StencilGirl and Seth Apter Blog Hop

You know what I like about Seth Apter's stencils?
Lots of things really.....
but mainly the itty bitty parts,
the words,
the shapes, and
the versatility.
Those little parts - weird shapes, circles, squares, grids. Those parts are what I call "integrators". That probably isn't even a word, but I'm talking about design elements that can help pull your art together, be it a journal spread, a greeting card or a canvas. Tiny detail can work wonders to link up sections of the art and to help the piece flow.
And the Words, these are words for thinking people. The type of words that have a lot to say. Double meanings and prefixes and suffixes with lots of variety.
Here's a journal spread I recently completed using Seth's and also one of my new stencils.
Mary Beth Shaw journal spread with StencilGirl Products stencils.

  19. MaryBeth, your journal spread, as viewed in the small pic, looks like a view on the ocean, cuz to me the bottom torn papers look like waves. When i enlarge the view, it brings so much more to the eye to see and take in--it looks like buildings and maybe a map to somewhere, or nowhere, or an artistic view of what's going on in the mind--i love the layers and colors! And Seth's stencils mixed in with all the other goodness :) cowtown (at) cowtownstamps (dot com)
