It was the joy of discovering Kate Word's work in StencilGirl Talk that propelled me to her website, where I promptly ordered a cartload of her artwork in prints.
Theologian and philosopher Thomas Aquinas had a mystical experience after he had already spent a long time writing about God. Awestruck after this experience, he said that everything he had written was "dust" ... meaning that his own intelligence and imagination, despite his longtime devotion and study, had fallen far short of grasping the scope and wonder of the Divine.
On a much lower scale, I've had the same feeling after seeing Kate Word's art. Here I have been posting about collages I've created using stencil-printed papers. Well, my own collages became "dust" when I saw the gorgeous artwork of Kate Word!
I'm not saying this just because Kate has used -- among many other stencils from StencilGirlProducts.com -- a few of my design, including Longwood Florals Stencil L676 ...

Feast your eyes, below, on what Kate has done using that stencil -- and a number of other stencils from StencilGirlProducts.com. --
But don't stop there! My jaw hit the floor when I browsed Kate's website, here.
After that, you may very well join me in buying handfuls of her artwork!
