Wishing everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving Day! I hope you are able to be with loved ones or dear friends today. I know I am thrilled to have all my family home together counting our blessings.
The Dreamweaver Stencils design team is creating everything but a card this month to show you how truly versatile these beautiful stencils really are. We hope you will be inspired to create something of your own and join our challenge this month. Just link your creation at the DREAM it UP! blog using the linking tool or email a photo and description of your project to firstname.lastname@example.org, you may win a prize!
This month we are also using the wonderful adhesives from Beacon Adhesives in our work. It's true, the right tool for the job makes it much easier, and the different products from Beacon allow you to work with virtually any media.
Today I am showing a couple of pieces from the past that you may or may not have seen before. Both projects use the Lotus stencil (LG720) that I featured as part of my decorative mirror last week. Two more great gift ideas for the holidays!

The pin was made by staining grungepaper with Distress Stain worn lipstick, outlining the Lotus stencil (LG720) with a Micron pen in multiple times to create layers, cut out and glued together with ZipDry by Beacon Adhesives. Stain a small piece of grungepaper with Distress Stain peeled paint and outline the leaves of the Flowers and leaves stencil (LG625) cut them out and adhere behind the flower. Use Beacon Adhesive Gem-Tac to attach a small pin back. Decorate a shawl or purse with your beautiful pin!
