Earth Spirit. "Stencils" are this month's challenge theme over at The Mirror Crack'd and I loved their challenge right away as I am a true stencil girl from the heart ;) The makes of their DT were really inspiring and made me want to "stencil somethin'" right away....luckily I had bought a lovely Dina Wakley stencil at a sale recently and was burning to use it so this was the perfect occasion and impulse!

Earth Spirit

I also bought some 4x6 Project Life Journaling Cards to use as a substrate for some quick and rather playful projects....they are larger than ATCs (Artist Trading Cards, which I love to do, but sometimes find them too small) and definitely something between ATC and Art combining two kinds of projects I really like!
