Playing with Jessica's Stencil

Hi, brrrr its cold here today...........I won a Hebrew Calligraphy Stencil from Jessica and its a really interesting stencil.  Jessica has made some amazing projects using the same stencil and there are a few artists test driving it and getting beautiful results


Apart from the torn page from The Merchant of Venice, all the rest of the items used on this bag are from recycled packaging..........the stones were taken off an old card of mine and the wool was used to tie up a parcel which had been sent to me................



Here is the stencil in its completeness.  Jessica sent the stencil in a hard brown envelope so I cut it and used gesso over the stencil.



Beautiful, isn't it.  The text reads.............

May God Bless You and Keep You
May God cause the Divine Light to Shine Upon You and be Gracious to You.
May God Turn Toward You and Grant You Peace............ Number 6: 24-26

Am so happy with this beautiful stencil and will be using it on other projects.
Thank you for calling in, take care of yourselves, hugs Annette xx
