Stencil Clean Up Equals Framed Art

2015 June 19

TGIF, yay!  I think today is going to be a relatively decent day as far as temperature and humidity is concerned.  Tomorrow though, they are already calling for heat advice due to extreme humidity, sigh.  And we have puppy training……outside!

As for my project today.  Remember last year when my granddaughter Emma and I spent a day with paint and brayer and made backgrounds (post is here)?   I have these background pieces hanging off a shelf so that I can either grab them or maybe “see” something in them.  I’ve already used several of the backgrounds (like my first “Picasso” type face) and at one point used the red/orange/yellow brayered background paper to soak up excess spray ink from another project using the Free Spirit Prima Stencil.  (BTW, I will probably re-do that one too!)

I liked the watercolor look and decided to just add a bit of color to the feathers using Splash of Color Silks Acrylic Paints.  To help define her from the background, white paint was blended around her and on her face.



I found the perfect red frame at Ikea and love how she looks in the frame!


That’s it for me today.  Babysitting all three grandkids this afternoon, haven’t decided if I should take the 4th kid (puppy Sasha) as I’m sure mayhem will happen, lo!

You guys stay cool and dry and have a wonderful weekend!
