It's been a banner year for stencils and I'm enjoying the opportunity to play with the new designs coming my way from Artistcellar.com. Lisa and Michael are releasing more wonderful designs this month named Quasicrystals in a set of four individual stencils: Penrose, Fibo,Infra, & Quasi. Naturally you can purchase them separately. Click here for details and images. I used a combination of them on my pieces and found that they played really well together allowing me to make a tonal background for the piece above very easily. I varied the colors of my night sky with Iridescent silver, Iridescent Pearl, and Titantium white Fluid Acrylics by Golden.
In this piece I did an abstracted playful design, once again layering colors and stencil patterns from the Quasicrystals set. I even mixed some blue glitter into my regular gel gloss to create a textured glitter surface when I pushed it through the stencil. Loved that effect!
Here is the blog hop schedule! You know the drill. Visit the blogs, leave a message and you'll up your chances to win a set of stencils. I'll be drawing my winner on Monday April 21st. Looking forward to hearing from you!
