Random Squares


Stencil Girl Products has just released a new line of stencils designed by Jessica Sporn. To celebrate the release, Jessica has invited a group of artists to take her stencils on a "test drive."

BWS tips button

It started in December and continues through June 2013. Once or twice a month we will show you how we have used her stencils and you are invited to play along too. Today is my day and I got to play with Random Squares.


Make a pit stop today at Jessica's blog, where you can read more about the project and today's postings, as well as be part of a stencil giveaway. You can also stop by and see Kristin Dudish, Corrine Gilman, Carolyn Dube, and Diana Trout, each of whom also took Random Squares out for a test drive. 


I used the Random Squares stencil to create a fun background for a loose page that I will bind together with other pages to create a playful journal in a bit of a unique size for me.

I always love to see how different artists use the exact same starting point and create a result that is uniquely theirs !
Great texture and very "Seth" looking !

Adding the crackle was a nice touch. I love the mixture of color and age.
