When I was invited to try out the Groove from Art-C for the blog hop with StencilGirl, I didn’t know what to expect. I must admit I was a bit skeptical and wondered if it was something for me. Turns out, it is exactly the kind of thing I like to use. It’s easy to use and it makes stenciling go faster!
Be sure to check out the giveaway details for this blog hop at the end of this post!
In the video, I’m searching for just the right word as I experiment and play with The Groove…the tool worked great but my mind just couldn’t find the exact word I was looking for…it escaped me big time! What was that word? Dry brushing. Okay…two words.

The sanding attachment actually got me to sand. I say actually because I have a drawer full of sandpaper that I never use. It’s even right next to me but I never use it.
The bright white was just too bright white for me so the sanding attachment came to the rescue by adding a bit of aging to the white circles. Funny thing is I never would have reached for the sandpaper as a solution but I will be now!
