Balzer Designs Spring Stencil Hop



Welcome everyone!


I am so honoured to be a part of Julie's hop again this year.  As many of you know, not only am I a big fan, but I LOVE her stencil designs!


This hop features Pomegranate from The Crafter's Workshop:




One of the things I love about this stencil is how it can be used as either an accent, or for a complete background.  My first page reflects it's use as an accent.  I used the 6x6 version of the stencil and some spray ink:






Here's how you can use this stencil (or others!) in a simple background technique:





Don't forget to subscribe to me on Youtube for more tutorials!





I absolutely love how simple, yet stunning, this technique is!


Please check out the other artists in the Hop!
