Happy WOYWW y’all.
Well, I am pre-typing this cause it is likely I am going to be up all night watching election results, just to get an idea of where things are heading. The election isn’t over until all the votes are counted, so unless the results are overwhelmingly obvious, by the time this posts I’m not sure I will know if I am, in fact, Feelin’ Good as Hell or not. I prepped a stencil just in case.
and closer – can you tell that is actually Lizzo?
The only difficult part was adding all the bridges to ensure the text didn’t have big open areas – which I like for some things, not for this. I am in process, testing a few stencils. I have about three stencil books – this one was a tip off from a WOYWW desker, but I’ve forgotten who now. This stencil might be the other option if things go the wrong way…
I am testing the image on deli paper so I can lay it on a page to check for size, etc. and also testing a stark white and subtle shading effect. I also cut a few other stencils – cause I am still on the look out for the best face. This one is stark and simple and might fit the bill:
I have had this next image for a while and at this point have no idea where it came from – it might have been from a now defunct stencil site or just some random image I liked. But I do like it – a lot.
Not sure if I will add them on the deli paper, or book paper or if I will stencil directly on a page. I also snapped a photo of the deli paper page from the other day, all stuck down. I almost hate to cover it with anything, it’s so pretty!
And very lastly, I have some stamps I ordered from the USA. Sadly, no UK seller has them and and no one was willing to order them for me. Luckily the seller, Rubber Moon, does ship internationally. It took about a week or maybe 10 days to get here. I can’t wait to use them. I add the ink pad so you can see they are actually pretty big stamps!
So that’s me for this week. Hope you are all weathering the lock-down OK and are keeping your spirits up and still making art. I’ll be making my visits, as many as possible, today. Looking forward to both the distraction and the inspiration in equal parts!
(and ps. At the moment I am most definitely NOT feelin’ good as hell…)
