Lynn Krawczyk's new stencils! A Blog Hop and a give away!



I am happy to have been asked to help introduce Lynn Krawczyk as Artistcellar's newest Signature Series Artist. I was sent a set of her fabulous new stencils, "Marked", to experiment with. I will also be giving away one of these wonderful stencil sets! A randomly chosen winner from the comments to this post one week from today (on July 11th) will be sent a set of Lynn Krawczyk's "Marked" stencils. Please make sure to leave an email or someway that I can contact you, if you should be the winner.


First of all, I began playing with the stencils making mono prints and then embellished them further with pens and markers. Soon, I had a rather substantial pile of various colored collage sheets to work with. I plan to begin using these in my newest journal "Urban Ransom". The design of these stencils are just perfect for this journal.




These stencils are also perfect for using directly on the pages of my journal for back grounds.  I love the 6" X 6" size ... a very manageable size I might add.






And below a few journal pages in various states of completion -





The participants in this blog hop are listed by order of date posted and one lucky commenter on each post in the hop will win a set of Lynn’s new stencils! Please post comments on each and every post to increase your chances of winning!
