Stencils was the theme for Tag Tuesday this week. You can see my tag here in an earlier post. I found that once I started playing around with my wild flowers and butterflies stencil, that I wanted to go on experimenting. I have tried different media and background papers.
Some old sheet music made an interesting background.
I used acrylic paint, which was a bit patchy, but it might work better with a watercolour wash over the top.
I have used tissue paper and watercolour here.
This is a negative stencil, done on a gelli plate, using metallic acrylic. I don't think this is effective, but might look brighter combined with another colour or with further layers of paper .
