Stencil Hop Featuring Orly Aveneri Designs

Hello Stencil Lovers.
It's Hop Time once again!
We are truly hucky to have snagged Orly Avineri as a StencilGirl Stencil Artist!
Go check out her blog here.
She is really one-of-a-kind awesome!

I was sent THIS stencil to work with. Hmmmm.....
Very Free Form . This could be interpreted so many ways.




I was fascinated by this face ...or what I took as a face anyways!


I started by making my background.
This time it is washi tape, gessoed lightly,
 and Matte Super Heavy Gel by Liquitex scraped through the stencil
and left overnight for thorough drying.
Lots of background texture!
Then I started playing with Neocolor II Crayons and markers and pens.



I had done some Pam Carriker faces in the past 
and I was tempted to do the same thing here.
But No. 
I played with the faces part of the stencil on several of my journal pages.
So much variation in each one!




I finished these six...and have several more started!






I let my imagination run wild with these faces 
and I only touched the surface!
What Fun!

Thanks for stopping by! 
Go visit all the Hop Artists playing along!

  25. Looks like both Carolyn Dube and you worked with the same stencil with very different results. I just love how artists can take very similar materials and put their own, very personal spin on things.
