Hi there! A few months ago, I participated in an awesome collaborative art journaling challenge led by Tina Walker, a designer at Stencil Girl Products, and had such a blast that when she suggested another collaboration, I said “YES!” immediately!
For this project, our assignment was to create a series of wish flags using Stencil Girl stencils and any other media or products of our choice.
Well, here are my flags! Since I work as a language & literature teacher at an International Baccalaureate middle school, I thought it’d be cool to create an IB-related piece of art that could be displayed in my classroom this fall. The flags are painted burlap with an underlayer of collage composed of travel-themed tissue papers and Washi tape; each of the 10 IB learner profile traits are featured on a painted wooden tag decorated with ribbon. I used designs from 3 Stencil Girl stencils on my flags, as well as stamped words and phrases.
It was a lot of fun to make these flags, and I can’t wait to see them hanging in Rm. 203 in September!
Please stop by the Stencil Girl Talk blog right away to see a variety of beautiful and meaningful wish flags created by Tina Walker and several other artists!
Have a great day!
