Stencil Art!

I hosted another demo at the store this week, using plastic stencils. We have quite the collection from TCW Stencils. The following are a few I've indulged myself with buying, and these are all using spray inks. I did work with a few other techniques, but will share that later.

Stencil is Aboriginal. - sprayed over watercolor background, Adirondack Sunset Orange spray ink over stencil. I used the ink remaining on the stencil to make a reverse printing, which has potential.

Cell Theory - Watercolor background with Dylusions Calypso Teal Ink Spray. It works, but I LOVE the reverse image on the old dictionary page! 

Branches with White Linen Dylusions Ink Spray (right) on black paper. Wow! I quite like it. The reverse is just as cool! 

Tie-Dyed - Dylusions Cherry Pie sprayed over water colored background. Reverse from the left over inks was printed on a paper bag remnant. Makes me happy! 



Sharing with Paint Party Friday, hosted by Eva and Kristin.
