Hello friends! Wow, lately it’s blog hop central over here! I love getting involved in testing out new products, giving out shout outs to awesome artists and shops and share with you how I create my art! :) (If you’re a supplier of art supplies and ever want me to demo them for you or be part of a blog hop, do email me! (willowing AT

So without further ado! I was invited to be part of a blog hop to show off the fabulous new stencils produced by These specific stencils are the ‘Artistcellar Signature Series” designed by Jane Davenport! Jane is a good friend of mine, a fabulous artist and also teaches on Life Book this year! Her lessons are SO super popular. :) Her lesson went up only 2 weeks ago. :) (Just a reminder that you can still sign up to Life Book – there is enough time to catch up!)

Anyhoo, I personally love her art too and was delighted to hear that she had some stencils out. You get 4 of them in a pack and they feature faces and facial features in her style that you can use and play with in your art journal (or in a painting). The cool thing is that even though the designs are clearly and recognisably Jane’s, when I started working over the stencils, I found the faces came out ‘me’ looking. :) So you can still make the faces really your own and not be too worried that the face is ‘too someone else’s style’ if you know what I mean!? :) I did a little video of the process below.



Artistcellar are giving a way 1 set of the stencils to one of you!
