Here are the steps I went through to do these pages. First I gessoed both pages lightly. When the gesso was dry I stamped Dyan Reaveley's number stamp randomly on both pages too.
I placed my Sea Foam stencil on the pages, sprayed more water and blotted it with a paper towel. This way I could lift off just a little of the color. Next I stamped Donna Downey Studios stamp called "She Pauses" on the page using StazOn Jet Black ink.
I stenciled my Believe stencil on the opposite page with gesso and let it dry. Her face received a light coating of gesso at this point. Now I had a great surface to use Pan Pastels on to give her some color. All the little bits here and there on the pages are past mistakes that were recycled in this project.
