I think I first saw this idea on Dina Wakley's blog...
She's one of my faaaaavvvvvooooorrrritttttteeee
mixed media artists!
I especially love her grunge & her use of paint & stencils.
In this post, she made a stencil of herself.
So very cool!
Here's my attempt at a Linda-stencil : .)
I used this picture.
Edited in PS Elements
I had a hard time wrapping my head around which parts I had to cut out
to make the right parts show after stenciling.
I think the difficulty I experienced
is related to my inability to parallel parking correctly the first time
(fine, second or third time!)
and the fact that I'm not spatial at all!!!
(please, never ask me to solve a rubik's cube!)
My first practice piece...
I used Tattered Angels white Chalkboard spray ink.
(good Linda, bad Linda? heh!)
Then I tried some octopus purple Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist,
I think its called Raven, over a page where I had previously
stamped some peacock feathers and spattered (splattered?) purple ink.
I think I want to write some of the Red Hot Chili Peppers lyrics
from Tell Me Baby across that flat part....
I'm supposed to be at an 8th birthday backyard camp-out with the kidlets
but I begged off.
I was being shy & I'm so tired after this week.
I just needed to be alone in a quiet place.
I did get the birthday boy's card done, complete with present enclosed!
