Mixed Media Stencil Relief

A little relief please...with stencils.

I like adding texture to my art, and one way I love is creating a relief with stencils.

You can use many things other than just stencils for texture...
like the webbing below I used to create a pattern.  This webbing was from a bag of potatoes that I laid down, used gel medium over it, and then removed the webbing leaving behind a cool pattern relief.

Open up to the possibilities!

Here's a quick little video tutorial on using stencils to create a relief.

I just entered this piece into an international show.
The squares were cut out from a box of chocolates 
and used as a grid patterned stencil...
I like this one so much I've used it in several of my paintings.

We'll be spending time in my upcoming class, Mixed Media Monday
making, using and adding texture with stencils.

If you want to join the class, the information will be up soon on their website. 
It's a six week class on Monday's and starts on February 4, 2019.

Start to a whole New Beautiful Year!
