I am going to confess..... I have piles of art books. Everything from watercolor to collage, and everything in between. Art books are like art supplies- correct?! When you see a new one, you must have it for the studio?
So as my art book pile grows, I do have to say that I have a few that are favorites. You know the ones, dog-ear'd pages, words high-lighted and never where it is supposed to be because you re-read one chapter or section again and laid the book down somewhere else now. One of those kinds of favorite books for me is a book by Jane Davies called Abstract Painting: The Elements of Visual Language.
Let me show you a little about why this book is a favorite and how I use some of my StencilGirl stencils.
Stencils I used:
|Speckles and Spots by Carolyn Dube|
|May 2015 StencilClub by Mary Beth Shaw|
|August 2013 StencilClub by Mary Beth Shaw|
I hope you enjoyed watching my process and how I use the stencils and seeing a glimpse into one of my favorite art books!
