Blog Hop and Giveaway • New Map Stencils by Jill Berry

Oh I have a special treat today!  YOU have a chance for a special preview of artist Jill Berry’s new Stencils from Artistcellar. All you have to do is leave a comment below and at the end of the blog hop I will randomly choose a winner from those who commented.
I was sooo excited to be considered for this blog hop! I absolutely adore maps and have been a fan of Jill Berry’s work, so when I saw the stencils, I was so excited! They are MAP themed!!!  Needless to say, I had a blast creating with them!!  I shared them in my Magical Mapping workshop  and the feedback was great. They are very versatile, and sparked the creativity of my students!
Below is a piece I made and incorporated the stencils. The designs are really unique and fit right in. I used brown pens and white gel pens to give it a scratchy look and show all the details in the stencils. They added that final touch of detail and interest to my pages, spurring ideas and spinning me into a world of ships, compasses  and journeys, mapped out amongst my pages.
You can find these stencils at Artistcellar:

The individual stencil names are:

  1. Oooooooo love LOVE how you used Jill’s stencils in this lush, rich environment you have created for them…Love the detail images too. I just want to jump right in and get lost in it..the symbols from the stencils just melt into your pages as if they belonged there all along, way before you even created the pages.
    Please don’t include me in the drawing as I am lucky to have these too 😀 😀
    I love how prolific you are within one single journal spread. Did I say enough “loves”?
