I first used the stencils on my Gelli Print Plate to make some cool papers.

Then I used them in a painting to add some organic shapes. I love how versatile these stencils are.

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

Complementary 6 x 6

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.

PanPastel and Stencils

I was playing with my PanPastels the other day when someone commented that they were glad to see ‘PamPastels’ again lol. So I decided to give them a go with one of my Face Map stencils from Stencil Girl Products and get  a little more video editing practice on my iMac. I shot this video at my worktable using the camera on the mac. This is not the way I shoot video for classes, I have a whole other set up for that, but it does make it easy to shoot a short video for youtube!

This is the finished piece of art, done on 9 x 12 watercolor paper that was prepped with a coat of gesso. It took less than 30 minutes total to create and with no dry time, save the two coats of pastel fixative at the end, it was easy to make with very few tools and no mess.

Introducing

TEXTures

Stencils from the abstracted calligraphic work of Jill K. Berry

ACpack

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.
