OCD with stencils & 3rd place in the kids comp…

hi everyone! 🙂

well, as the title says, Ive gone a bit crazy with the stencil thang. 🙂 Discovered scrap booking aisle (never scrapbooked in my life- well actually, I was doing all that with my photo albums WAYYYYY back, like in the 80’s & 90’s -you should see my Europe trip album its a masterpiece creatively!-before anyone ever marketed the idea with paraphenalia to sell with it!) at our local Warehouse store and flipped out! omg, sooooooooooooo good for art, the stencils are negatives but i dont care, in fact i like it….. bought one for a whole $1.99 *GASPS* and boy, hours & hours of creative pleasure!

Ready? (these are experiments, some unfinished, some maybe finished, not sure….)

and finally the piece de resistance!…………..

LOVE this! love, need, want more stencils! SO, going to make my own. *satisfied grin*.

Did a bit more on this one below, which im finding really cathartic… work on it bit by bit, its my ‘inbetween paintings’ painting.

And finally, I got 3rd place in an online art competition, called ‘For Children’- title speaks for itself really, with this:

really special for me, because this was one of the ones I did for my daughters, alot of love went into it.

  1. Major love for stencil piece number 2. All the movement within movement with color and shape… somehow reminds me of an exotic moonlit garden. It’s great to see how much inspiration you can get from a single shape.
    Congrats on your “For Children” kudos!

    1. thankyou! 🙂 x
      exactly! (re inspiraiton from a single shape), I find ‘limiting’ myself this way, is actually expanding and more creative than usual -if thats possible! LOL! thanks for the comment on #2, its a fave of mine too, was done in literally 10 mins, those types are often the best eh.
