Hi friends! I’m Debi Adams and I’m happy to have you joining me here today at StencilGirl. Been busy in my workshop messing up my workspace, as usual. It’s been said that “creative people are rarely tidy” and I do my best to keep up my end of the bargain. So what’s new? Well let’s see. I never like to stay inside the creative lines and this post is no exception. With Easter and spring here I thought I would make something seasonal so I'm stepping away from the abstract... just for today.
Adding details by writing "chicken scratch" to the base with a thin, black pen helps to make a great background filler or as a hidden message.
I traced the bunny onto watercolor paper with the black pen and used the “messy” watercoloring approach to color him in. I cut him out and adhered him to the tag using foam dots.
Here are a few other projects I was working on with this stencil. Once I got on a roll, I couldn’t stop. These will eventually be cards.
Again, like the bunny, I traced out the images and then watercolored them. I love when the colors go out of bounds. Kinda rebellious like that :).
Using distress inks and water for my background is always fun. Arches watercolor paper was used for the substrate then texture paste was applied to the top of the spring stencils.
Supplies needed for the tag:
*Watercolors of your Choice
*Fine Point, Permanent Black Ink Pen
*Watercolor Paper for Bunny
