Blossom

I had so much fun making this page and I believe that is visible.
I started by coloring the background in different shades of green with inktense pencils and wiped over it with a damp babywipe in a circular motion.

Next I took a variety of my homemade stencils (I use a heat tool for cutting them) 


and stencilled away with acrylic paint.


Loving the result.
Of course this has as a side effect that I start to hesitate about what to do next.
First I thought about using  this owl image


Then I thought of creating a disco scene



But after a good night’s rest it dawned upon me, flowers.



I'd like to enter this page for The Craft Barn challenge: stencils and masks.

  6. I remember cutting some stencils with a craft knife... not easy and time consuming! Never tried with a hot knife (stylus?) better not as I would burn myself! I fancied the owl myself but flowers work too!

    1. the owl will definitely pop up somewhere else, keep en eye out :-)
      the tool is a hot tip and I think it works better than a knife, but still is time consuming, but now I am able to make whatever stencil I want at hardly no cost. And I must say I have burnt myself a couple of times.
