Stencils and Book Giveaway!!!

The Stencil Girl Design Team is at it again! Check out the amazing art journal spread created by Jennifer Armstrong, a columnist for Stencil Girl. I’m honored that she chose my book, Art at the Speed of Life, to create a project from. She used some of my stencil designs for her own take on that project and I’m in love with the journal page she came up with. You have to go HERE to check it out and please leave a comment there for a chance to win $50 worth of my stencils and a signed copy of Art at the Speed of Life!!!

New Halo Stencils are Now Available!

I just love it when new stencil designs finally come out! Many months before hand they are designed then you get proofs to play with to be sure they are ‘right’ and then you get the final cuts and get to make art with them but you can’t show anyone until they’re released lol! So you keep the fun and excitement to yourself waiting until you can share. Well I can now share my latest line of stencils with you!!! Woo hoo!

Announcing my new line of Halo Stencils!

The Beautiful Halo stencil  features a beautifully detailed halo behind the silhouette of a head which can be used on its own or with my Face Map Front 6×6 stencil and mask. Whether you leave the head area blank and fill it in with journaling or design or add a face, this stencil will add an element of beauty to your work. It’s a simple design that can easily enhanced with your own marks.

Creative HaloThe Creative Halo stencil  is made up of the mask of a face with a halo which is reminiscent of a color wheel. You can use this design on its own or in conjunction with my Face Map Front 6×6 stencil and mask. This stencil and gives an array of creative approaches for you to create a colorful focus to a face in your art journaling, monoprinting, or mixed media artwork.

Faithful Halo

The Faithful Halo is my favorite of this Halo stencil series, and the Maltese Cross inside of a circle that functions as a halo behind the mask of a face is ideal for adding deeper meaning to your work. It also creates a powerful image in art journaling, mixed media, and much more. This design can be used on its own or with my Face Map Front 6×6 stencil and mask.

The Radiant Halo stencil radiates light and positive imagery. The radiant beams coming out from behind the mask of the face are a great place to add journaling, words or patterns on art journal spreads, mixed media artwork, scrapbook layouts, and more. This stencil can be used on its own, or it works perfectly when paired with my Face Map Front 6×6 stencil and mask.

 

and here’s a little bit of artwork using these stencils to inspire you:-)

NOTE: Some of Seth Apter’s awesome stamps have been used in the making of this art! All other stencils are from Stencil Girl Products!

Art Journaling at the Speed of Life

Art Journaling at the Speed of Life

I just wanted to share some art journaling goodness with you all:-) I was thrilled to get my contributor copy of Art Journaling magazine and find me work on the cove! It totally caught me by surprise. As most of you know, I love art journaling and it’s my go to vehicle to teach workshops. They are such a valuable tool for any artist.
