Quasi-Crystal Stencil Giveaway!

Artistcellar has yet another new set of stencils and wants to give a set away! They are called “Quasicrystal.” I used Quasi and Infra on my page, which was partially collaged by Connie, my friend who made me this journal. You can see the papers she put in on the left, and the handsome geeky dude on the right. He was there, staking his space. I made him a love interest. She is a tiny bit scary. Am not sure why.

This is another page of healing in my journal I did with the Gera Stencils.   Joan Miró and I have been friends for ages. I am inspired by the fact that his artistic...

TEXTures Stencil Launch and Giveaway!

I have exciting news!   I have been busy, and one of the things I have been doing is designing stencils for Artistcellar. Their stencils are both beautifully made and designed,  and I am excited to be the first of their “Artist Signature Series.” My stencil set is called “TEXTures”. There are four stencils, all made from my calligraphy, which is pretty much letters telling a story that might not be legible. They are meant to add text and texture to your pages or projects that might need some storytelling. The four styles are Runes, Roadmap, Rivermap and Romans....
