Mary Beth Shaw's Circle Tiles stencil
Leslie here, having a love-fest with Mary Beth Shaw's fabulous Circle Tiles stencil. Anyone who has looked at my work knows that I am obsessed with all types of circular shapes. They reappear in my mark-making, stitching, and quilting with great regularity. So, naturally, I fell in love with this stencil immediately!
Here are the surfaces I plan to work with.
The postcards were colored with Inktense Blocks and set with matte medium.
(I bought these at an art store while I was in SoCal recently and wanted to play with them).
I also bought a bunch of these large foam daubers, which I adore for using on stencils!
They work great for paint and acrylic inks.
Placing the Circle Tile stencil over the surface of the postcard..
I will cover the surface with white opaque paint.
I wanted to cover the journal pages around the glued-in-place postcards.
I love how this looks!
Now I will work directly onto one of the cards.
I like how the paint partially obscures the image below
Because I don't want to glop a lot of paint onto my work surface I have a
paper palette next to my work area. I put a small amount of paint on the palette
and pounce my dauber into it to minimize the amount of paint I pick up with the sponge.
Here is a partially covered paper...
Switching to a Cadminium light red I placed the stencil, point to point,
over a long piece of paper.
In this case I moved the stencil across the paper diagonally, leaving
some openings to the background exposed
I found this journal while in California with the natural brown paper
and I love it!
I hope you will pick up one of these stencils and play with it.
You will love it!
