 StencilGirl StencilClub artist Barbara McLawhorn has treated me with yet another artwork that she developed with the use of one of my stencils, 6" x 6" Ferns, along with a mask designed by Traci Baustista.  Barbara's approach was to use a combination of watercolors over natural leaves.  (Barbara used beet leaves because she wanted leaves with broad shapes.)  After those watercolors had dried, she lifted off the leaves and went back in to spray over the masks, using them to create a pattern.  Barbara used Dylan Reaveley sprays, which she says are intense; she also cautions that, because this paint stays water soluble, it needs a spray fixative layer before any additional wet media can be applied.

Above:  Barbara MacLawhorn has created a happy, energetic combination of colors and shapes!

StencilGirl StencilClub artist Karen Pesch put to use my 9" x 12" It's a Jungle Out There, along with crackle paste and watercolor, in making the artwork below.  Karen's substrate was stretched canvas that had not been previously covered with a layer of white gesso....

Above:  It's a Jungle Out There was used mostly along the top and bottom thirds of this three-dimensional artwork by Karen Pesch.


A third artist from StencilClub, Betsy Harting, has created a beautiful two-page art journal spread with my 9" x 12" Longwood Florals Mask ....

.... with a blend of colors that I call "sweet colors," because, to my eye, this combination of light-hued yellow and lavender are exactly that:  sweet. 

Today's next-up artwork comes from a workshop given a few years ago by StencilGirl's own MaryBeth Shaw.  One of her workshop participants created the arresting art below, cleverly spicing up the image by adding dots to the ginkgo leaf shapes that she printed using my 6" x 6" stencil Ginkgo.


Today's post ends with art by StencilClub artist Kathy Nyquist, who has used parts of my four 6" x 6" Abstract Composition Backbones Masks in bringing to resolution this abstract painting --
