Stencil Girl Wish Flag Collaboration

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!

    Your students are in for a treat when they return to classes this fall! These wish flags turned out so awesome! I love the bright colors and the wonderful texture that they all have. Super idea to use the IB traits. A beautiful reminder of what they are to become!
