  • Less is More: Amy emphasizes the beauty of simplicity in art. Whether it's quotes, scripture verses, or larger sayings, incorporating subtle details prompts viewers to ponder the artist's intentions, adding depth to the piece.
  • Precision with Stencils: Amy's approach to stenciling is strategic and deliberate. By selecting patterns like honeycombs or postmarks and integrating them strategically, you guide the viewer's eye and spark intrigue.
  • Bold Accents: A splash of vibrant color, such as red, serves as a visual magnet, drawing attention to pivotal elements within the composition. Amy advises a restrained approach, ensuring these accents command attention without overwhelming the overall aesthetic.
  • Artistry Beyond Boundaries: By extending the design slightly beyond the surface and adding thoughtful finishing touches, you invite viewers to explore the piece in its entirety, igniting curiosity and conversation.
