New ATC Mix-Up 9" x 12" Stencils and Masks Released Today at StencilGirlProducts(TM)!

These brand-new 18 images -- mostly stencils, with several masks included as a bonus -- are sized for creating Artist Trading Cards, but in playing with them, I've decided to explore a wider range of possibilities -- gift-tags, collage elements, embellishments for art journal pages, hanging ornaments, and even refrigerator magnets!

Some of those images are "echoes" of full-sized stencils and masks that I'd designed previously.  But in every case, the designs differ from the originals.  They stand alone as independents; and of course, they can also be used with the original stencils and masks that inspired their creation.

Not every one of these ATCs is derived from an original stencil that's proven popular during these happy years of my designing for StencilGirlProducts(TM.)  

Why not?  Good question!  Step to the head of the class!

Except for the month that I took off while recovering from a concussion, I spent about 6 months focusing on the intriguing idea of shrinking original designs, with the goal of developing 18 images, each roughly 2.5" x 3.5" ... and what I learned was that not every design can be successfully miniaturized!  Believe me, I tried!   

So I filled the gaps with designs that'd never yet seen the light of day.
