Welcome to the Stencil Test Drive, featuring the Doors and Windows Stencil and the beautiful art of:
Maria McGuire, and
I designed the Doors and Windows stencil because I was looking for a doors design and couldn't find one! I've already been playing with it quite a bit, as you saw in the last test drive post, and in this post, using Judy Shea's polymer clay heart.
The stencil inspired me to make another altered book. I was also inspired by this beautiful quote by Mother Theresa: "Do small things with great love." I made a video of part of my process. It's my first art video, so please be kind!
I hope you enjoyed the video. I'll get better at them.... I promise! I planned to do some step-outs, but I just found out today that my older daughter, Mariel, in addition to being elected Phi Beta Kapa, has also received a Fulbright Scholarship! She's graduating from William & Mary in May. Needless to say, I've been jumping up and down and shouting from the rooftops since early this evening! Here's a picture of Mariel and me when she was home over winter break. She is a kind, loving person, and she's worked so hard. I am so happy for her!
I leave you with a picture of the entire book cover...
Enjoy the inspired creations of
