Hi Everyone! Linda Cain here.
I have the honor of sharing with you my take on a gorgeous stencil from the talented Pam Carriker.
The page is done in the large Dylusions Journal so the 9x12 stencil fit perfectly.
This is the finished piece and I love how it turned out.
I used Distress Inks and Blending Tools to add the bright colors of ink to the stencil using purples and blues, then reds and oranges.
The hand-written phrase is added around the window and more Distress Inks are used to add color to the corners and open areas of the page.
This stencil just called my name.
I wanted the bird to be more precise, so I painted him in with acrylic paints and a brush.
When it was all dry I used a Black Glaze pen to go around all the edges and added my own drawings.
The heavy black pen created a more stained glass look.
This is a detail shot of the yellow and blue negative area that I colored in with pens.
The Glaze pen keeps the colors from blending out of the lines, but lets you blend the pen colors within their own area.
You can also see how the spritzed water drops added to the red/orange and purple/blue areas of Distress Inks show wonderful back-washes of lighter colors.
I hope you enjoyed this small look into the creative process using this stencil from Pam. I really loved the creative journey I had doing this page.
Thanks for stopping by.
