StencilGirl Products + Giveaway


I'm so happy to be on the new creative team at StencilGirl Products and thank you all for the support and encouragement about it!  Details and lots of step-out photos for this first project are on the StencilTalk blog today.

When my design team package arrived, I knew right away I had to offer a giveaway as MaryBeth Shaw (StencilGirl herself) included an autographed copy of her book, Flavor for Mixed Media, in the box… and you can be sure I bought my own copy back when it first came out!  MaryBeth is an amazing artist and a down-to-earth soul.

I met MaryBeth last October when I took one of her full-day classes at Art-Is-You Art Retreats in Connecticut, and I'm thrilled to say I'll be one of the instructors there NEXT year, in 2014.

Book Cover

You will love this book and learn so much about mixed media techniques, textures, colors, and layering. Leave a comment here or follow/friend me in one of the many ways outlined in the right-hand sidebar (dark blue buttons) and I will draw a winner on Friday, July 12.  Giveaway is open internationally… I'll ship anywhere.

Please pop on over to the StencilGirl Talk blog for the project details and if you let them know you visited, I'd appreciate it!

I am a writer and did’t really see myself as an “artist” until recently. Art is part of my therapy at this point in my healing journey. Looking at it, learning more about it feeling empowered by other creatives like you and Carolyn is a blessing. Thank you for sharing your talents and inspiration .

    Hi, I love this page. I am very new to journaling/mixed media so I really appreciate it when artists show you how to achieve certain effects by breaking the process down into stages. It makes it much less scarey and appear much more achievable and inspires me to give it a try. Thank you

    Well massive congratulations on all your news Marjie and what a great first project! Of course they need you for next year’s retreat. (Look how far you’ve come in 6 months eh? – worth the apprehension and dedication I’d say). I would LOVE to be in with a chance of winning that fantastic book. Hugs, Jenny xxx
