Featured by Julie Fei-Fan Balzer: Stencil Techniques

Balzer Designs

I hope you are having a good week? Mine's been a bit crazy so far, but very good indeed! My Mum arrived on Saturday, Chloe' is back to her energetic cheeky loud self and I have a super-exciting post for you today! Ha!

Firstly, I'd like to welcome my new blog buddies! So great that you joined me here! :) I hope you will enjoy my posts...

I have a slightly different post for you today. It is very special for me and I hope you will find some time to explore what I'm about to show you. I'd like to invite you to visit the Balzer Designs blog today, because what you will find there is my guest blog post! That's right!! It was my dear friend Donna who made me aware of Julie being curious about our favourite stenciling techniques. I left a comment on Julie's post and emailed her about my love for stenciling with oil pastels, stamping over stencils and creating fun backgrounds by removing colour knowing Julie wanted to start guest series about the subject. It was the most wonderful when Julie replied saying she loved the ideas and would like to feature them on her blog! Thank you, Julie! It is very much appreciated! I feel very honoured! xx

Julie Fei-Fan Balzer is an amazing artist, a beautifully creative and imaginative designer and a very sweet lady. If you are a newbie and haven't had the pleasure coming across her fabulous stencils, stamps, designed T-shirts, DVDs, classes and other fabulousities you MUST explore her website. You will be amazed by the variety of arts and crafts and her fabulous inspirational ideas.

Please hop over to Julie's blog to see what I created and find out about my three fun techniques I used to create my art journal page spread. You will find numerous photos there, but here's a sneak peek...

Thank you for stopping by! Please feel free to leave me a comment on my post on Julie's blog or here. I would love you to share your thoughts! I shall look forward to it!

All the best! Big hugs,
