Genuinely Jane Studios and Artistcellar Team up Hop!!!

Hello all my crafty friends, I hope you find yourselves well!!  Well, things have been really crazy busy over here, with all the new wonderful adventures I am having with GJS!!!  That brings me to this weeks post.  We  here at Genuinely Jane Studios have had the pleasure of teaming up with Artistcellar, creator of some of the most wonderful stencils around.  Everyday this week we will feature a different project made by one of each of the DT members from each company, so this means that there will be one project showcased on the Artistcellar blog and one on the blog of each GJS DT member.  Don't worry you won't have to search for which DT member it is, you will be directed to them from Artistcellar   so be sure to check back everyday to see what the new project is for that day!!!

So what is this hop all about, simple, use a GJS book and Artistcellar's stencil in/on your project.  So this is what I came up with!!

I decided to do a 12x12 canvas.  I used the cover page of the Dress Form book (item G007) as the main focal point.  I gussied it up a bit and added it to the front of my canvas that I had decorated with paper's, paint, India ink. Artistcellar's Seven Jewels 6x6 stencil, modeling paste and Pan Pastels.  I added a quote that I pulled off the internet and coated them with Collage Pauge to make sure that they will not come off!!  

Please be sure to check out both Genuinely Jane Studios and Artistcellar, you 'll be sure to find something awesome and wonderful to help you create!!!

I hope you have enjoyed my project and that it inspires you to create something great!!

Until next time, Hug's and Happy Craftin!!

This is just beautiful! Love that quote too! Great use of the dress form and stencils!


This phrase is so true and perfectly fits in the project (or the project fits perfectly to the phrase?*lol*). You really did a great job and I love the way you used all kind of mixed medias. Stunning. I only wish, you would have made some pics of the process itself too. Thanks for a wonderful inspiration. C~


Hi, Ildi! So nice to be partnered with you for the Artistcellar / Genuinely Jane Studios blog hop! I espeically love that we both used ruffles - although in completely different ways! ♥

I have that stencil and it is really fun to see it used in a totally different way that I have not yet tried....Thanks for sharing!


This is a really cute piece. I love all the textures and the colors.

Ildi, this is just beautiful. The background is so rich and the phrase is especially powerful for me for reasons much too complicated to explain here. Thank you for sharing it.

I love how you did this. It gives me some creative ideas to use later. :)


I have some chipboard albums that I had no idea what I was going to do with them. You just gave me an idea for using some of them. I was stuck in a rut that they had to be used as a book - that's not true. Now I can go and play without feeling guilty about breaking up a book. thanks so much.
