StencilGirl NOT AFRAID TO TRY 9x12 Stencil l622

The Not Afraid to Try stencil by Gwen Lafleur was inspired by an idea that came up in a book that she read in her Business Judgment class during business school. She used the concept in her final project for the class and it's been a mantra that she's worked on incorporating into her life ever since and now, as a stencil design, everyone can incorporate it into art journaling, mixed media, handmade cards and tags, and more. You can also mask off and rearrange the hand-drawn letters from this quote to make your own words and phrases.
The design motifs were all originally some of Gwen's hand-carved stamp designs; the borders were inspired by hand-carved woodblocks from India, the other element was inspired by a hybrid of a vintage metal finding and architecture on a building in downtown Salt Lake City. You can repeat the borders to make them longer, or turn them into backgrounds.
StencilGirl Products' stencils are a perfect companion for papercrafters, fiber artists, art journalers, mixed-media artists but most importantly the artist in you.

Having hand-cut her own stencils for years, Mary Beth Shaw dipped her toe into the stencil design business in 2010. Expanding StencilGirl to team up with other artists is the fulfillment of her dream to provide the highest quality artist designed stencils for the mixed media world. Artists who know and love stencils, and use them regularly design StencilGirl stencils. The stencils are thick enough to be strong and long lasting, yet thin enough to provide a seamless look. These stencils are also laser cut using 7 mil mylar, a plastic film that is heat resistant. Mary Beth personally tests every single stencil for the strength of its design!
