My name is Jenny Manno and I have been an art teacher for over 25 years and I could not wait to get these stencils into my hot little hands!! I am THRILLED to have had the opportunity to work and play with these GORGEOUS StencilGirl stencils!! I used some of my all-time FAVORITE mediums to create this week’s HOW TO TUESDAY’S lesson for my YouTube channel. When I combined these stencils with Stabilo Carbothello chalk pastel pencils, Pan Pastels, Gesso, black and white charcoal I knew that I had a winning combination.
I am an abstract portrait artist. I practice and explore the process of making mixed media portraits with a plethora of medium choices….and Stencils are an amazing “GO TO” option when creating abstract portraits/artwork. The opportunities are endless because the StencilGirl stencils are so versatile and play alongside other mediums beautifully. They bring depth, texture, energy, and personality to a piece and always have an element of surprise.
It is my honor to get the opportunity to share with you another way to use StencilGirl® Products.
