Layered Circles with StencilGirl Stencils by Anna Friesen

Hi! Anna here, showing you my latest project video using Gwen Lafleur's Decorative Elements Stencil series.  I warn you in advance: I get very messy and random, elbow deep in paint. :)

This is the fourth piece in a series I started a few months ago. It's full of many layers and lots of finger painting.

Enjoy my video! :)

Some things to note:
- I use two of my previous pieces as a guideline, sticking close to a similar colour scheme and overall idea.
- I cut out various sized circles to use as masks.
- My starting point was simply a piece of watercolour paper that I started who knows when, and got stuck on. I love when I can take something out of my junque pile and repurpose it! :)

Loving all the little nuances and swaths of colour in this piece. Though, the very first one I did is still my favourite!

I can't find the third one, nor a photo of it! I've upended almost my entire art journaling stash looking for it. I'm sure tomorrow it'll just appear, late to the party. haha!
