My Stencil Release– Blog Hop and Giveaway!!! June 22, 2014

Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.

Congratulations to the winners in the StencilGirl Blog Hop featuring my stencils. Is your name listed below???? Please send Maria a private message on the StencilGirl Products Facebook page for them to get your information so you can get your prize. 10438442_695676077134564_1322855869496845882_n

I am so excited, so soooo excited!!! I’ve been waiting for today, for my first series of stencil designs with StencilGirl Products to finally be revealed on StencilGirl Talk. I am so thankful to StencilGirl for trusting me, and especially to MaryBeth Shaw for encouraging me to draw inspiration for these stencils designs from my own art-journaling pages. I intend to weave them into my own art journaling practice and share them with my friends and my students in my art journaling workshops. I am also super curious to see what other people in faraway lands do with them, when I am not looking (-: So please do share!

StencilsThrough these stencils you may explore new forms of visual expression that will surely be both visceral and instinctual, but most certainly pure fun too. Use them on your canvases, in your mixed-media practices, and in your art-journals. Hey how about on furniture, walls, bed sheets, and fabrics? Endless! Use them when you are completely pumped up and ready to create or when your muse is temporarily unattainable. Use a stencil as a whole, or better yet use its parts, while piling them up, layering, to bring forth your own personal imagery world. I have enjoyed playing with them, making patterns with paints and make-up sponges and pens, using molding paste for textural qualities, creating subtle backgrounds or bold focal images. Here is an accordion book I made out of a cardboard box, it’s entirely prompted by the stencils. So glad I can finally show it to you, both sides, open and closed, zoomed in and out.
