StencilGirl Guest Designer Jodi Ohl

Hi Everyone!

My name is Jodi Ohl and I’m a mixed media artist, writer and
work shop instructor out of central North Carolina. I’m here today to feature

my friend Seth Apter’s newest StencilGirl stencil called Numbers
release with a project that I created that combined printmaking, collage

and mixed media techniques. 

  Seth’s stencils are great because each and every one has a variety of elements that
can be used together or on their own. In a sense, you actually get a variety of
stencils all in one.  One useful way to work on a project is to find a few areas that you want to work on and in essence, create your own surface design with those elements within Seth's stencils.

I used a variety of paints which I will feature in the
supplies, but do know that you can use whatever colors you are drawn to. 

Because I knew I was going to do a landscape composition of some sort, I went
with some earthy tones as well as some of my favorite bright colors such as
teal and green gold.   You’ll see in thevideo I also finished off the piece by enhancing the colors and the overalldesign using Silks Acrylics. I completed the project by adding an additional 3D element by  spreading on modeling crème
by Viva over a few stencil areas, repeating some of the patterns I created my
papers with. 

I was left with a lot of extra papers which I’m okay with
because they will surely be utilized for other journal or collage projects down
the road.

Please take a look at the video and enjoy creating a simple
mixed media collage that is fun,  quick
and easy.
