StencilGirl® Stencil Portrait by Artist Pamela Vosseller

Hi, everyone! Pamela Vosseller here! I’ve always been a bit of Tomboy, and I think that is why I believe we all have an inner superhero waiting to let its warrior of Good shine. I remember growing up watching some of my favorite TV shows from National Geographic about the beautiful Indigenous tribes. They had the most amazing headpieces, which inspire my creativity to this day.

In this StencilGirl® project, we will create a whimsical female portrait that is wearing a warrior headpiece designed using StencilGirl® Stencils. I love creating on recycled surfaces; it is especially helpful when you’re on a budget, but I also find those surfaces to have the best texture. So, in this project, we will be using a 12x12 piece of recycled cardboard as our substrate; however, you can always just use paper or a canvas.

I hope you enjoy this project, and I look forward to seeing your warrior portrait.

Circle Bubbles

Garden Flowers Tile
