Mixed Media Stencils

Join me for an art journal tutorial using Stencilgirl Stencils and products from Lindy's Stamp Gang!

I'm creating a journal page using Roxanne Coble's stencils but using some really bold and bright colours instead. I had a lot of fun getting into some old skool embossing and doddling in lot's of details.

I'm sharing my top four tips on how to use comparisonitis to your advantage and turn this negative feeling into a positive one instead!
