Here I am again, going for another test drive with Jessica Sporn’s new stencils that she’s created and are now sold on Stencil Girl Products. I love what my friend, Jessica, has created and by now, I think many of the stencils she’s made have new owners and they are creating beautiful art with them. Like, this week, check out the other artists taking this stencil for a drive Marjie Kemper, Nataša May, Maggie Nemetz and Maria Mcguire. This week we are testing Jessica’s “borders” stencils. I wasn’t too sure what I wanted to do with them… something different. So, I ended up making polymer clay bookmarks. How, you say? Well.. lookie there.. here is a video on how I made them.
Post Video Comment: My friend, Raine, who is a great polyclay artist, mentioned that the reason why I had gritty raised edges was because of the leather texture. Ah, DUH MOMENT, JUDY!!! Of course it was. I’ve always used texture plates with clay, never stencils. So, when I put the clay against the leather, that’s why it was rough, because of the tiny pattern on the leather. There you have it. I digress. Thanks, Raine. Don’t mind me, I’m in my own little world over here.
Some close ups of the final bookmarks… click pictures for a closer look.
I hope you enjoyed the video and the bookmarks. They make great gifts.
Thanks for stopping by. I love hearing from you.
