It Doesn't Have to be Fancy -by Shana

So as I said in my last post I have been taking part in a Faces of February challenge, I have been making a face everyday, using different mediums or styles. So that being said, this post is not about a face I did! lol! because I have to plan these out a bit I just wanted to play and do a bit of playing with stencils and paint today!

I started by getting out my Gesso and covering something I didn't care for in my Strathmore Journal. I completely covered my pages in layers of color using multiple stencils, (here is the list: Playful Pods, Japanese Geometric, Traditional Japanese, Halftone Dots, Marked Series and Steampunk, I thinks that's all of them!) and Dina Wakley Acrylic paints.

I grabbed my Generals Scribe-all pencil and made some simple scribbly sketchy flowers on the pages. I then used gesso to outline them.

I grabbed more of the Dina Wakley paint and mixed it with some gesso and made some beautiful blendy loveliness around the flowers.

After that I just went willy nilly, grabbing more paint, some pens and the generals pencils to play until I was done having having fun! The last thing I did was add some simple silhouettes of a fairie and random bugs and some purposely sloppily written "It doesnt have to be fancy to be fun"

This process is by no means something that I created but it is a wonderful way to play with my supplies and make something that I enjoy looking at! Here's the video: 

 

Big hugs and Mushy stuff!
