I've added a photo album of my sister's visual journal there on the left. I'll be adding more pages in the coming days.
Lately I'm enjoying spraying my stencils on top of vintage ledger paper. I found 4, 1930's ledgers that came from a fire insurance company in Pittsburg a few weeks back. 26 bucks for a lifetime supply of ledger paper. A good bargain I thought. I love that buttery background underneath a flat black stencil.
I discovered scrapbook stores about a year ago. The variety and design of the paper is spectacular! Who knew? That's another perfect surface to layer a stencil over. I had been making mailart on book covers the last few months until someone sent me some mailart last week on scrapbook paper. Mailart is endlessly inspiring don't you think?
Someone hand me the glue! Toss me those scissors! Clear the area. I've got ideas rumbling around and a lot of them involve S.B.P.
The result of that rumbling will be landing in someone's mailbox this week.
Another fixation. Pen nibs and little glass wells of ink. I cleaned mine off and got a few bottles of new ink.
Do you have a minute? Good because I have a few links for you. Well on second thought, this is gonna take longer than a minute. Go grab your livliest cup of coffee or tea and a cat for the lap. You can thank me later.
Reverse applique stenciled t-shirt anyone? Hightail it over HERE to Alabama Chanin. Plenty of fabulosity all under one roof. Start in the projects and keep clicking those red arrows. Their blog is fun too.
Next go see COG & PEARL
Katie Muth has some must see prints.
Finally, have you checked out INGRID'S visual journal lately?
Nope, not done yet. I hear Etsy calling your name. AMY STONER has stolen my heart. Can someone go pick it up for me? And while you're at it I'll take 8-10 of her pieces. No gift wrap necessary.
