...Blazonry stencil by Balzer Designs.
Oh, yes I do. I use it all. the. time. Like on this page...
...and this one.
And it's all over my art journal, too.
I've always wanted to try paper piecing with this stencil and finally took the time last week to try it out. I traced the pod shape on some patterned papers from Dear Lizzy's 5th & Frolic and Maggie Holmes' collection. I used both the 12x12 ad 6x6 Blazonry stencils. I also added some stitching with my sewing machine.
Then I grouped the papers together and layered them up.
And, of course, some Studio Calico Clay splats and a few other embellishments.
And here's the final page.
I love how many different looks I can get from one stencil. And the paper piecing was both a lot fun and a lot of work. I don't think I'll do it all the time but I know I'll do it again.
Thanks for stopping by!
