Face Design Stencil System - Joggles Video and Instruction

Check out Barbara's blog where she demonstrates the face stencils!

NEW RELEASE! Fearless Face Stencil System - The easiest way to create beautiful faces!

Now at

Check out my new face designing stencils!  This is a fantastic set of stencils!!!  I have made it soooo easy for you to create beautiful faces to incorporate into your artwork!  All stencils are 6" x 9" making them very affordable as always is!  Check out all the options:

2 Face Shapes
3 Face Sizes
6 Face Styles
3 Hairstyles
Braids and Ponytails
5 Hats
2 Crowns
2 Headbands
and 3 styles of Eyeglasses

I have always wanted to create faces so I finally took the leap and developed a set of stencils that would allow me to create cute faces quickly and easily and in 3 different sizes.  The faces range in size from Large - 4 ½” x 3”, Medium - 3 ½” x 2 ½” and Small - 2 ½” x 1 ¾”.  I pushed beyond my initial design ideas to add hats, hair and even glasses!  I’m super excited to introduce these great easy-to-use stencils to create beautiful faces for your art projects! 

These designs are somewhat graphic and semi-realistic in nature, but they can easily be transformed into more realistic features depending on the type of media you are using to create them.  I really like this versatility as it opens up so many more opportunities for the look and feel that you can create in the face designs.  Sometimes I want to create a very graphic look by stenciling black paint for the eyes, nose and lips and other times I enjoy creating with just my pencils for a sketched look.

One of the coolest results of creating endless face designs with these stencils is the character design story that you can develop along with your drawing!  Every time I create a new face, the character starts to develop.  I start thinking about who this girl (or boy) is or who she wants to be, what her interests, dreams and goals are, and what her personality is like.  All of a sudden, this incredible character comes to life!

Check them out at today!

I guarantee you will have as much fun as I do creating with these stencils!!!

Stay tuned for a Free Giveaway!!!!

Flora & Fonds New Stencils and Masks!

Wow!  I guess I have been on an extended vacation and I didn't even know it!  I wouldn't be surprised if you thought I abandoned you.  Nope!  I'm here and have been really busy working away and I even have NEWS!

My new collection of Flora & Fronds, 6" x 9" stencils and masks are available on  I totally missed a post on this because I was already working on MORE NEW STENCILS when they came out.  So believe it or not, I'm now just exploring these stencils and having a blast with them.  I actually found a new technique that I am loving shown in these two images.

I have taken my Derwent Inktense blocks and scribbled messy inside the stencil areas.  Then I dip my finger in water and dab it over those spaces to wet the ink.  The trick to this technique is to not add too much water and to re-wet your finger every few dabs.  Rather than trying intentionally to miss some spots and distress the look of the applied watercolor, you are guaranteed to get that look by using this technique!  (I'm seeing a new fabric design developing!)

This technique probably works fine with water-soluble crayons as well but I have not yet tried that.  To finish the look, I messy sketched over the stencil marks using a black permanent fine point marker.


Believe it or not, there are more stencils coming out this Wednesday, November 9th at  You are going to be really SURPRISED by this collection.  I can't give any hints but it's only 2 days away so you will have to wait.  I do promise to post all the information on Wednesday so you can see all the awesome artwork I have already created with them!

So again, I am sorry for being away for so long.  I'm still here.  I've still got tons of ideas and next up will be finishing my Rotational Design E-book!  I can't wait!!!

Check back Wednesday for the New Collection!!!
