mind

When I came cross this quote  Creative minds are rarely tidy I immediately knew what to do: make a messy painty page.
First I started by making a stencil with paint splatters.


Then the fun could begin: 
using a sponge and different colorful colors I stenciled through my new stencil.
Next I dripped some acrylic paint onto my page and to top of the mess I added some splattering.
Now I just needed to add the quote and done.


I like the fact that I finally managed to make a page with still some white space coming through, yeah.

  1. What impressed me, other than the page and the quote, was the fact you made your own stencil. Stencils are SO expensive, and you'll be able to use this one for years to come, I suspect. And of course, I loved the messy page, too. It was very, very clever.

    1. Yes, they are made out of acetate, so I can use and re-use the stencils I make.
