Here are my friends joining me this time :


Martha Richardson: I know Martha now for some time- we worked together on a design team and she always blew me away with her amazing projects.

Maria McGuire: She is rocking it now for several blog hops- she is awesome!

Corrine Gilman: I discovered her because she is a member of the StencilGirl Creative Team and boy do I love her work – it is so beautiful!

Michelle Hernandez: Michelle is an awesome scrapbooker who makes me laugh a lot with her humor and who I finally had the pleasure to meet this summer in NYC


I designed this stencil because I love typewriters. When I grew up I had this gigantic old office typewriter from the 40s which I used to write my first novel on. The novel never made it to more then 11 pages, when it was replaced by a new idea- but anyway- I loved my typewriter. I am also one of those people that learned proper blind typewriting and I am quite quick and good at it – LOL. I bought a nice old one at a flea market and it must weigh a thousand pounds. There is a lot I connect with typewriters: vintage, office, notes, letters, work, messages….

Check out some samples I did already here:

Here is what I created for today:



It is a crazy art journal page ;) I do love to use random pages in my art journal and scrape off leftover paint, try out on an small area a little technique and often times I get this huge dimension and depth in a background which is ready to finish. I used the typewriter Stencil with some acrylic paint that stenciled through onto some marbleized paper.



I cut out the typewriter – added a slid through which I put a piece of canvas with with a “note to myself” tag and then mounted it on small 3D Foam Pads. The journaling reads “Seriously don’t take others or yourself too serious!”

I also love using the typing keys of the typewriter by itself for mark making -and you can see I did it throughout the spread but also around the pages as a frame.



Here are the supplies I used:


Now hop on over to my friends and check what they did and comment for some changes to win the stencil :)

    I too started out typing on a typewriter and have been looking for one for ages. I just found one last month and have been loving it so this stencil would be wonderful to have.

    I would love to get my hands on an old typewriter. The mark makings give me goosies… and the colors?.. well fuhgedaboudit. Hoping to hop with your as soon as I move and settle in, as I know you have a big move coming up, too. But I can’t imagine moving to a new country.
