I am Kim Collister and I am happy to be here today to share with you my art cards and journal pages I created using stencils from StencilGirl® and Cyanotype prints.
For this project, I couldn't resist using the face stencils by Pam Carriker. Once you get the prints made you want to use, copy them on copy paper which is thinner and easier to use for collage work. Next, I found some jumbo art cards to use as the base of my project. I prepared them with some clear gesso and added a bit of color to start with using gelatos.
Then just begin tearing your prints and adding the faces to the cards. I also made cyanotype prints of other StencilGirl® stencils that would add to my background like the Travel Note Mini and Quatrefoil 6 that I placed on top of each other for an instant layered effect.
Tear and add prints and other embellishments until you have a look that you are happy with. You can see on some of the cards that I also added some of my cyanotype foliage prints, they make a great mix with the stencil prints.
Love Face Stencil
Love Face Stencil (this one looks different than the one above because I flipped the stencil over).
On this one, I made two different exposures of the same face and cut them in half
Here are some examples of the faces I created for a journal page by cutting the edges from the face stencils using the Truth Face and Honor Face on the cyanotype paper. Then I added parts of the Scribbles Dots Dash Stencil.
This one I used the Laugh Face cutting off the frame and using different exposure times. You could leave it like it is, but I don't think I can do it. Laugh Face
Another Journal Page below using the Create Face Stencil, Tell Your Story , Scribbles Dots Dash , and the Travel Mini Note Stencil.
I hope you will check out my post and the ton of inspiration over at StencilGirl® .Grab some of their awesome stencils while you are there and discover for yourself the endless possibilities of playing with stencils and cyanotype prints.
