Mixed Media Monthly Challenge #32 - Put a Stencil on It

Welcome to the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge #32
"Put a Stencil On It"
(create a project using a stencil)
***please remember to add this graphic to your blog post***

Our January Sponsor & Guest Designer is Mary Beth Shaw of StencilGirl Products!!
 Mary Beth Shaw is author of Flavor for Mixed Media and Stencil Girl, is a columnist for Somerset Studios Magazine and a Golden Artist Educator. She is the founder of StencilGirl Products, LLC. Having hand-cut her own stencils for years, Mary Beth Shaw dipped her toe into the stencil design business in 2010 after her students asked if they could purchase some of her designs. She had a half dozen stencils cut to sell and voila! Before she knew it, StencilGirl Products was born. Today StencilGirl Products sells more than 900 stencils designed by a team of talented artists. StencilGirl Products cuts stencils the old fashion way, one at a time right here in the USA. StencilGirl is a family-owned business that includes Mary Beth, her husband John, and son-in-law, Frank.
~Mary Beth is offering the lucky random winner a $25 gift certificate to the StencilGirl Store.~
