PAVILION SHADOWS 6" x 6" Stencil

Note:  the StencilGirl links below will take you to the right stencils on the StencilGirl website, altho the stencil titles may differ from here to there.

Pavilion Shadows, one of my four brand-new StencilGirl stencils, is featured in today's lineup of artworks.  In creating them, I used a 4-inch-wide sponge brayer loaded with heavy-body acrylic paint.  After charging the brayer with paint, I rolled it over the stencil, with one hand holding the stencil in place on the substrate.  Many of these substrates were papers that had already been printed, usually on the Gelli Plate.  Other substrates were "found" papers that came pre-printed in a variety of ways.

Above:  this print was made on gold-bronze foil-laminated paper.  The paper had come on a roll as giftwrap.

With just a change in background paper, changes in paint color, and changes in stencil placement, variety blossoms!

To see all of my stencils -- new and old -- just go here.

More special ways of using stencils will be posted here -- and a very special post will appear May 23.  To follow this blog, just sign up for emails on the upper right.
