Hello and welcome to the StencilGirl Products and Imagine Blog Hop, DAY TWO!
For this hop I received three stencils: Jessica Sporn's Rain, Andrea Matus deMeng's Eve, a modern woman small stencil, Seth Apter's Techno Insiders Circle. It was so easy to use all three, actually it became an addictive process, I haven't been able to stop using them all month long! This is the project I chose to share today, it is called " Steampunked Namaste". It is part of an art journal of faces, she just has an elaborate head gear and flowers. I will make a series of faces like these and then bind all the pages together in a hand made journal.
The background gets its color from Fireworks! Craft Spray in the Lilac Posies color, sprayed over Seth's Techno Insiders Circle. Then I used the Techno Insiders Circle again on top of that with Fireworks! Desert Sand spray. The face is Andrea's Eve stencil. I evened out the skin tones with Jane Davenport's Paint Over Pens, using Unicorn, Beach and Starfish. Even the flowers in the foreground are a StencilGirls stencil designed by Mary Beth Shaw. On a separate piece of water color paper, I sprayed the Fireworks! sprays through the stencil then added additional shading by pouring some of the Fireworks! in a water brush and applying it where needed. When the flowers were dry I cut them out and adhered them with Tear It! tape. Here are a few close up shots of the background and the face.
Here is another very similar art journal page using the same stencils but in Fireworks! Craft Spray in primarily blues and greens. I used all the same stencils just differently.
