Words to Live By


I got this idea from someone else, and I wish I could remember her name -- my apologies, whoever you are!  I used one of my favorite stencils by Carolyn Dube -- Words to Live By -- with acrylic paints and Sponge Daubers (by Imagine Crafts) on a leftover half-sheet of self-adhesive address labels:

 
 This is what it looks like now, while still intact.  I plan to individually use the labels as envelope-back stickers on snail-mail greeting cards -- I would much rather use stickers than lick the back of an envelope! 

Carolyn's Words to Live By is available here --

-- and while there, check out Carolyn's brand-new stencil series based on a beautiful assortment of buildings.  These new designs were a fantastic idea and I only wish I'd had it before she did!  But her muse is younger than mine and gets around faster ...
