Stencil Hop -skip- jump!

When I was in Bali at my Escape Artist Retreat, we had an advance set of my new face stencils to play with!

I saw some fab artwork come to life. This series shows a beautiful mermaid that Diana Rast created. She had the collage and the basic shape already prepared, and used the upturned face stencil. She traced through it with a prismacolour which is a great idea, because then the lines of the stencil fit in smoothly with the other drawn parts:Stencil Petite Diana Rast  114

What’s interesting for me is the sense of pride I feel when I see such beauty come in part from something I created. I don’t feel an ownership of the finished piece in any way, but I do enjoy recognising the hand I had in someone else’s creative expression.
