NEW Stencil Release Blog Hop Featuring Seth Apter

Seth Apter packs so much into a stencil; I mean seriously, look at these stencils! There are so many li'l sections of goodness. These are the kind of stencils you will find yourself reaching for over and over.
I especially love the words he chooses as they have double and triple meanings and can be applied to so many situations. In my opinion they are must have stencils for journaling or, well, for just about anything.
I decided to work in my journal again - you've gotta know I am absolutely addicted to art journaling now! Here is the spread that I started with, a randomly painted and stenciled page.
First I selected some collage bits, things I thought I might possibly use. I tend to pull out a lot of stuff and then only use a small portion of it, but that's ok.
This page is highly personal for me, most of my pages are if I think about it. But this is the one I did the day my Mom got her diagnosis. The Big C diagnosis. By the time you read this, I will already be in Cincinnati for her surgery and aftermath - what will hopefully turn into a good recovery. My Mom is super private, so I don't want to share detail here, but your prayers or positive thoughts would be so appreciated.
Here are some closeup pages:
This part below includes a really weird selfie I took back before they were called selfies.
It looks like I am having an out of body experience, which is pretty much how I feel.
And finally, here is the finished Journal Spread.
I used all three of the stencils in this spread, little bits here and there. I also used them again the next day and the next day. Ahem. LOVE them!! Way to go, Seth!!!
