Michelle Ward's new stencils are now available!
Here's a piece I did using her Segments Small Stencil, a 6x6" stencil with lots of possibilities!
Segments Small Stencil
|First I adhere old book pages with matte medium until the surface is completely covered.|
|After it dries, it can be trimmed around the edges with a craft knife.|
|I sanded the surface with 150 grit sandpaper for added interest,|
|then a light coat of white gesso, wiping most of it off.|
|I painted over Michelle's stencil with cerulean blue and yellow iron oxide acrylic paint.|
|I moved the stencil around and blended the paints with my brush.|
|I kept moving the stencil around and adding paint until I was happy with the composition.|
*note* Michelle's stencils are wonderful examples of very pleasing compositions already, however it was important to me to make this piece my own work, using her design.
|A dragonfly charm was attached to finish the piece.|
