PRAYER FLAGS -- a Brand-New Stencil at www.StencilGirlProducts.com!

 
Today Mary Beth Shaw celebrates her birthday with a special event -- check here -- www.StencilGirlProducts.com -- and here -- www.stencilgirltalk.com. 

And, by way of coincidence, Mary Beth's Fractured Glass stencil goes perfectly with my brand-new stencil Prayer Flags.  Pair them up and see for yourself!

Or try it with Daniella Woolf's Feathers and Lace

In forming part of my background on the artwork below, I used three 9"X12" stencils from StencilGirlProducts --  Daniella's, cited above, as well as Crackle by Nathalie Kalbach and Large Hall stencil by Mary Beth Shaw.



Of several techniques that I used to create this artwork on canvas, the first technique was what I call the "stencil-and-stain" method.  Anyone who wants step-by-step details of this technique -- just visit StencilGirlTalk and check out the right sidebar.  Once a member, you can ask for the June 2015 StencilClub package, which will give you everything you need to know. 

Note:  Be aware that the stencil-and-stain technique will stain your stencils.  Altho some stain can be removed afterward, not all of it can.  This doesn't bother some of us, who end up with beautiful stencils that can be cut up and used as collage elements.

Below are two close-ups showing details in the artwork above--



Other canvases made with the same combination of techniques and the same Prayer Flags stencil are below --

In upcoming posts, I will be showing 4 greeting card covers made with this brand-new 9"X12" stencil Prayer Flags.  These posts will have step-by-step photos covering the methods I used; meanwhile, here's a sneak-peak at the finished cards --
