Emerald Creek & StencilGirl Blog Hop

Emerald Creek and StencilGirl Blog Hop
Welcome to the StencilGirl and Emerald Creek blog hop. This hop is full of talented people, from Seth Apter, to Eileen Hull, Tina Walker and so many more. I’m definitely super excited to be part of this hop and can’t wait to hear from you what you think about all these incredible projects.

I combined Seth Apter’s Baked Texture with other Emerald Creek embossing powder and stencils from Traci Bautista and Cat Kerr. I love silhouette stencil and just had to make them shine for this post. But enough talk… here is my video that shows you how I created my art journal page.

After I was done, I realized that the mix of Charred Gold and Deep Sea looks like shine on wet ground. That happened totally unintentional 😉
