This is a 5" X7" canvas.
I started by sponging black India Ink through Mary's stencil onto the canvas.
Normally I just hold my stencil in place but for this project, I taped my stencil down due to the 'give' in the center of the canvas.
This stencil is small (4" square) and I was able to bend it perfectly around my corners.
The small size allows me to easily carry the compass design to the edges of the canvas.
I punched a few circles from book paper, and tore a few strips of it to adhere to the canvas with gel medium.
I applied a few coats of Golden Fluid Acrylics (Quin Nickel Gold) and then quickly used a makeup wedge to remove most of the paint from the center compass.
Wanting more black but in a small pattern, I reached for one of Michelle Ward's stencils.
Ranger's Black Enamel Accents add nice detail marks to the center compass.
I usually add a word to canvases but I like this one "as is" so no words today.
Hope you enjoyed this project and that you'll pop over to my website to say hello!
