Hello, I hope you are all well. Today I’m sharing a little she art using an assortment of stencils to add dimension and texture. I love creating she art girls and these little cuties were created on 5″ x 7″ canvas boards. I’m going to give you a quick step out on how too.
But first a couple of the stencils I used:
6×6 doodling templates – mini impressions
6×6 doodling templates – mini butterfly collage
6×6 doodling templates – hourglass
6×6 doodling templates – mini repeating pods
Step 1: Grab some canvas boards any size you like to work with. I’m using 5×7 boards. Use an assortment of papers and collage, using a clear drying decoupage glue. Allow to dry.
Step 2: Grab some texture paste and stencils. Randomly stencil all over, mix it up by using different designs. Allow to dry.
Step 3: Using sprays and inks and randomly paint your inks on. Allow to dry.
Step 4: Use an assortment of stamps and a permanent ink and randomly stamp.
Step 5: Cut out each of your girls using scraps of pattern paper and glue down. Allow to dry.
Step 6: Paint in her skin color and hair. Add texture to her dress using a stencil and texture paste. Allow to dry.

Step 7: Color your stencil design in using ink. Add a short quote using random sticker words. Painted a flower in hair and allow to dry.
Step 8: Once everything is dry. Add the rest of your details using gel pens, rub-ons, bling and stamps etc.
and the end result. You can now frame these canvas or send to a friend. I’m going to take these in and get postcards made up and send some hello’s to special friends.
Thank you for popping by today and I hope I have inspired you to have a wee play with your stencils.
