PaperArtsy And StencilGirl Blog Hop and Giveaway

PaperArtsy and StencilGirl blog hop badge

Welcome to the PaperArtsy and StencilGirl Blog Hop and Giveaway!

As an extra special seasonal treat this week the StencilGirl and PaperArtsy design teams have got together for a feast of inspiration to get your creative flow going with a blog hop running from 21st - 24th December.

Everyday for the next four days a new post will go live on four of the StencilGirl and PaperArtsy design teams blogs. Hop around the blogs and leave comments and you could win a fabulous prize too, but more on that later in my post!

First I wanted to share my PaperArtsy and StencilGirl blog hop project with you. I'm calling it 'Feather'.

A mixed media piece by Kim Dellow using products from StencilGirl and PaperArtsy

I've used a some of the wonderful StencilGirl's stencils to build up texture in my background with PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Acrylic paint. Then I've used one of the stamps from my own PaperArtsy range with some StencilGirl feather stencils to build the focal point.

If you want to see how I have built this piece then I have a handy start-to-finish video for you!
