
Orange is the new BLACK! And my favorite color so punching it up with the pink – simply heaven. Great idea with little product required — loved the idea – thanks for sharing.
I love how quick and easy you can work on a page with a stencil and acrylic paints!
Love your video and journal page!
Love the circles with the writing!! 🙂
Fun page and I love the journal words within the circles. Plus pink and orange!! And glitter! Oh my 🙂

I SO love your playfulness when you’re arting…just so much fun!
You inspire me to just “play” with my pages! Love your fun page!
Traci is such an amazing, creative spirit. I’m lucky to say that she lives in the bay area and have taken a few classes with her or just run into her at some of the local shops. I think her stencils have really unique potential, which is hard to find in the ever-expanding stencil arena.
Love that scribble stencil!! Your work is so fun to watch. I art journal in a similar fashion! Have a super duper day! – Kari
