January is California dreaming for me! Lots and lots of classes, classes, classes!
- San Jose: I'm teaching two fantastic classes at A Work of Heart. January 3 is The Stenciled Face and January 4 is Sketchbook: Yes, You Can Draw!
- Anaheim: If you're going to be at CHA in January, I hope you'll take my "Cutest Cards Ever" ScanNCut class on Saturday night (January 10). You can find all of the information HERE.
- Santa Ana: I'm teaching a brand new and totally awesome two-day class at Jenny Doh's Studio Crescendoh January 17 & 18. It's called Magazine Magic.
So, come on out and play with me. If you're local, come for the day and if you're from somewhere else, book a hotel and hang out for an art weekend!
And now onto our fabulous guest post!
Thanks so much, Julie, for having me here as your guest today. I know many of us have played with ‘reduction stenciling’ before with paint and ink. By that I mean using stencils to remove color from a page, usually with a baby wipe or paper towel.
I wanted to find another way to use some my ever-growing collection of washi tape, and it occurred to me that you can also do reduction stenciling with an exacto knife.
Think of your stencils as the equivalent of a collection of paper punches. This single hexagon stencil is equal to six different paper punches, with a size range from ½” all the way to 3” wide.
