Today I had finally time to play ! Yay... I have been so busy lately; I cannot imagine how I used to cope with everything when I still worked !!! I guess that is always the case when once you are home all day.
Anyway, I got my Deco Art paints out today and I have been wanting to so something with an Andy Skinner stencil that I must have had for a year.. I think it turned out, well, really groovy !!!
I started with a piece of Mixed Media paper. I used my gelli plate to create a background with lots of colours: Cobalt Teal hue, Yellow Light Green, Cadmium Orange Hue, Primary Yellow and Primary Magenta. I used Titanium White and Carbon Black to block out the people and to stencil the stars. I also splattered some thinned down white on the whole page. To get some texture in my background I used foam stamps that I bought in a toy shop and a coaster from Ikea.
Once I was happy I used the two masks that are part of this stencil set from Andy Skinner which is called "Hippy Chic".
I laid them onto my project and sponged around them with black paint. I kept rotating them to get a different perspective. I then filled in the gaps between the peeps with a brush. When everything had dried I used a white gel pen to go around the figures.
Lastly I added the stars which are in the same stencil set and some splatters.
The sentiment is made with rubber stamps.
Thank you so much for stopping by today !
