Using just watered down acrylics in spray bottles, paper, and the stencils, I was amused for hours 🙂
I used the stencils like normal, and flipped them over after spraying them to get the negative of the stencil, then used the reg side again to add more color to the negative, and visa-versa. SO MUCH FUN!
Stencil and stencil reverse plain.
Stencil used opposite way over each previous print to add silver.
All this playing has shown me how awesome stencils are (as if I didn’t already love them) and that I need more spray bottles so I can have a wider range of colors 🙂 I mostly used loose pages of super cheap watercolor paper that I happen to have a huge stack of (terrible idea to buy a big pack of “cheap” watercolor paper, you get exactly what you pay for and the paper sucks for water colors. On a good note tho, it is awesome for acrylic paint stencil prints, soaks up the watery paint beautifully!), and I only did a few prints in my art journal. I think I am going to cut up the loose pages to use on future journal pages; I have seen some great art journal pages lately, often incorporating circles and shapes cut from stenciled and painted papers. LOVE! Speaking of art journal pages, I started a new journal page, and nearly finished it in one sitting. Very unusual for me, I know 😛
I’m thinking it needs a quote or song lyrics written in black, and then it should be done 🙂 I used both new stencils, the spray acrylics, gel medium, inks, and a piece torn from the scrap paper I have covering my desk. This page makes me super happy!
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by!
