With that in mind, my new collection with PaperArtsy was designed and engineered to work seamlessly with some of my stencils previously released by StencilGirl Products. There two companies were on board and I cannot thank them enough for coming from a place where different companies can actually support each other rather than compete as adversaries. Good people!
These are my new stamps and Wood Chips from PaperArtsy. You can easily see how they work together...
Here are my Insider and Outsider stencil from StencilGirl.
Both collections. Same sizes. Same shapes: square, circle, star, tag and bar. The layers you can create by intermixing all of these products is exponential.
With that in mind, I asked several of my favorite artists to play with all of these products and make magic. Each created two projects and have shared their step-by-step process in tutorials on their blogs. Today I am highlighted the amazing work of Martice Smith II. Join me tomorrow to see what Gwen Lafleur made.
Martice created this wall hanging that served the dual purpose of not only looking amazing but also concealing a secret.
As you can see in the next photo, part of the hanging is hinged - revealing what is at first glance concealed to the eye. I absolutely love art that is interactive because it invites the viewer to become one with the art.
And look at this detail shot of the piece in progress...oh...the texture! And you can see how the Wood Chip and both the Insider and Outsider circle stencils layer so well together.
Martice also created collaged tiles using my stamps, stencils and Wood Chips. You can easily see in this picture how all the shapes work well together.
And there is that texture again...
