Stencils from the abstracted calligraphic work of Jill K. Berry


Four new stencils from Artistcellar.com Runes, Road Map, River Map, & Romans

Here are some journal pages that I used Jill’s stencils on. All of them were stenciled using Liquid Pencil Sketching Ink with a stencil brush. I love the soft look of graphite and it allows you to layer up other media over the top of the TEXTures.
