YES!!! It's finally my turn to share! I was psyched when I saw these Halftone Dots stencils! They are so "perfectly imperfect"! As you can see I have been playing with them quite a bit and have already stained them from use.
But because of the pliability and strength of the Artistcellar stencils I am able to use a toothbrush to make sure the stenciled image stay clear, thank you for an awesome product!
The top 3 things I love about this stencil set?
Ok here is the fun! I wanted to try these a few different ways with different mediums and substrates.
I used the stencils to create the background using random placement of the stencil.
I then went on to create my fairy face using the Dina Wakley paints layering thin layers of color so the background still ghosts through.
And some journaling to release a bit of stress.
I can totally see using these stencils again for a flowery field or even trees, it was so easy to use the watercolor bleed under technique (refer to my last blog post) to create such wonderful depth and color variation. I probably did 4-5 layers of stenciled color letting each layer dry before applying the next, and because I used the mineral paper, I was able to soften the lines easily with a damp brush.
I can't wait to play with these on the mineral paper some more, my brain gears are grinding!!!
The last item I decided to make is a small wall hanging for my bathroom wall, the substrate is pressed particle board from a repurposed sign I had laying about. For paint I used DecoArt chalky finish paint, Matte Medium, watercolors and scrapbook paper.
I used the stencil this time in more of a pattern instead of being purposely random.
The finished piece is such a jumble of pattern and color it makes you read it, I love it!
