Bring Back Our Girls...and a give-a-way...

I'm featured over on StencilGirls blog, StencilGirl Talk today, creating journal covers that are made to fit standard composition books. Please come on over and check it out. 
One of the journal covers will be donated to the art auction at http://www.32auctions.com/bringbackourgirls because...


I'm also participating in the #BringBackOurGirls call to artists today to make some artsy noise in support of the right of girls around the world to have an education without fear of violence!




On April 14, nearly 300 girls were abducted from their school in Nigeria simply for pursuing an education. Today marks one month since the kidnapping of those girls!

Today is also the day many artists have come together to help make a difference by drawing attention to this horrendous issue and also by donating art to help raise money.  All of our proceeds with be donated to Girls Rising, to support the worldwide struggle for safe education for all girls and women. 

So please, visit http://www.32auctions.com/bringbackourgirls to buy some art, or make a donation. And please, make some noise to #BringBackOurGirls!

Here's a list of all of the participating artist and their blogsL

Some people had asked me for a tutorial for making a journal cover, so I have created this PDF which you are welcome to download for personal use.  All I ask is that if you make one you and blog about it, that you link back to this post, telling people where you got the tutorial.  Have fun!

  4. Loved your technique. I was wondering if you use acrylic paint on your fabric or a certain fabric paint. I'm pretty new to this.

  6. Great initiative, it reminds me of the story of the man walking on the beach and throwing the starfish back into the water, he couldn't save them all but his efforts were worth it.I pray for those girls.
