New Stencil Designs!

Color Wheel Stencils are here!

Have you ever been working on a project and thought, I wish I had _____________? Well that is how my new line of stencils was born!

I was working on samples for workshops and drawing color wheels for the umpteenth time and I thought I really wish I had a stencil of these, not only are they handy for working out color palettes, they are such beautiful design elements to use in art journals and other projects. So after a talk with Mary Beth Shaw from Stencil Girl Products I went to work on some and now they are ready to go!

Just click on any of the stencil images and they will take you right to Stencil Girls website

Here are some journal pages that I used the stencils on. I had a wonderful opportunity to share take them ( and a whole host of new designs) for a test drive with my students at Art Is You…Nashville this past weekend. I will be sharing more new designs in my line over the next few weeks.

Share New Products


It’s so much fun to Share Art! Especially when you find some cool new product. I recently heard about something cool from all of the Face Book chatter filtering in from CHA, Tulip Paint Cannons.

I had to find out more so I took my Michael’s coupon and headed out before the impending snowstorm left me housebound.

Now, when I go to Michaels I never go over to the isle where these little babies hang out so I had to ask where they were. They’re over by the T-shirt paints and had I not been intrigued with the idea of being able to use paint like a spray paint, I might have overlooked them. Then I found the Graffiti line of stencils… ok, now I was even more excited! Stencils usually make me think of old fashioned crafting and they’re usually kind of boring. Not these! Very edgy and cool just like the name implies.

So I picked up some Paint Cannons, and stencils and headed home to try them out.
I used my fluid Golden paints in them, with a little water, pumped them up and voila, spray paint effect with no fumes!!!

All of these journal pages were created in about 15-20 minutes from start to finish. Gotta love that! I used a watercolor notebook and the pages stayed nice and flat and absorbed the paint nicely.
when I posted the pics on FB, people started asking for a tutorial so I did a quick little video showing this page from start to finish.

You can check out the video here,

And here are the Dauber Bottles that everyone asks about.

The lovely people over at ILOVETOCREATE saw the video and are sending me some more products to try! How nice is that? I promise to share some more techniques with you all when I get them. Please leave a link if you try these so we can all see what you create!

And don’t forget to Share Art!

More sharing coming in the near future so stay tuned…
