What can I say, I love Mary’s Maps. Her stencils, her paintings, her lovely spirit. It was with such anticipation that I tackled this hop and I can tell we are all excited by how many of us there are to play with all of these fabulous map stencils.
I kept feeling the pull of heart all through this project as you will see below. I began by tracing and filling in with graphite pencil the entire stencil….it’s alot of graphite…
I sprayed it several times with fixative and mounted it on a cardboard substrate. I used Mary’s Map Stencil L200
I had some gorgeous hand made paper that fit perfectly with my heart-full idea.
Tearing the paper randomly I created a frame for the map.
Please visit all the other artists in the hop to see what amazing projects they develop. There are four stencils, so you will see a great variety of things with this group.
