What Does My Heart Say?

Hi Stencil Lovers!
I wanted to share a spread I have in my art journal
using lots of stencils and layers.

Where do I even begin?????
There's magazine pictures, tickets, numbers, stamping,
fabric, stitching, tissue paper and several stencils.
I see bike wheels and circles and chevrons.
Then I added color to the circles with gelatos.

The smallest of the July 2014 StencilClub stencils
 was perfect for the background of this.
I liked the busy-ness of it.

I knew I wanted to use Terri Stegmiller's
Bold Flowers Stencil as the focus design.
I love that there are different sized flowers on this stencil.
I used a sponge with white gesso for this.

I am also adding more color to the background as I go.
Gelatos and Neocolor II Crayons mostly.

At this point I am not ready to do the flowers...
but my background is where I like it and I decide on my message.
What Does My Heart Say?

I love the texture collage offers.
That strip of fabric with the stitching is fabulous!

I thought the flowers really needed to be bold!

Play Play Play....

There you go.....
