Stencil giveaway

Last week I had a chance to play.
Yep, I really did.
30" x 24" Mixed Media, Mary Beth Shaw
And it was so darn awesome I realized just how much I had missed playing. Fingers and hands and feet and hair (oops) with patches of paint. Because that is what I do, I am a bit of a pig. I was playing with pattern, which is one of my very very favorite things ever. I used Michelle Ward's stencils, all different sizes of her Marrakech stencil to be specific. This global inspired painting was the result of my play.

I used the stencils both as a painting tool and a cutting guide for collage parts. I used other smaller stencils to create pattern on top of the Marrakech bits. Layer after layer after layer.

So, over at the brand spankin' new StencilTalk Blog, we are having a giveaway. This is your last day to enter. It is pretty fab if I do say so myself, we are giving away a Gelli and a package of 10(!!!!) stencils. Scurry on over, you need to enter before midnight. Cause I know how you all love stencils.

Doodle Mania

I have always been a doodler. It goes way way back with me, remember those brown bag book covers we used to make for our schoolbooks - did anybody else do that? I used to absolutely cover them edge to edge with my doodles. This is perhaps why I can't remember anything from history class, ahem.

Anyhoo, I digress.....CLICK HERE to see my Floral Doodles over at the Sketchbook Challenge.
