Stencil Saturday and a WIP Art Journal


Happy Saturday my friends!  I am so excited that it's the weekend, and that it's Stencil Saturday!!  Here is the page we worked on last Saturday on Ustream.


I bought this REALLY cool book last weekend which has 400 word and phrase stickers.  I got it on clearance for $5, but you can find it here on Amazon.  It's called Sticker Nation.  LOVE


If you are new, Stencil Saturday is a free, live class every Saturday night at 9:30pm EST where I teach a different technique using The Crafter's Workshop stencils.  I hope you will come join us HERE!


If you missed out on the live class, here is the recorded video:



Yesterday a few of my friends were talking about UFO's (unfinished objects) and WIP's (works in process).  This is a huge subject for me as I have MANY unfinished pages, in multiple stages.  Recently I have learned to not worry too much about finishing each and every page, it's all about the process.

Here are a few pages that are in one of my handmade watercolor journals.  The journal has 20 pages, and they are all WIP's.









As you can see, lots of yummy pages, in all different stages of "done" (is a page ever really done??).  I need to take a day and add the finishing touches to each of these pages!

My question to you, how do you deal with WIP's and UFO's?  Do they bother you?

Welcome to all my new subscribers and friends!  I am blessed.

Much LOVE! xo

  4. Love your pgs :) I like to have things finished, but if I really don't like something I've done, it's a UFO and may stay that way forever! WIP I usually like how it's going and I just keep working until I think it's finished. Although I have thought something was finished and then found a stamp or sticker that would make it perfect and went ahead and added it! Ha! So I guess some things are never finished :)

  6. PHENOMENAL pages Paula!I agree with Maria(above). I like having a few unfinished pages to work on when I'm not in the mood to start from scratch.
