2016 Winter Blog Hop Night Two.

Winter Blog Hop Night Two

Thank you for your amazing feedback on Part one of this 4-part hop! We cannot tell you how excited the designers have all been behind the scenes! It really has been an eye opener for all these artists working together with StencilGirl and PaperArtsy, 2 small but perfectly formed family-owned companies!

Tonight we have lined up for you four more amazing designers. There is a snippet of each project below. Just follow the links and hop away to the next blog! Remember to leave a comment and you'll be entered in the prize draw.

Tonight's contributors are:

First up this evening we have one of PaperArtsy's Signature Designers Jo Firth-Young.

Hi Jo Firth-Young here, I am a big fan of both PaperArtsy and Stencil Girl, so this was a lovely blog hop to be part of! I really enjoyed using the stencils with the paints - the fast drying time of the paints makes them a perfect partner, and because of their chalk/matte finish stamping on top is easy.

I chose mainly floral design stencils to work with because that's what inspired me - so many options/ideas coming to mind it was hard to reign them in! I also like that I was able to create big and small projects from the same stencils, really versatile.

Please visit Jo's blog HERE, to see all the steps of her project.

Our next guest is one of the PaperArtsy HQ elves, Lauren Hatwell.

Hi everyone,Lauren Hatwell here. I loved taking part in the blog hop. It was such a privilege and I had a great time.

I thoroughly enjoyed making my project for the blog hop. What a treat to have so many great products to play with!

I knew I was pushing my luck working on white fabric and I am so pleased with how cleanly the stamping and stencilling turned out. It's an absolute testament to the quality of the paints, stencils and stamps I had to work with.

Hop on over to Lauren's blog to see how she made this fabulous cushion for her craft-room chair. 

Now for our StencilGirl guests, first up we have Kristie Taylor

Hi Kristie here, It was so awesome to combine Paper Artsy fresco paints and StencilGirl stencils, they go perfectly together, like peanut butter and jelly!

Please visit Kristie's blog HERE and leave her a comment.

Last up tonight is Tina Walker

Hi there, Tina here. Using stencils, stamps, and paints together is one of my favorite combinations. With just a little doodling, stencil painting, and stamp embossing you create just about anything.

Visit Tina's blog and leave a comment to be in with a chance of winning.

Oh my! How lucky are we to have such talent featuring the products of StencilGirl and PaperArtsy! It is astonishing how ideas go in such diverse directions, we love that everyone seems to have such flexibility to use products in so many diverse ways! What an amazing blog hop this is! I'm so glad StencilGirl thought of us to partner with for this project!
