Happy Friday Everyone!! Inspiration comes in many forms but for me it’s nature. Over the past year going only to work and coming home to my art room, I found that most of my art is nature. I love Spring and Summer. Trees, flowers, grass, even the weeds that pop up in the sidewalk cracks are all inspiration. I would say 80% of all my art is started from a substrate that has already been started. I love to make backgrounds on tag, paper, cardboard, canvas, etc. and put them aside to use at a later date.
For this project, I used the following:
- TCW2402 Blessed Nest Sign Stencil
- TCW2300 Gentle Leaves Slimeline Stencil
- TCW9011 Matte Gel Medium
The Crafters Workshop provided me with stencils and mediums to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own because I do love to use them.
Here is a tag I pulled out of my pile. I looked at and immediately inspired me. What do you see looking at it?
Looking at the bottom of my tag my scribbling looked like a jumble of sticks and vines which immediately made me want to create a nest.
To start I added the leaves from the Blessed Nest Sign Stencil to my tag in multiple places.
Next, I added Gentle Leaves Slimline Stencil to the tag.
To finish the tag, I added some die cuts for a nest and to honor Mother’s Day on Sunday I added a Swan and her babies.
Here is my finished tag.
What inspires you to create your art? I would love to know. If you create any nature inspired art with TCW Stencils, please share it with us on our Facebook page, Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest using hashtag #tcwstencillove.
Happy Mother’s Day!
