A Very Berry Giveaway

Jill K. Berry Stencils Blog Hop

I am so very happy to be a part of a blog hop, promoting a new line of stencils created by artist and author Jill K. Berry - she of Personal Geographies: Explorations in Mixed-Media Mapmaking fame. I had the pleasure to have met Jill when I was out in Colorado earlier this year and am not surprised that she has created these beauties. After a short time with Jill, I realized that her imagination has no limits.

Jill currently has a four-stencil set that is available from Artistcellar.


Her new line of stencils are based on her own abstracted calligraphic writing and are called TEXTures. They are unique and very cool.


I used one of the four stencils to create the background above...which I turned into the mixed media piece below.

Imaginary Letters
Sold. Thank you!

To celebrate the release of Jill's stencils, I am sponsoring a giveaway. All you need to do is leave a comment on this post, including your email address, to be eligible to win one, four-stencil set as pictured above. Comment by end of day on December 14th, at which time I will chose the winner randomly.

I am just one of the many stops on this blog hop. I hope you are able to take the time to visit everybody!

11/30 Jill Berry
12/04 You Are Here
