Today, it is Monday again and a new Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge, Stencil It. I love stencils, they are so versatile and can be used for many techniques. There are also so many fabulous designs available, and they even take very little space to store.
I started making this mixed media canvas on one of those very cold days last week, and was inspired by the gorgeous sky streaked with pink that I had seen in the morning. I imagined standing at an old wooden fence looking out over a frozen, but yet inviting, landscape. And maybe moving into the house with the old barn on the canvas. I used stencils by StencilGirl to create this. If you haven't had a look on their stencils, I hope you will do so, there is a wonderful variety and so much to choose from.
Working on a canvas and gesso covered wooden board (6.3 x 8.6 in), I tore a sky and hills out of paper from the Kaisercraft Blue Bay set. The dotted and white papers have a texture, which I thought would also work well on the canvas.
The title word was done with the Uplifting Words stencil and paste. I wanted the word to be light and blend into the background and painted it pink, instead of brown or black, which I might ordinarily have done.
I hope you will join us in our stencil it challenge. As always you have a chance to win a $50 gift voucher from Simon Says Stamp. You have until Monday 8am Ohio time. 1pm UK time, 2 pm CET to join in.
