“It’s an artist’s duty to reflect the times in which we live.” ~ Nina Simone
These stencils reflect what is going on in society and some phrases I have been using in my artwork for many years that I wanted to memorialize.
FRIEND SHIP is broken into two words because I envision a big ship with all of my friends on it.
ACT LOUDER because actions speak louder than words.
EAT CAKE probably brings a smile to your face. I have put this phrase into many art pieces throughout the years. We work hard and do so much, it’s time to rest for a minute and enjoy the cake.
WAKE UP could be for early birds but really, for one a all, a reminder to pay attention.
BE CARE FULL The phrase was suggested to me by another artist, Mystele Kirkeeng, and the meaning, “be full of care,” makes my heart happy.
You can get the set from StencilGirl Products for $20 or the individual stencils for $5 each. (There’s a hole punched in the corner of each one so you can loop them on a ring.)
