Mixed Media Art & Jewelry by our StencilClub Voices with the August 2016 Stencils

Hi Art Lovers, Carol here, introducing our August StencilClub Voices: 

Terry Garrett, Lorraine Vogel, and Mary Thoma! 

I've been brimming with excitement over these Voices projects and sure appreciate each of them taking the time to share their talents.

Our Voices artists worked with paper, clay, and canvas to create art with the "Here, There, and Everywhere" stencil set Mary Nasser designed for August 2016 StencilClub.

Carousel Book by Terry Garrett

Terry said he had "big fun" making a variation of a carousel book.

The black silhouettes aren't stencils, they are cut out of black card stock.

You can discover more about Terry on his Whisperwood Art Works blog.

Necklace by Lorraine Vogel

Lorraine made a clay veneer (pictured below) and then cut out her pendant shapes.
Starting with the largest stencil, archival inks were applied to white polymer clay then a dark gray ink was applied with a sponge. The middle sized stencil was then laid over the first inking, where strips of aqua and lime green inks were applied overall. Dark gray was applied in the circle areas. Lastly, the smallest stencil was laid over the veneer and the same general strips of aqua and lime green inks were applied. After inking, the circles and dots were pressed into the clay and filled with white acrylics.

You can connect with more of Lorraine's work via her Wired Orchid Facebook page.

Mixed-media Watercolor Painting by Mary Thoma

Mary writes: 

Hello StencilClub members, this is my first "Voices" contribution. The artwork is mixed media on 9X12" Strathmore 140 lb. watercolor paper. I used spray inks, mini gelli plates, and acrylic paint with the August StencilClub stencils. 

For a more detailed outline of how I produced this piece please check out my Make It In Oklahoma blogspot

Carol again. I'm diggin' the August stencils and feeling oh-so-lucky I get to spy these works of art first. The original StencilGirl, Mary Beth Shaw, and I are thrilled to share this inspiration with you!
