The Crafters Workshop Mini Raven Mosaic Stencil~ This is a 6"x6" stencil for all your
mixed media and paper arts. They can be used in card making, scrapbooking. art journaling, sponging, spraying, chalking,
acrylics and more. I use them with my Gelatos by scribbling the Gelato over the stencil and then using a stencil brush
and work it in that way and works great. The Crafter's Workshop stencils are some of my favorite and a great bang for
your buck with so many designs on them. You can use all or part of any design, with one stencil you have many options.
This stencil was designed by Rebekah Meier.
Sorry for the picture, my skills at that have not improved over the years. It was always easier
to scan things. I was unable to find any cover for my Kindle Fire locally so I purchased a tablet cover in the office
supplies section of Walmart and adapted the inside with some hook and eye tape to hold the Kindle (I don't use the picture
function of it, but can easily remove from the Velcro when I want to). I also added some Foamie to the side opposite
so that the face of the Kindle would not be marred. I taped out the section I wanted to cover with Gesso, then I used
Gelatos and stencils to add texture to the piece. I used the stencil above in several places on it and I used the webbing,
crown and circle and some stripes. That is quickly becoming my go to stencil for all the choices. So, I like it
much better now and just another way you can incorporate stencils and your artwork into everyday life.

The Crafter's Workshop Mini Winged Exploration 6"x6"Stencil~This stencil is designed
by Gabrielle Pollacco. I think she did a fine job! I used the larger, 12x12, size of this stencil when I stenciled
the bag at the top of the page. I love this size for the stencils because I like to work with smaller ATC sized pieces
but this will also work for larger pieces too. This also has many items on it to use in your pieces. In my sample
above I used the dragonfly, but did not place the word dragonfly with it, I also used the drips from the butterfly wings alone,
so there are many options with the stencils. Sold per stencil.
The Crafter's Workshop Mini Geometric Art Layers 6"x6" Stencil~ This cool stencil was
designed by Ronda Palazzari. This has soooo much going for it, just about any design you could ask for. In other
stencil companies, it might take you 5 or 6 different stencils to get all the designs in this. You have numbers, x's,
triangles, bricks, some alphabet, circles and more. It is so nice to purchase one tool and have so many options with
The Crafter's Workshop Mini Harlequin Circles 6"x6" Stencil~ This stencil is designed
by Rebekah Meier. There is something about the harlequin design that I really like. As with the other stencils,
you also have a nice array of designs to use in your stenciling projects, harlequin design, circles, lines and more.
Stencils are compatible with so many different mediums that you could just never grow bored with the uses.
The Crafter's Workshop Mini Fifties Clock 6"x6" Stencil~
stencil was designed by Balzer Designs. I love geometric designs. I found that out in my years of rubberstamping.
I first started with kind of cute ones but then I found I always gravitated to geometric designs. I think there several
ways to use this to get a big bang for your buck. You have different sizes of ovals, use them in a circular fashion
or just use a leg of it.
Metal Stencil, Tall Poppy~ This was designed by Lynell Harlow. It measures 5 1/2" tall and 2" wide. This
stencil lends itself to many mediums also including acrylics, oils, watercolors, inks, chalks, sprays and more. To keep
a stencil from moving, get a painter's tape from the hardware store and use that to adhere the stencil to your project.
It then can be removed without hurting your project-great stuff. You can also use this stencil in several ways, using
just one flower or a bud, turn on it side and use the wavy stems, etc.
Dylusions Luscious Leaves 5"x8" Stencil~ This stencil
was designed by Dyan Reavely. It offers several different sizes of leaves and rectangles and I love the way
the rectangle starts smaller and gets larger. This stencil has been discontinued so get it while you can.
Dylusions Blocks, 5"x8" Stencil~ This stencil
is designed by Dyan Reavely. It offers assorted sizes and shapes of blocks. I really like the look of this one.
Some blocks are vertical and some horizontal.
Dylusions Chequered Dots 5"x8" Stencil~
This stencil is designed by Dyan Reavely. It has at least 8 different sizes of circles and assorted sizes of rectangles.
Add each design by itself -like 1 circle or use in a square of circles and the rectangles. I like the undulating line
of the rectangles.
Clarity Stencils Abstract Squares Stencil Set~ This is a set of 2 stencils, as shown
in the picture that has the pink on it. I added one with the back paper background so you can get a better feel of this
set. The measure 7x7 and are 350 micron-a heavy-duty, robust quality, which can handle any ink types but also acrylic
paints. This is according to their description. I am drawn to this set because I love geometric shapes.
You can use one block, all blocks or a certain other number in your art work. They also say these are great for stippling,
spongeing, spritzing and they are even paper embossable with most die cutting machines. I have a sample I made-just
a quickie, I just traced around the shapes, added some color and just stamped an eye onto it. You get 2 stencils, they
are packed with one on the front and one on the back- just so you know because at first glance, it just looks like one.

|Corrine's old journal inspiration
I think this old bookkeeping journal inspired me for these stencils. It had all the design on it, I painted some
gesso into a few squares and then used Gelatos and stencils to add the color and texture in it. This book was stained
so the paint was a welcome change.
