Passages, Doors to New Experiences with Shel C and Peg Robinson

When thinking about this month's theme for our StencilGirl Creative Team 'Passages' Peg and I talked at length about the idea of passages through time and into experiences. About how each leap forward in our lives seem to take on a certain framework. We wondered about how we could express these thoughts and ideas using StencilGirl stencils. Then we came up with the idea of using stencils that have doors or window frames. How moving through our experiences is like moving through openings in time. We decided on stencil designs from Pam Carriker and Carolyn Dube.

I made my mixed media collage on a 11X14 canvas flat panel using papers made while gel printing with Pan Pastel and acrylic paint and royalty-free photos that I altered and printed in black and white. 

After collaging on all the various layers of paper made with the stencils, I added the photos on the top. I then finished the piece with pan pastel tinting over the black and white photos and background. 

I also did mark making and blending using various black and white pens and pencils. I added a quote I thought fit the piece perfectly using a white acrylic marker.

Peg had a great time with this challenge. She created a number of passages, windows, and doors using Stencils from Carolyn Dube, Pam Carriker, and the StencilClub.

First, she created a background on a two-page spread. Then she stenciled the passageways.

By adding products from the distress line and Izinc pigments from Seth Apter she was able to achieve the look she wanted.

Here is a video of the process:
