Your Life Unfolds Canvas with Natalie May

Hey there StencilGirl® fans!

Today I am sharing a canvas I created to display in my new Studio!

I wanted to create something that was honest and inspirational and this little 20x25cm canvas was just the thing.

Here are a few simple steps to re-create this canvas.

I started with a base of yellow paint and then added a few collage elements with gel medium.

I pulled out a few of my fave StencilGirl® designs and started layering on the colors, building up from light blues to darker blues and teals.  

Using a blending tool makes it super easy for the color to go on evenly.
Finding unique shapes in the stencils added a crazy dimension to the canvas and I love that!

Adding the Vintage Script Stencil with a light grey paint plus some loopy bits from Mary Beth's Private Collection stencil gave depth as well.

The Shaw/Carriker Mash up from the November 19 StencilClub was the perfect focal point for the piece so I used a Navy blue paint to add it to the canvas, blending it into the background.

I finished it off with a few splatters of white paint, some simple black stamping and some doodling in black and gold paint pen!

And it has pride of place on the shelf in the studio!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day

Natalie May
