Spread 240 – Mapping The Distances – Blog Hop and Giveaway of Jill K. Berry’s New Map Art Stencils May 12, 2014Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.
Fusing Jill’s new Map Art stencil designs into my own art journaling pages posed a bit of a challenge at first as I rarely use stencils in my practice. However it quickly became very exciting when I started to play with boundless possibilities. It was important to me to appreciate the designs in their original state, as Jill intended them to be, yet allow them to become something else, something that feels more personal to me. I found myself mapping the distances between Jill’s visual world and mine, distances between exterior and internal visual models, making them far or close as I pleased. Original elements shifted and changed and flowed from one to another. They gave rise to new fragments and images that felt honest to me. I enjoyed this process of giving in to exterior shapes and forms that originally did not belong to me and transforming them enough, to a point where I could claim them as my own. To get a chance to win Jill’s K.
