And a giveaway!
UPDATE: 9/28 ... Congratulations Kim! You won the giveaway. Email me with your snal mail.
I've been an admirer of Beatrice Coron's work for some years now. It was a bit of a thrill, really, to play with her images. These stencils are so cool. The stencils are available here on Artistcellar's site and here at Artcellar's blog is the list of artists participating in the hop plus a bunch of great ways to use these stencils.
I decided to reference Beatrice's papercutting work and use traditional Mexican papercutting techniques to create a Dia de los Muertos banner. I love these stencils! They are beautifully detailed and lighthearted. Here is the YouTube video. The supplies are listed below. I'm giving away a set of these stencils so leave a comment to throw your name in the hat!
Have fun! I can see taking these alot further. Some white accents? Sequins and more glitter. If you are doing them on fabric, using some quilting or embroidery. Don't forget to leave a comment. International shipping is fine :) Yay! I'll pick a name on Sun, 9/28. Good Luck.
