16x12; mixed media on paper

I have been out of practice for using stencils in my artwork, but when The Crafters Workshop came calling, I said, why yes! I would love to try out some of your stencils!

How to incorporate stencils into my abstract art is a little challenging to me. I don't want them to look deliberate..or uniform..so I take extra care to spray or paint through them haphazardly. I also don't want them to look like someone else's art..I take bits and pieces of the stencil and lay them throughout the art and I think I overcome those challenges pretty well.

Gracious Jaime over at The Crafter's Workshop sent me a bunch of stencils...that I want to share with you! Leave me a comment and list one of the ways you will use the stencils if you win the drawing. I will pick one winner on May 9th (international entries welcome!!) for a package of 7 brand new 12x12" stencil templates. (One entry per person; entry must be a comment on this post; must leave a valid email address so I don't have to go on a hunt to find you.)

Good luck...tell your friends to stop by too! Thank you for reading my blog. Stop by Friday to see some more stencil art.
