Blog hop love - Jane Davenport Signature Stencil Series :)


Hello friends! Wow, lately it's blog hop central over here! I love getting involved in testing out new products, giving out shout outs to awesome artists and shops and share with you how I create my art! :) (If you're a supplier of art supplies and ever want me to demo them for you or be part of a blog hop, do email me! (willowing AT

So without further ado! I was invited to be part of a blog hop to show off the fabulous new stencils produced by These specific stencils are the 'Artistcellar Signature Series" designed by Jane Davenport! Jane is a good friend of mine, a fabulous artist and also teaches on Life Book this year! Her lessons are SO super popular. :) Her lesson went up only 2 weeks ago. :) (Just a reminder that you can still sign up to Life Book - there is enough time to catch up!) 

Anyhoo, I personally love her art too and was delighted to hear that she had some stencils out. You get 4 of them in a pack and they feature faces and facial features in her style that you can use and play with in your art journal (or in a painting). The cool thing is that even though the designs are clearly and recognisably Jane's, when I started working over the stencils, I found the faces came out 'me' looking. :) So you can still make the faces really your own and not be too worried that the face is 'too someone else's style' if you know what I mean!? :) I did a little video of the process below.

Artistcellar are giving a way 1 set of the stencils to one of you!

If you want a chance to win, leave a comment below telling me why you'd love to own a set of Jane stencils!

  1. I love how you have made these faces your own, I would love to have these stencils because I sometimes go to a lot of work on a face before I realize the proportions are off! I have at least learned to watch out for the right eye being waaaayyy too high!!!

  2. I would LOVE to own these stencils because I don't own many stencils, and would love to add to my small collection! Thanks for the chance to win. xoxo Katie (

  3. Wow...first of all your work is awesome once again! But, I have to have these whether I win them or not. I just really started sketching & painting for that matter in the last 2 years (52 yrs old) due to being so critical of myself for years. I've practically given up on drawing profiles since I just can't seem to get them right...I know playing with these would help me so tremendously...thanks for sharing, too!
