TANGLED PODS in the Hands of Artist Jennifer Armstrong

Artist Jennifer Armstrong  has used stencils in creating this panoramic study in her moleskin art journal; her foreground was established with one of the many facial stencils designed by artist Pam Carriker.

Jennifer's foundation layer was laid down using my 9"x12" stencil Tangled Pods.  She did a beautiful job of incorporating this background with her foreground.  In the close-up below, which highlights the right half of this artwork, the stencil's imprint can be more clearly seen:   

What excites me most about this work of Jennifer's is that here she illustrates one of the main reasons I got into stencil-designing -- stencils are an easy way to create unique backgrounds that add interest, character and unity to art.  Artist Jan Sitts uses this technique, to name only one.

The stencil Tangled Pods itself looks like this:
