so I dug up a book of sailor jerry stencils at the shop a few weeks ago and I found a TON of inspiration for some new pieces!

here's the vintage flatware caddy:


and a close-up


and here's an art journal, I wanted to keep it for myself but you know how it is...


here's the inside, this used to be an old cash log book but I think it's much cooler and better served for poignant thoughts and introspective sketching


let me know what you think!

I love the flatware caddy!  Cute and retro, minus the kischiness.

And I have definitely felt the pain of not being able to keep a creation you love.  Coincidentally, I also know the guilt of keeping things that were supposed to be gifts. Wink

~Are you good at painting?  I would love some hand painted paintings of Pugs.  PM me and lets talk about a swap!  Smiley

~If someone tells you that your putting too much peanut butter on your bread, stop talking to them.  You don't need that kind of negativity in your life.

thanks! here's one of the books most tattoo shops use for reference http://www.superiortattoo.com/ProductInfo.aspx?productid=R109&utm_source=googlebase&utm_medium=feed, there's a pink covered book & a blue covered book. I used a different book for my reference but they're all over amazon
