playing with Jill K Berry's new "TEXTures2" stencils

My artist friend, Jill K. Berry sent me some of her new  TEXTures 2 stencils to play with and I've been having a lot of fun with them. There are (4) different 6x6 stencils in the pack designed by Jill in a collaboration with Artistcellar

Their official name (should you decide to look for them) is "Artistcellar Signature Series Stencils by Jill K Berry and each stencil has its own name which I thought was cool. They are: Picasso, Bird, Gera and Miro. 

I was playing with the stencils in my painting and then in some of my clay sculptures (after the clay had dried and I began painting). The name TEXTures are perfect for them, because I wanted to add texture and dimension into my art and they were perfect for just that! You can do so  much with stencils and if it was warm enough, I'd be outside with them using them with my spray paints.  I also decided to use little sections of one of the stencils to create eyes for my characters which gave them so much more persoality and I'm so happy I decided to do that! I also plan on using some wood icing along with the stencils (just as soon as my order arrives!)

This is one of my clay sculptures that I used one of the stencils on. The size, 6x6 was perfect for this since my sculpture isn't big, so it was easy to put the stencil on and create more texture into my work. 

Jill is generously giving away a set of her new stencils to one of my readers. So just leave a comment on this post and then I will pick a winner after the blog hop is over.
