3 Artists Using my Masks and Stencils from

Today's post shines a light on artists who have used some of my stencil and masks, and the ball starts rolling with Carolyn McGowan.  Carolyn's three photos below show prints made with 3 of the Artist-Trading-Card stencils that are among the 9 included in ATC Mixup Swatton #1.  Carolyn's substrate was brown packaging paper and her technique was to apply a variety of commercial color sprays.  After the paper had dried, Carolyn added a whimsical touch by sewing around each of the images.  This project was part of a bigger project done at StencilGirl StencilClub for a project-of-the-month swap with a washi tape theme.

Below:  The 9" x 12" ATC Mixup Swatton #1which holds 9 stencils and 3 bonus masks, all sized to fit Artist Trading Cards.  Cats also comes in a 6" x 6" size and Hot Air Balloon, two additional sizes.

Coming up next:  A new-to-me artist, Claudia Holland, has used my two stencils below --

9" x 12"  Branching Blossoms Silhouette

... and ...

9" x 12" Garden Montage

-- to make the following prints using her Gelli Plate:

The above Branching Blossoms Silhouette print was made with luscious metallic paints.

Below are two Gelli Plate prints Claudia made using Garden Montagefirst as a positive image and second as a negative image.  Both were made with a variety of paints blended together; my favorite is the second one -- I love these mysterious colors!

The photo below comes from another project made for the washi tape series mentioned at the top of this post.  You can click on it to enlarge it and better see details.   The artist here is Joy Bayus, and, among the other images she chose for making her washi tape, she included prints made with my Artist Trading Card-sized stencil Osprey.  This is one of nine stencils that come with my 9" x 12" ATC Mixup Swatton #2 ....

The ATC stencil sheet itself -- along with its two bonus masks -- appears directly below, and is available here.

Osprey and many of the others also come in larger sizes.
