Imagine Art! Using Stencils to Create Layers

 

I have been playing lately with my stencils I design for The  Crafter’s Workshop.  This is a piece of art I  came up with.

To start, I dug out an old book page and applied a few drops of white fluid acrylic.

I stamped  image on tissue paper and apply to canvas with gel medium.  Then stamped an image (stamp unknown) onto tissue paper with archival ink. If anyone knows the origin of the stamp, please let me know and I will give them credit.drip some drops of color, add water, creating a water color effect.

I pulled out one of my well used stencils.  Words are a favorite of mine.  When I designed this stencil I wanted a kind of hippie vibe, and was happy with how it turned out.  it.  The other stencil “imagine” is from my Word Association  stencil.  You might notice that the word ART was first stenciled with a burnt orange color.  It did not work for me, so I tried a cobalt turquoise color instead, and liked it much better.

Lastly, I stenciled “imagine”  onto the canvas.  When designing word stencils, there has to be breaks in the letters or it will not cut properly in production (the whole letter would cut out).  Sometimes  I like the open lines and sometimes not.  In this case, I simply used a liner brush to connect the lines.

I would love to know how you use stencils in your work?
