Throwback Thursday February 2017 - Fine Paintings and Art Journals

Our team took a new look at a few "older" stencils, Tall Birds, Spiral, Herbs, Feathers and Lattice, Eights, Herringbone Brick, MB's Grid Set 9, and Flowers Version 2

Karen, Kristie, Anna, and me, Carol, created journal pages and art to grace their walls. On to the photos!

Quirky Birds

I really love the quirky little birds here (Tall Birds designed by Terri Stegmiller) and it was a happy accident that the collage papers on the bottom looked like crazy paving stones for them to stand on. 
S110 Tall Birds
L128 Spiral

I love the size of the Spiral stencil from Daniella Woolf, it's perfect for backgrounds and larger areas. I love my quirky little birds they turned out really cute.

If you'd care to step over to Kristie Taylor's Scrapinator blog she'll share how stenciled these paintings.

Nightflowers Under a New Moon

I am captivated by the jungle shapes of Danielle Wolffe's Feathers & Lattice and Eights stencils. 
L139 Feathers & Lattice
L130 Eights

I love how they mimic a busy rainforest, like what I imagine it would look if I were to wholly focus on the shapes while squinting through one eye. 

There are the lines of light from the sunshine, and I feel the sun on my skin, feeling the warmth. Mysterious colourful shadow is present as well.

I like the ways the simple flowers in Cecilia Swatton's small Flowers Version 2 stencil seems to float on a breeze. (You may recognize the central flame as one from StencilClub.)

I chose the colors as a bone-chilling, slushy snow fell outside and I was yearning for spring. How do you chose your colors? By mood? By stencil? By design?

  1. Everyone's art is so beautiful and inspiring and now I more stencils on my list of must haves haha. ❤❤❤

  2. What a delight to see one of my Flowers stencils chosen as one of the art-making tools here -- I love the way their use helps bring up the feeling of a breeze! It always amazes me when an artist finds ways to use my stencils that I had never dreamed of, myself! I'm happily humbled!
