 I'm always grateful and delighted when other artists use stencils and masks I've designed for StencilGirl Products.

Up first today:  Netherlands artist Sylvia Lokhoff de Bruijn, who used my 6" x 6" mask Sassy Spray s465, multiple times, with the collection of inkpads shown below.  These rich, subtle tones are a shining example of one way to use masks and stencils.  Sylvia's originality has made this art sample unique.



Above:  Artist Janina Byrne has put my 6" x 6" LOVE s828 to work in developing this bold statement.  The combination of these bright colors, contrasting happily with areas and outlines of white, grabs the viewer's attention.  The leaf design on the far left may have been created by another stencil designer at StencilGirl Products, but in trying to locate it to give credit due to that designer, I sadly wasn't able to find it.

Below:  This stunning page from an art journal is the work of artist Terry Lightfoot.  Notice how the double-hued background creates a lovely focal area at the top.  Pale yellow and blue being near-opposites (complements) on the color wheel means that using them side-by-side this way, an artist can really pack a punch.  The stencil Terry used is 9" x 12" Longwood Garden Florals L676, which is also available as a mask, Longwood Garden Florals Mask L675.

On the color wheel above, notice that blue, in the lower left area, appears nearly opposite the mellow shades of yellow-orange, on the upper left.

Claudia Holland, another artist living in the Netherlands, has created the beauty shown below ...

... and the mask she used is 9" x 12" Branching Blossoms Silhouette L284.  Sometime in the future, Claudia will be using more of my stencils and masks from StencilGirl Products.  I can't wait to see the magic she creates on paper.  The art sample above was created with the help of a Gelli Plate.

Thanks for taking time to check out my blog today!  To scroll thru the pages of my stencils and masks at StencilGirl Products, please start here.  Have a great day making art!
