We thought February 29th, being a Leap Year, was a pretty cool date to release our newest stencil series, Sacred Geometry 2! You seem to love our first Sacred Geometry series, we're pretty sure you'll love these also. We are also hosting a blog hop with this release, and I've got an awesome set of artists lined up. The dates and links to their blogs are at the end of this post, so be sure to check them out. Every artist will be giving away a FREE set of Sacred Geo 2 stencils to a lucky person who leaves a comment on the artist's blog post. That means there will be SEVEN lucky winners in all, and you have seven chances to win, but please, to avoid confusion, one comment per blog stop.
I've had these stencils for awhile now, but being predictable, the first thing I did was grab my gelli plate and start monoprinting! You know I love gellin'! And I LOVE the way these stencils print!
The above print was made using a dirty gel plate, aren't those crusty bits yummy?
To see how the stencils looked by themselves as a straight design, I grabbed a few canvases I'd started backgrounds on and did some tests. Metatron's Cube got some tinted Texture Paste squished through it, to add some dimension, then rubbed with a little Inka Gold in Copper. Really hard to photograph because of the metallic/iridescence, the angle makes it look like a different color altogether! A little magical...
I used Seed of Life on another canvas I had laying around, I believe I just stenciled it with some black Media Acrylic paint and a makeup wedge, over an existing red splotch. Can I pick a favorite child? Seed of Life is it!
My most recent project was an art journaling page. I am a member of Journal52 and every week we get a couple prompts to inspire us. That particular week the prompt was "monochrome." That was difficult for me because I love color. I started by drawing a girls face, in a style taught by Effy Wild. I used Aquarelle Water Soluble Graphite Pencils to draw and shade the girl. When I liked her well enough, I decided to use the stencils for a background. (A little backwards... but that's me, ha!) I simply used a light coating of Black Pan Pastels, to make it look like shades of gray, and layered the stencils. So easy and looks great.
When I was done with my monochromatic page, all that gray made me sad. So I found this great quote and added some colorful rub-on flowers to the bottom. I'm a rebel.
That's all I'm going to show you for now, but stay tuned to THIS blog the next few weeks when the Design Team shows you what they did with these stencils!
Follow the blog hop, I will remind you and provide a link each day on Facebook and Twitter. Leave a comment on THEIR blog for a chance to win! Leave a comment on THIS blog post too! Tell me which stencil is your favorite design, and leave your contact info so I can contact you in case you win. Good luck and enjoy!
