My Brand New Stencils Are Here | Come Watch the Technique Video

Have you wanted to create portraits in your work or art journals?

Have you wanted the process to feel easy, fun and even relaxing?

Maybe you just want some new inspiration and some new lines to get you started?

I am so excited to tell you about my brand new stencils from Stencil Girl Products and how this new tool can say YES to each of the questions above.

Last year I was approached by Mary Beth Shaw of Stencil Girl Products to use my original art in their gorgeous stencils. As we were looking through my art and trying to decide which pieces would bring you the most fun in your creating we knew the faces, florals and mark making from Eyes Wide Open would be the perfect place to begin.

    I love these and that they were created from your Eyes Wide Open piece – it’s one of my favorites 🙂

    Great video! I’ve never been able to create a portrait of any kind but you give me hope! 🙂

    Thank you Jeanne for sharing your techniques and ideas for using your new stencil. They are all wonderful.

    I always learn so much when I watch you work! Thank you for being so generous with sharing your techniques and even suggesting other things we could do along the way. I can’t wait to try these out!
    (One question, if you have a minute to answer – what fabric do you use for the stitching? Do you just use pencil to draw the stencil onto the fabric? Thank you!)

      Hello! Yes, I use a pencil or you can use a fabric pen but I don’t. I stitch on really anything that is not too thin like muslin and not too thick like heavy canvas. I use drill/duck cloth, vintage French linen, raw canvas etc.


    Hi Jeanne,
    I just grabbed your Gathered playlist and I cannot believe you have Closer to Fine on it. I just belted that song out the other night! I’m so happy to have been introduced to you via Sketchbook Revival. Can’t wait to get caught up on all that content to start on yours.
