Layered Peony Stencil Tutorial and Giveaway



Last week I introduced you to the new Teacups and Teapot stencil from Stencil Girl Products.  This week, I would like you to meet Layered Peonies and Leaves.  Again - this design was inspired by a conversation with Judy Shea, who said - "I wish there was a flower stencil with big flowers."  She really is my muse in addition to my good friend!

You can create flowers three different ways with this stencil -- maybe even more.

Here are two projects I created since the release of the stencil!  The one on the left is in my art journal - the one on the right is on a collaged canvas board.




And here's a video tutorial to introduce you to to the peony stencil.


You can also watch Layered Peonies Tutorial on You Tube here!

On Saturday, a group of women came to a Meetup Class at my house to make mixed media canvases using this stencil.  Check out all the different flowers - no two alike!










 I hope you're inspired to create something with the Layered Peonies stencil.  I would love to see it!

GIVEAWAY! Want to win your own copy of the Layered Peony stencil?  I will send one stencil out to someone who comments on this post!  You have until Friday at 9AM ET to comment.  Let me know you follow my blog, like my FB page, and/or "Liked" the stencil at Stencil Girl, for up to 3 extra chances to win!

UPDATE:  The winner is Elizabeth Jones - send me a message (to jessicabethsporn at gmail dot com) with your snail mail address and it will be on its way to you!

Your comments make me so happy and let me know you were here. I read and treasure every comment and will happily answer any questions as soon as I can.

  29. Jessica, completely unaware of your give away, I have just written a mini blog posts about you over on my own blog, put a link to your video on YouTube and a link to your blog here, I don't have anywhere near the number of followers that you do what I wonder if anyone will find your blog as a result of my little post. I love the way you take a natural stencil and put your own stamp upon it. You are very generous with your videos and sharing your technique. Thank you very much. A fan from across the pond.
