making some backgrounds . . .

Over at the Altered Arts Magazine blog today, I share my (usually) sure-fire way of calling a missing muse home.  Here are the results of some fine play time I had this week:

ABC stencil

This is my favorite one!
Here's a little something you may want to know--I saved these at full size, so if you right click on them, you can print them off and use them as backgrounds in your own creation.

Here is a peek at where some of these prints landed:
(If you know me, you may be thinking--"Is this a book??"  Oh, yes, it is!)

Need a weekend challenge?
