New Stencil Girl stencils by Seth Apter

Recently I got to play with Seth Apters new stencils for Stencil Girl. They are really cool and edgy- definite air of street art vibe to them. 

I decided to use the stencils in a fabric project I was working on. I wanted to create a big fabric flag for my back deck  to hide an area in the porch. 

I used spray paints and acrylics to create a background and then painted over areas to create a focal point. I'm quite happy with how the project turned out and love the new stencils.

Painting with Tucker

Happy 4th of July everyone! Today I decided was the day that Tucker would start painting. I've wanted to do this for awhile and this morning my brain said, "today". So I got out a canvas, put on his apron and we played. Mind you, I have to help him, but i let his and my hand work together, loosely,  to create something. The first part of the painting, I closed my eyes to see what we got. It either looks like a cute bunny or a cute puppy. Anyway it was a lot of fun, a bit tiring too, for both of us, but we will do more.
