More Tim Holtz Stencil Binders

I'm back again this month, shocking! Thank you so much for all the visits and comments lately...I appreciate it immensely.  Today, I have another set of stencil binders to house my ever growing stash of Tim Holtz Collection Stencils from Stamper's Anonymous. I love functional art. It's nice to have what you need in an organized way and when it's decorated it makes me happy. The Sizzix Colorize Animals from Tim are super fun to put together as well. ***Disclaimer: Please excuse my disgusting sense of humor on the Mini Stencil Binder. I adore the Charmin Bears know the one with "My hinny's clean.", and since the shortage of toilet paper I really have come to love the commercials. So I recreated the Charmin Bear and added a little silly wording to go with the theme, and some napkin for the toilet paper. NO REAL TP WAS USED TO CREATE THIS! ;0)
The two on the left are my older stencil binders (larger here, smaller here) that were quite full, so I made the two on the right to house the rest of the regular and small size, and I split them up between everyday and holiday varieties.
To get the correct size I needed, I trimmed down chipboard, #12, and #10 sized tags for the covers.
I have been following along and sometimes playing along with Tim's weekly demos. I love playing along when I can, and this day was all about Distress products. I used Distress Spray Stains and Distress Paints to create the backgrounds for my covers.
I used more paint to stencil in the foliage for the large covers. I let the paint go under the stencil, so after it dried, I used a white pen to outline the image. LOVE this. I also painted the edges of the chipboard covers with different reds and oranges.
I used more stencils to create the sun using paint, and the trim with wording using Picket Fence Distress Ink and stencils.
Then came the fun part...making the animals. I used black, gray, and white cardstock for the main parts, and a tag from the demos to make the colorful stripes and spots.
Then I added black silhouette flowers from the Wildflower Stems 1 and 2.
For the bear Theodore, I repeated again, but I didn't do a stenciled background. Instead I kept it simple with wildflowers and Remnant Rubs.
