Stars and more Stars

Hi, I was lucky enough to win the Star Stencil designed by Jessica Sporn which measures 9 x 12 inches.  Available at www.stencilgirlproducts.com  Jessica is a fabulous artist and creates the most wonderful mixed media pieces of art.

The Future is something which everyone reaches at the rate of sixty minutes an hour,
whatever he does, whoever he is.   Quote by CS Lewis from The Screwtape Letters.
This is a page from my Stenciling Journal using the star stencil as background.  Other products used:
Gesso, Acrylic Paint and Whisper Pens.  Stamps by Paper Artsy and Chapel Road.  A Tim Holtz Die Cut and the hands are from the Graphic Fairy.  The quote on the bottom right describes exactly why I designed this..........lol

Size A4

This how the stencil looked before I cut it up for tags ready for Carolyn's last free workshop.


If you get the chance to use Carolyn's free workshop of 6 lessons am sure you will have lots of fun as well as learning new ideas. (see my sidebar for link).

Hoping you are having a goodly week so far and enjoying your arts and craftings.  Take care of yourselves and thank you for taking the time to visit me.  Hugs Annette xx

PS.  This Thursday on my Painting Blog am showing 2 new paintings, which are based on the very colourful  CHAKRA dreams.  I needed a break from painting Water and treated myself to some fun.  Hope you will pop over and see me on Thursday and then you can tell me what you think.  When I showed them to my husband his remarks were Weird but Colourful..................!!
