Hello Hello :)
Louise here today sharing with you my creative fun with the wonderful StencilGirl stencils! This month I want to share with you a gift [framed print], I created for a very close friend [whose fave colour is blue so that is why the background is blue :)].
The simple technique used with creating this print lends itself to a variety of arty pursuits; art journaling, painting, and card making for example.
In creating the background for this print I have used the fabulous 'Loopy Ladders' Stencil designed by Cecillia Swatton.
I have put together a couple of photo collages that show the basic steps of how I created this print.
I began with applying a coat of acrylic paint on the background paper. When this was dry I sponged on 2 lighter tones of blue acrylic paint through the stencil to create the fabulous 'loopy ladders' pattern.
Once the paint was dry I drew the basic outlines of my 3 ladies using a black gel journal pen.
To colour in my ladies I have used a variety of Posca Paint Pens. I have also used a black and white Signo gel pens for fine detailing. To complete the print I have added stars and title work using the same black and white gel pens.
Well that is it from me for this month. I do hope you have enjoyed seeing I created this print. Fingers crossed that my friend likes it :) :) :)
Cheers and Happy StencilGirlArting,
Louise :) xxx
