Hello, Creatives! Kirsten here with a fun project using the exclusive November StencilClub designs by Nancy Curry and Mary Beth Shaw! These stencils are called "Honoring Hundertwasser".
Hundertwasser was an Austrian artist who worked with bright colors, organic forms, and a connection with nature. When I was an elementary school art teacher he was a favorite artist to explore and my students loved creating art inspired by him.
Instead of creating a book this month, I decided to create several whimsical neighborhood compositions. These playful pieces can be applied to greeting cards, canvases, and, of course, books!
I had fun layering and assembling the little neighborhoods. Mary Beth's bold designs are perfect for layering and Nancy's houses and trees have many options for variety and whimsy.

these are adorable. such fun but quite a bit of work, esp the fussy cutting. great way to use these stencils together . I tend to use my stencils one at a time forgetting they can be combined on one page. silly me.ReplyDelete
What delightful art you've made with these stencils! Thanks for the inspiration, Kirsten.ReplyDelete
Art Bar mentioned you had a gelli giveaway going on. I’ve never heard of gelli printing and I’d love to learn more about it so that I can offer it to my children and the kids I work with at school (I’m always looking for fun, cool, newReplyDelete
