Frieda Oxenham: Artwork with StencilGirl® Stencils

As I mentioned previously in my February 2022 project I had bought some black sheets of paper from Arteza that were pre-scored to be folded into 7 x 8.6” frames, and it seemed a shame not to use them again as I was rather taken with them. This is the result.

Here is the tutorial:

1.      I started with three colours of acrylic paint: Golden Iridescent Bright Gold, Golden Quinacridone Red and Quinacridone Burnt Orange, and spread them out randomly over the frames using an old credit card.

2.      Using titanium white acrylic paint stencil on parts of Dream Imagine Inspire Create stencil using a cosmetic wedge.

3.      Stencil through Drips to add stripes to the frames using Golden Phthalo Blue.

4.      Using Distress Crayons Salty Dream and Candied Apple add more colour to the frames and then remove it with a baby wipe using the same stencil as in step 3.

5.      Add dots in various sizes with Radiant Gel in a colour of your choice, using the large stencil from the January 2017 StencilClub.

6.      Following the main shapes on the frames, outline them with black, gold and red Woody pencils and activate by spraying with water.

7.      Add smaller teal dots to the frames using Radiant Gel and the medium stencil from the August 2014 StencilClub.

8.      Add circular shape to one of the frames using teal Radiant Gel and the medium stencil from the January 2015 StencilClub

9.      Rub on some more paint where you feel you need to.

10.  Glue on vintage text as shown

11.  Spray with gold mica spray through one of the circles of the stencil used in step 8 (the one with the little dot pattern.
