Above, Shelly Hilligoss Sturges shows us a creative, striking way to use my 9" x 12" stencil Vintage Script -- by using it backward, she made it exciting in a way I'd never imagined! I love it when I run across an artist like Shelly, who thinks outside the box!
The artwork below shows more innovation paired with strong visual language, this time by Jill McDowell, who is a StencilGirl Creative Team Member.
Jill used several StencilGirl stencils in developing the art above, and among them, my 6" x 6" Heron stencil.
Below is art by Mary C. Nasser, who used one of my two hot air balloon stencils. (Each of these two stencils come with same-size masks.) The background was made with a stencil by Valerie Sjodin -- an artist whose work I'd admired for years, having had the good fortune to discover her long before her welcome addition to the team of designers at StencilGirl.
Above: A charming detail from a larger, equally charming, painting by artist Kim Ross, who used my 6" x 6" Cats stencil.
By clicking on the image below, you can enlarge it to better see detail. Among other StencilGirl stencils, artist Lisa Dobry used my 9" x 12" stencil Prayer Flags to add texture to the background of this two-page spread in her art journal.
Above: Again, by clicking on the shot above, you can better see its details. This art was created by StencilGirl Columnist Jennifer Armstrong. Jennifer used my 6" x 6" stencil Pressed Leaves to make this gentle, happy image.
The exciting artwork below was done by Terry O'Neill, with StencilGirl stencils that include my 9" x 12" stencil Thistle (which also comes in a 6" x 6" size.)
I'm so very grateful that these artists have allowed me to use their photos in this blog!
