Stencil Girl and Xyron Blog Hop- Halloween Tag Mini Vid Class today!

Stencils are super versatile and I was so excited that we were teaming up with Stencil Girl! I got the Net Stencil designed by owner Mary Beth Shaw, however if you check out Stencil Girl you will see tons of amazing stencils created by Artists from all areas of art- that means there is a style for everyone. Even though my Stencil was a Net- the first thing I saw in it was Alligator skin. So I decided to use a technique that made the stencil look more alligator-y; embossing. Here are the tags I designed and at the end you will find a Mini Video Class including the technique for gluing over a stencil! Have fun making all those Halloween Projects and don't forget to HOP over to:

{look at that fabulous black embossed alligator skin!}

{I like to emboss over patterned papers to give that extra depth- embossing over a small pattern works best}
