Roxanne Evans Stout New Stencils + Mixed Media Workshop!

Roxanne Evans Stout - Find the essence of your creativity

Hello you beautiful, artistic souls! I wanted to tell you about the magic brewing here at River Garden Studio. I have some excitement to share!

I love this new stencil creation, and it is ready to share with you at last!
Look at all of these new stencil designs on the sheet called ATC Mix-Up Stout #1!

The time has finally come for me to share my new stencil designs

Just-Released Stencil Designs at StencilGirl Products!

I have two whole sheets available with brand-new stencil creations! Each 9″x12″ sheet has 9 unique images including animals, landscapes, and symbols. Take a look at the options on both sheets, only $14 each! Not only are they fun to use, but they are sturdy and the quality is amazing!

These were made with so much love and inspired by my own work, including my paintings, collages, and pages in my artist books and art journals. You might recognize some of the images and marks that I use so often.

Thank you to StencilGirl Products and MaryBeth Shaw for what you do for artists and art makers around the world.

I have 30 other sheets of stencils available on StencilGirl! They are a variety of sizes and priced $5, $7, and $14. Stencils make a great gift for yourself or a loved one!

I put so much love into each of these new stencil designs! This is from the sheet called ATC Mix-Up Stout #2.
Another precious new design for you from me!

I am so excited to co-teach in our upcoming Zoom workshop

The Illuminated Scroll!

This three-day workshop will happen in real time on Zoom with myself, Seth Apter, and Lisa Agaran. We have a limited number of live spots available and options for those who cannot join us live.

Registration includes all three days of the workshop, daily recordings available for 3 weeks after the workshop has ended (recordings will not be available for downloading), plus our Meet the Instructors Night event the evening before the workshop begins. Get all of the details and register here!

Won’t you make three Illuminated Scrolls with us?!

People have created scrolls to record beauty and magic since ancient times…

In The Illuminated Scroll, you will connect with history and the elements as we make three unique mixed-media scrolls on each of the three days. This is a special opportunity with Lisa Agaran, Seth Apter, and I each teaching for one whole day of the workshop!

I teach the first day and will guide you through your first Illuminated Scroll! Together we will create an enticing piece out of fabric treated with layers of gesso and paint and then embellished with a blend of collaged fabric & papers, stitching, and gatherings from nature. I will also show you how to incorporate an easy weave into your scroll to hold sticks and other found objects.

Here is a sample of my own Illuminated Scroll, which I will teach you to make! It has my new horse stencil on it.

For a special touch, we will also be using my newest stencil designs! I’m so excited for you to use them. All of my stencil designs are available at StencilGirl Products! You will see the newest stencils first!

Your majestic scroll will be a stunning work of art both when rolled up and opened to be hung on the wall, revealing your visual stories.

I am in love with this Illuminated Scroll I made, and I cannot wait to see what you make!

Join the instructors of The Illuminated Scroll… …for a fun and casual Facebook Live Event! Whether or not you are registered for the Illuminated Scroll yet, join us on Lisa’s Facebook page at 4 PST this Saturday, October 16! All three of us instructors will be there, and it will be a great virtual get-together!

Won’t you join us?!
