Imagine. Create. Enjoy.
Today, in my art journal, I played around with the 12" x 12" Water Series stencils. It has been a very snowy February, and now a very wet March here in Minnesota, USA. It felt appropriate to use these stencils! I chose the Ripples stencil from the 12" x 12" Water Series.
I was having trouble sleeping last night, so I was envisioning what I would do for my artistcellar post! Pink and water was the inspiration behind what transpired.
Make it pink.
I used pink and white acrylic paint and scraped it across the two pages.
Using a foam roller and deep periwinkle acrylic paint, I applied paint in the spaces of the Ripples stencil by Artistcellar.
Tip: Foam rollers work great to cover an area quickly when using large stencils.
Using fluid black acrylic paint and a long-handled no. 8 brush, I loosely drew a mandala.
Add some details, using a script liner brush.
Finally, add a contrasting color of acrylic paint around your mandala and the background designs.
I am sending you encouragement to play around with your art supplies this week. Make a mess; draw something simple. Do not worry about the end result, but do enjoy the process.
May it be so.
Blessings to you,
