My project is called by Dina Wakley, reduction stencilling because you wipe away some of the paint or crayon.
After gessoing the page, very important, I layed down blocks of portfolio pastels and fresco paints.
I then laid the hearts stencil over and removed paint etc with a baby wipe.
I layered it by adding more paint through the stencil and stamping script through the stencil.
I drew the hearts through the stencil and cut out manuscript shapes.
because it was my practise piece, I scribbled on it and messed about. I liked the messing about and kept it! I finished with a Sara Naumann sentiment.
Here is another version as I was experimenting with colour.
Thanks for looking and thanks to Paperartsy for the opportunity!
