I do so love my job you guys, because I get to give away so many goodies to you lovelies. :) Eeee! And I get to make pretty art and show you!
(BTW, another give-away is coming up next week, I’ll be giving away one of Claudine Hellmuth‘s classes, or well, a space on one of her classes, excitement! woohoo!). LOL, it’s give-away central around here lol! :)
But today, I want to introduce you to a new product by Artistcellar! They make awesome stencils (hem hem, I designed some too for them, go check them out here for UK/ Europe, here for US/ Canada/ S.America, here for Australia/ Asia/ Africa) and they’ve come out with a really nifty new stencil idea: yes yes, they are: POCKET STENCILS! :) So cute, so handy, so versatile! :D Easy to take out and about for your journal, super duper fun! :)
I made this beautiful Chakra Girl with some of the Chakra Stencils:
and filmed it too, wahay! :) Wanna watch the making of? :) Go for it ->
Materials used in video: Mechanical Pencil by Pentel (Graphgear 1000) lead: 2b, size: 0.9, Watersoluble Crayons (Neocolor II), Brayer, White Gesso, White Acrylics, Posca Pen White, Skin Tone Acrylics, Aquamarkers (mouth and shading), Modelling Paste (Galeria/ Winsor & Newton), Golden High Flow Acrylics (Diarylide Yellow) for the dots), Blending Stump, Collage Papers (random).
Here are some more close ups (took these photos in a dark room late at night, so not the best ones, the contrast isn’t as high as you see in some of these pics, but you get the gist! :))
I LOVE using modelling paste through the stencils and get beautiful textures :)
If you want to win 1 set of the pocket stencils, make sure to leave a comment below and tell me which set speaks to you (which one you’d like to win) and why! :) And thank you, as always, for visiting my blog and cheering me on, you kind person you. I rather heart you. :) <3
