StencilGirl Blog Hop


House stencil designed by me for StencilGirl Products and Welcome to the Blog Hop!
Bali Snaps - precuts from Hoffman California Fabrics.  The perfect size for stencils

Bright and beautiful colors to choose from

I lined them up on my design table, and fused them with Mistyfuse, so they are all ready to go

Stenciling with acrylic paint, using a paint brush.  I did a bunch, so that I would have plenty of fabrics for a variety of projects

The first project is a group of prayer flags, that are 2-sided, so they look great from both sides, hanging.  The houses were fused to the cotton fabric, and then sewn across the top block of each house square back to back.  The fabric is all raw edge. Ribbon was sewn over the top, so they could hang easily

I think they look lovely hanging in my garden

The other view

It will be fun to see how they hold up through the elements of sun, rain and birds
A small art quilt using 3 of the house stencils, 2 with Cup of Joe and the flowers and leaves stencil

 'Welcome Home' door hanger - could be a great gift!

A jar in my studio needed a little extra fun, so I decoupaged houses on both sides.

Party vases using old jars. Fabric decoupaged to jars, both sides, with matte medium.  Pretty fun!  Here is the list of artists in the The StencilGirl Blog Hop.  StencilGirl will be giving a way this House stencil.  All you have to do is make sure to comment on as many blogs as you want.

  5. Now this is one amazing array of ideas Jamie! Thanks for sharing all of your terrific ideas for using the Stencil Girls products and the tips for applying the cute hose prints to "SNAPS" from Bali Batiks for a variety of very cool studio and home decor items. I would make a few cards for welcome home greetings for friends away or in hospital... and some great coasters for cottages and gatherings like our SAQA meetings where everyone has a glass to set on someones furniture and pass them along as a hostess gift!

  17. Jamie,
    Fun uses for your house stencil. Love the door knob hanger and the 2 sided prayer flags. Let's see...how could I use this cute stencil? I know! How about stenciling on paper for wrapping paper or a collage, or stenciling on a plain pillow case/sham, bed or sofa! Or stencil on fabric for a doggie pillow/bed or for a cat quilt! Too much fun!
