|"i carry your heart with me"|
Begin with a large sheet of watercolor paper measuring 11” by 15”. Using the Calypso Kaleidacolor Ink Pad, ink up an brayer and apply the ink generously to the water color paper. Blend the colors together with baby wipes.
I drew the image of a girl with my Stabilo pencil free hand. You could use an ad from a fashion magazine or a stencil to make your image. Now I stenciled white gesso at the top using Blazonry and in the middle I used the same stencil but just used the Stabilo pencil. This adds a lot of texture to the piece. I added white acrylic paint to her hair and some Inktense pencil color to her skin and dress.
I painted around the image of the girl with Black Chalkboard paint and allowed it to dry. This will be my journaling surface later.
I used a Chunky Chevron stencil by Artistcellar with Bahama Blue irRESISTibles and a paint brush in several spots.
The dangling threads from the heart strings were trimmed but still left long.
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope to see you next Tuesday with more stenciling ideas!
