Welcome to another Stencil Test Drive
featuring the Hands Stencil L179
by Jessica Sporn.
I have always had a 'thing' about hands.
Hands are frequently a design element in my Daily.
And if you know me...
You know I am ALL about my Daily.
I use my Daily to play in... but as a bonus....
It is a chronicle of my life.
An illustration of the world around me.
My own version of 'Project Life'.
What better place to describe and illustrate our family reunion last month.
Family is important....
So here is my Family Tree.
Jessica's hands are perfect for this.
I hope years from now my kids will look back on this spread
and remember those connections
and smile at the memories.
But I didn't stop there!
Also in my Daily.....
My hand traced alongside smaller hands
and some appropriate song lyrics!
And in my TEACH Journal......
I want to be able to show students how to incorporate
stencils with their own art and journaling.
In this spread I took Jessica's hands and applied them three ways.
I also took a section of a Maria McGuire stencil called
Stitch a Greek Border Stencil L198
and played with some of the elements....
Adding and subtracting.....
This is my favorite!
These hands can probably be adapted to hold just about anything!
So let's give a hand to Jessica Sporn
for coming up with this incredibly versatile stencil!
(har har har)
I will be using these hands many times over!
Now go see what the other Hop Artists did with this stencil!
