Have you seen all the fabulous ARTplorations stencils over at STAMPlorations? For the next few days we're having a stencil blog hop, so you'll get to see plenty of them in use by the STAMPlorations girls. Here's what I made:
I glued a couple of pieces of dictionary paper on a 12-inch square canvas then covered it with white gesso. Once that was dry I stencilled a mix of gold pearl embossing paste and glass bead embossing paste through the Shutters stencil.
(You can see the sparkle of the Graphite texture paste in this close-up). I used red, orange and magenta Neocolour II crayons for the flower centres, grey for the shadows around the flowers and Antique Linen Distress Paint for the background. It's a few weeks since I made this, and I can't remember what the pink drips are - either Distress Paint or Neocolour II, daubed on then spritzed so that it dripped down.
The sentiment (from Art Is) was stamped onto tissue paper then glued onto the canvas.
