It's Tracy V. with my final StencilGirl blog post. I have loved, loved being a part of The StencilGirl Creative Team for the past two years, but last year I returned to full time work and have had to let some things go. While I do not art as often as I'd like to anymore, this mini journal helps me keep the creative juices flowing in shorter time spurts. I also love to use my stencils to make backgrounds - a quick and gorgeous way to create a backdrop for just about anything - like these black and white images from a bridal magazine! It has been a pleasure sharing my stencil art with you all. I hope that you will follow me to catch my art ventures when I can find the time, and enjoy this last project!

STEP 1: Using the mini gel plate create a checkered pattern alternating between two paint colors, then stencil over top each square in the opposite color.
STEP 2: Use white Gesso to soften the lines between the squares of color.
STEP: 3: Stencil smaller shapes over the white areas in different colors, and soften the edges with Gesso once again.
STEP 4: Draw designs over the white area in black ink pen.
STEP 5: Adhere your black and white images with the matte medium, dry and highlight with Gesso once more.
STEP 6: Stencil over the white areas once again with a new stencil and color paint.
