Stenciled Portfolio Fun to Make

Mary Ann challenged us to make portfolios in her Stencilry class this week. This is the best online class that I've take. Her videos, resources, ideas are wonderful. Plus, it is fun to see how and where she creates her art. I feel like I'm in sunny LA with her videos. Here in the NW we have to spray paint in between the rain showers. Below are the covers-
Here is the inside-
Now, I'm off to make background pages.

Hi Paula - Thanks for letting me know you are doing this! I haven't had time to go through all the wonderful links in Mary Ann's sidebar. I too am dashing out to the garage - one bay open, one closed - spray painting while it rains and snows! We are having winter in spring! Love your colorful covers. It really is fun and so different from our other work. I'll be checking to see how her other lessons are going for you. And I agree, the BEST online class I've seen too. xo fran

Thanks, Fran. It's good to hear from you. I'm thinking of turning my portfolio covers into one big journal, too. Can't wait to do this week's lesson with 9 how-to videos.

I love the lacy stencils, Paula. You always do such good work. I'm anxious to see all you do with this class.

Hi Jan, Yes, this class is a lot of fun and thank goodness for the warmer, dry days to be outside and spray paint. Thanks for stopping by to see what I'm doing.
