Our talented and sweet StencilClub Voices never fail to inspire with the range of ideas they come up with and create. Always a treat :)
Marge Taylor, Lucy Medeiros-Tyson, and Sherie Weiser Eddy are deserving of applause and a closer look at the doll, paintings, wall hangings, and art journals they created with the Suzani Set by Gwen Lafleur.
Marge Taylor's Art Tags & Art Journals
Marge writes: I really like the Suzani Set; they were very inspiring and I’ve been trying to make a series of tags using both stencils and stamps. I also wanted to including some uplifting images in my journal.
For the vase, I used the 4” stencil on card stock with light modeling paste. After the paste dried, I painted it and applied a gloss medium to give it a “vase” look. This is my version of a still life
Lucy Medeiros-Tyson's Dragonfly and Other Paintings
Lucy writes: When I saw these Suzani Stencils I thought they were so pretty. I set about playing around with them. The more I played the more ideas that came and soon I had several items to share with Stencil Club Voices.
For Dragonfly, I used the stencil and it's parts to compose a garden scene. I also used a multitude of mixed media supplies ie; acrylic paint & ink, crackle paste, collage, clear gesso, and more. I also used stencils by Valarie Sjodin's Swallows take Flight S614 and Rae Missingman's Frazzled and Ruffled Feathers M073.
In Purple Rain and Turquoise Dream, I switched it up and used Dina Wakely acrylic gloss spray first on watercolor paper. When dry I then used the stencil on top filling in with black gesso.
In Watercolor Splash, I used a technique I learned from Mary Beth Shaw. I applied heavy black gesso on watercolor paper with a spatula through the stencil, removed the stencil, then let dry completely. I painted watercolors in and around the design, I loved the results.
Sherie Weiser Eddy's Doll and Fabric Wall Hanger
Sherie writes: The doll decorated with the Suzani Set is a small, recycled dish soap bottle(body). Made using; Seth Apter’s acrylic sprays on copy paper, a vintage tv fuse, and a polymer clay face (I used a mold, and painted it) The wings and necklace also has bits of stenciled paper. Her hair is also dyed sheep locks. Also some doodling with a gold Sigma pen.
The fabric wall hanging was made using Seth Apter’s iZink Ices and acrylic sprays, dyed sheep locks, hand-beading, along with some slow and machine stitching! The acrylic sprays and Ices work well on fabric too!
Don't you think these projects are fantastic?
