I hope you have been following the Blog Hop celebrating my new Stencil set from Artist Cellar!
I’m feeling like a very special girl with my fantastic, arty friends creating such AMAZING artwork.
And all so different! Wow!
Now… I could be super-nice and include a little summary for you, but I want you to treat your eyeballs by going on a little wander and visiting their blogs if you haven’t already. I have the list with links at the bottom of this post.
Now, what I have been creating with my stencils? Well! I’ve been super busy with craft shows and workshops since I got home from my trip to the USA and Mexico. So I have a been bringing forth lovelies aplenty!
In my in-person workshops I have been including lots of lovely collage.
And the collage is popping up in my work – especially in hair… such a wonderful place to add some whimsy…
And these two are from a face drawing demonstration I did in Melbourne.
Using the new Distress Stain colours in their hair – Peacock feathers and Picked Raspberry – yum!
I have a whole hand-made journal featuring the same stencil. And I love all the different faces appearing!
The turned face stencil is a favourite. You would think a stencil would cramp creativity, but they get me thinking out of the box. I can move quicker with ideas.
The eye set is wonderful ( If I do say so myself, lol!). Here is a work in progress. The closed eye stencil inspired this down turned face… As soon as I finish this blog post, I am going to get straight back to this one!
and here is the profile and one of the eye stencils…
This is a detail from another work in progress.
I sprayed some Dylusions ( the NEW Calypso Teal – heaven!!) on a gesso base.
I love the way it pools and puddles like a watercolour…
and here is some work from my students in all the in-person workshops I have been conducting lately!
The first is from Annie.
And this is from Karen – two very different takes on the same stencil!
And this next one from Natalie Hennekman in Melbourne – cute right?!
And I gave a set to my to my friend Diana when we were in Mexico, and this is her loveliness:
