Stenciled Flowers

This background was built on 11" x 14" Strathmore Bristol Smooth Surface. 
I made a whole bunch of these at once, using paper from one pad of bristol. 
The bright colors came from two Dylusions Ink Sprays -  Lemon Zest and Funky Fuchsia.
I am always amazed at the colors I get when I start mixing these sprays with a little spritz of water and let them just blend into each other.
This is another example of what I showed you two posts ago.
I used a new Joggles stencil called Flowerburst.
I just placed it down on top of my colored background,
spritzed water over the stencil, and let it sit for about 15-20 seconds.
Then I removed the stencil and let it sit another 15-20 seconds.
Then I blotted the excess water away with a paper towel, 
and let the color continue lifting for a short while.
I love the results once the color has been lifted, 
leaving behind the image of the stencil.
Then I finished drying the whole page with a heat gun.
Now it's ready for some tangling.
I can't wait to get started on this one!
(I know, I say that every time! But it's true!)


  1. Looks spectacular - like sunbursts or perhaps starbursts but that needs a lot of imagination. Looking forward to seeing how those tangles interact with this.
