I’M EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE I HAVE A NEW STENCIL COLLECTION
Mono printing has always been a favorite art medium of mine and for as long as I have been printing I have been cutting and preparing my own stencils out of assorted papers and cardboards. I have a fondness for abstract, minimalistic prints and so my hand cut versions of stencils and masks were mostly organic in shape and size.
While I loved the look and feel of my hand cut stencils, the mediums that I added to my printing plate only allowed me to re-use the paper versions a handful of times before I needed to cut replacements. I knew I wanted to create something that I could use over and over again.
This set of Mono Print Stencils and Masks was inspired by my favorite hand cut variations and were created in a way that allows you to work on a variety of printing plate sizes. Whether you are working small and using just one tiny mask or working big and creating larger patterns out of multiple masks you are sure to love this set!
Jump into watercolor with Rae Missigman & Sandi Keene as we explore basic watercolor techniques to add to your mixed media toolbox. Create simple shapes and washes, discover the exciting world of color mixing and how to avoid/work through common difficulties with this challenging medium. Then put your new skills to work as we study leaves and florals and create a Quickstart Blossom piece that mixes watercolor with ArtMarks and collage. Finish up with a start to finish project with Sandi and one from Rae each in their own style.
