If you're a creative slob like me, you are going to love this fun approach to stenciling!
Today I'm using some of my new GEOStencils and instead of using acrylic paint to create a nice crisp design, I decided to use Marabu Art Spray to create a messy background. Whoever said stenciling had to be neat anyway?! I'll admit, the first time I tried this I held my breath, as I lifted off the stencil, the design was more of a blob of color and the drips of extra art spray went all over the place but I quickly learned to love it and the freedom it provides because having zero control of the outcome can be liberating as well as serendipitous!
The only thing you have to keep in mind is that if you're using Complementary colors (colors opposite each other on the color wheel, like the red and green I used) make sure you don't over blend as they will turn into mud. You can always use an Analogous color scheme (colors next to each other on the color wheel, like reds, yellows, orange) and mix and blend until your heart's content!!
