Art Gone Wild Paisley Stencil Card Step 8Hello, today I thought I'd share this tutorial I created using my Paisley Stencil from Art Gone Wild! I've been meaning to post it for the last few weeks....and you know how that goes :-D

The completed card size is 5” x 7”, but you could make it any size or use it for an art journal page!

Tools and Supplies I used for this card:

  • 400 Mixed Media Paper 6 x 8

  • Art Gone Wild! Paisley Stencil by Catherine Scanlon CSSTL-002

  • Spellbinders Mega Ovals

  • Hero Arts Sending Smiles CL-490

  • Sakura Koi Watercolor Paint

  • Splash of Color: Silks Acrylic Glaze in Orange

  • Gelli Pens, Colored Pencils

  • Permanent Marker

  • Pencil

  • Black StazOn and Brown Distress Ink

  • Sewing Machine

  • Cardstock: Black, Cream

  • Kraft Blank Card Base

  • ½” Foam Tape

  • Permanent Adhesive


Here's how you can make one like this using the Paisley Stencil:


  • Trim the Mixed Media Paper to slightly smaller than 5” x  7” to create the card panel.

  • Position the stencil on top of the paper and use a pencil to trace the design that falls on the card panel.

  • Use the pencil to add hand drawn doodles on the design as shown in the example.
