I am going to be a StencilGirl stencil artist!!!!!
Actually, StencilGirl already has some of my stencils in production. They will be available SOON!
I have been creating stencils for myself to use in my artwork for quite some time now, so I got brave and submitted some to StencilGirl. The rest is history, LOL.
Here is my stencil philosophy. A stencil is not sacrosanct. It is merely a drawing, painting and mark making tool. You can use tiny bits of it or the whole thing. After you have stencilled the image, change it, layer on top of it, flip it, use parts of it in reverse. Use medium, plaster, gesso, paint--perhaps your own blood--to create texture and color. And about the blood: it is getting close to Halloween. Besides, don't some of your paintings feel as if you bled making them?
I will let you know the second I join the StencilGirl group of very talented artists. Wait, I probably won't have to. You will hear me screaming: "I'm a StencilGirl !"
I know, shameless self promotion. I will make it a topic on my sidebar.
