Playing with Artistcellar Stencils

I haven't really used stencils in my art work before, so this month's chunky page theme was something new for me.  My dear friend, Lisa, generously gave me a "Venice" stencil which her company, Artistcellar, carries.  Who knew the canals of Venice would make such a stunning graphic?  I played with metallic purple and gold spray inks (which are the colors of Carnevale di Venezia).  The stencil is 8.5" x 11", so I was able to make my chunky pages two-sided by cutting two 8 x 4" strips and folding them in half.  But I still felt that my pages were missing something...That's when I came up with the idea to use the Comedy/Tragedy masks to decorate my pages. 


  1. Love what you did with the stencils and your chunky pages! Aren't Artistcellar stencils great!!

  2. Those stencils are really cool. Who'd a thunk?
    Love the masks too.
