Welcome to Inspiration from the StencilGirl Team using Craft Attitude . For me, Craft Attitude falls into a category not easily defined. I consider it a collage tool but it is really called a printable craft film.You can use it on nearly any substrate - wood, canvas, glass, painted items, even fiber. You apply it with a glue stick, yes, a simple glue stick. Before you apply, you can run it through your inkjet printer and print whatever you might like. After you apply, you can go back and paint or embellish.
It's really that easy.

Next up, I pulled out a plastic folder I found at our Teacher's recycle shop. It holds a tiny notebook and I thought it would be cute to carry in my purse, but (for obvious reasons) I wanted to decorate it in a more appealing manner.
I sanded it lightly to give it some "tooth" and then painted a coat of gesso. Then I collaged a piece of paper and blended a couple colors of transparent paint.
Using a glue stick, I carefully applied glue to the entire outside of the folder and then positioned the Craft Attitude over top and pressed it evenly all around. Trimming it with scissors couldn't have been easier. You have a bit of time to move it around so I was able to position the design exactly as I wanted.
I used Washi tape to make a faux binding and I also put Washi over the clear pocket inside. I replaced the tiny pad of paper and was done in probably 15 minutes. What a cool way to make a cute little item!
I even had plenty of leftover film left to use in other projects such as my journal.
Probably the coolest thing about the Craft Attitude is how seamless it looks. Once it is glued down, you can't even tell it's there. Love it! Plus I can go back and write or paint on top of it, such as in my journal. Easy peasy and you gotta love that!!
Now go see what Terri Stegmiller made today!!!!
