Here I created an original mixed media piece of Christmas art using Shawn Petite’s stencils and one of her Collage Paks.
First of all, I added a background color to my canvas. I then built on my background using stencils and adding texture, I used Shawn Petite’s Old World 2 Stencil to add interest and to give a vintage Christmas feel. I drew and cut out a heart shape from old music scores which I then stuck onto my canvas. I added color and texture to the heart by painting with my fingers and then I framed the heart by adding some flowers which have been cut out from collage sheets from Shawn’s Sacred in the Ordinary Collage Pak. I added the poinsettias from Shawn’s Poinsettia and Leaves stencil by using modeling paste to raise them up a little. I then painted the poinsettias and leaves and added highlights and shading to add detail and definition. I then used Shawn’s Holly Jolly Christmas Words stencil to add a focal point to my canvas. I then added a wash to the background to knock it back a little and to allow the foreground to really shine.
I thoroughly enjoyed creating this piece and using Shawn’s products made it fun and easy.
