Just Us Girls - Trend Week

It's my turn to bring you this week's Trend Challenge at Just Us Girls.  I am challenging you to use a stencil on your creation.  If you don't have any stencils you can punch or die cut some shapes or words and use the negative piece for your stencil.  Stencils are so versatile; you can sponge ink through them, use spray mists, watercolors, acrylic paint, modeling paste, spackle or anything you can imagine.

Our fabulous January Guest Designer - Judy Woodland is with us again this week!  Come see how Judy and the rest of the JUGS Design Team have used stencils.

I used a stencil to add the little hearts and the splatter, I am very splatter impaired, so I bought a stencil of splatters.  The larger heart, arrow and sentiment are from the Gina K set - Lots of Lines.  And for a little added pattern, I added a strip of washi tape down the left side.

Can't wait to see what everyone can do with stencils!

If you win Chic of the Week in any of our January challenges, you will be in the running to be our Guest Designer for the month of March.  Good luck!

Please limit your entries to 3 

Deadline to be considered for the "Chic of the Week" is 9PM EST on Thursday, January 15th.  Our Chic of the Week will be announced the following Friday.  

Thanks for playing along!
