Stencils are a huge subject.
They can be every size from gigantic to miniscule, and are created in so many ways.
For my purposes, I just wanted a small, quick stencil, so I cut a spontaneous design out of card stock.
I printed out one of my collage papers, leaving a large white border.
I dabbed paint onto it twice, using the stencil. Then I added lines with dimensional paint, and stamped on it a bit.
This will become another journal page for the new handmade art book I am making. It’s not finished yet, but I had fun with these techniques and will now refine them for further work.
