Thursday Dream Scheme

Time for another Dreamweaver Stencils Thursday Dream Scheme. This week we were given a sketch challenge to follow. Here it is:

And here is what I created:
Sorry this sample had to be removed. Watch for great samples of Zentangling with stencils in Design Originals upcoming Zentangle book.
The balloon stencil was outlined with a Micron pen then the Zentangle technique was used to "fill" the balloon. Mount the balloon on a black mat. The background patterns were created by embossing four of the new background stencils on white paper with my Big Shot. I used a large stencil brush to add color to each background and cut them to the needed size and mounted them on a black mat. Use foam mounting tape to add the balloon to the backgrounds.
These new backgrounds are wonderful and so versatile! You'll be seeing a lot of them in the future.
Now check out the other team member blogs and don't miss the DREAM it UP! blog as well.
Happy Creating,
Louise

You are having way too much fun with the Zentangling! Love those softly colored panels of the new backgrounds, and that balloon turned out so cool! Love the little squigglies (technical term) in the center of the balloon. Really unique contrast of designs.

Your background showcasing the new stencils looks great and the Zentangle really "pops." I'd love to see more of your Zentangles using the larger open stencils!
