A few months ago I paid tribute to Mommie Dearest by creating a stencil of her at her most insane rant in the film, screaming ” NO WIRE HANGERS EVER!” Well, how else to spread the fun times than to also have a sticker made of this icon. StickerApp.com is the hero in this story. Their site makes it incredibly easy for you to upload and have a die cut sticker created and sent to you in a quickie!
They also have a library of designs you can choose from, seen here. And they offer custom printed skins and cases for your phone with a visual app to see how it would look, my leopard banana image shown here! Truly no one else would have the same case if I order this!
Well, I got to sticking my stickers and the first one I applied was to a Moleskine black journal. I carry these everywhere and like to customize the to distinguish it from others. I love, love, love Moleskine journals, a blank canvas to make your own. Some stickers then appeared outside, not sure how Check out StickerApp.com and show us what you made!
I am a list maker, a dreamer, and always thinking of new things I want to make. For this, I like having a journal with me at all times. On the train, when I travel, or just lounging around. The Stencil This journal was made to inspire people to stencil(using the cover and back which are plastic laser cut stencils) and to journal and draw on some hopefully inspiring pages. I choose some of my favorite stencil designs and Chronicle Books and I made them really come to life with some painterly treatments. You’ll see in these pictures I use the pages to plan videos, draw doodles of new designs, and test newly cut stencils such as this whale. I like how he works with the existing artwork becoming a quatrafoiled whale amongst spraypainted splats! I slashed the price of the journal and you can get it HERE. ENJOY!
Oui, it’s true. I love Paris. Design, Architecture, Art, Food, Style – Paris owns it. I took so many inspiring photos, some you’ll see below. I added in some street art images as well. Upon my return, I had to make a quintessential Paris stencil collection. The Paris pack is tres chic, featuring the Eiffel Tower, the L’arc de Triumphe, A Metro sign, and the lovely and mysterious Mona Lisa. Tell me what you’d make with them!
I often create a new stencil based on a trend I see but sometimes I just have to make something with personal meaning. My Ranchero stencil for example was my late Father’s car (truck?) and when he passed I inherited this hot rod of a car! Living in Brooklyn with a boat of a car that gets 12 miles per gallon, she’s now out of my life but I had many a joy ride in this car with my Dad. What’s nice is a lot of people seem to like this stencil as well. I think when you design from the heart, it gives your design life. That’s my 2 cents for the day! Yee-haw!
When I see gorgeously tacky gem sweaters, like the bedazzling beauties that glam grannies wear, one gal comes to mind – Leslie Hall. Leslie is simply high fashion in my book, rocking Tootsie style glasses, some fitted gold lame numbers and, of course, her signature gem sweaters.
Well, I emailed Leslie to be a guest artist in Stencil Style 101 to show how to make a gem sweater, and in this case, incorporating one of our stencils. She was all aboard! Check out our model Lucy channeling the gem sweater spirit of Leslie.
The sweater was made using fabric glue, a bag of gems, our chevron stencil and a vintage sweater. The full how to is in Stencil Style 101.
Make sure to check out the video that inspired all of this – Leslie and the LY’s – GEM SWEATER, with over a million views, you too will be addicted to her positive jam and then bedazzle all your wardrobe!
PS- She plays WEDDINGS!
