Hi all! I cannot tell you what an honor it is to have been invited by Jessica Sporn to participate in one of her blog hops featuring her newest stencils at Stencil Girl! It's the first time I am a blog hop participant and I was so excited I created 3 different projects to share with you today!!
This is the stencil I chose to work with - Frames Stencil:
My stencil arrived right around the time I was painting garlands and flower frames inspired by this tutorial. You can see my previous watercolor art in this post.
I placed my frame of choice onto a watercolor postcard (140lb.) First, Key Lime Twinkling H2O was painted thru. Once dry Moss Green was added for some depth. A variety of Twinklng H2Os were used to paint the flowers. Details were drawn in with a Faber Castell Pitt Pen and uni-ball Signo white pen. Sentiment is a stamp by Hampton Art. Butterfly sticker is Paper House Productions.
My second project was inspired by these vintage frames which we have hanging throughout our home:
For project three I chose to work on fabric. A small canvas bag to be exact.
I used blue painters tape to mask of portions of the frames I was going to use:
Golden Pyrole Red and Transparent Pyrole Orange were used for the flowers and a combination of Golden Jenkins Green and Green Gold for the stems, leaves and grass. Stamped bee (DeNami) and words (unknown) using crafter's Black Ink (Colorbox). Dashes were drawn in with a fabric marker. It was all heat set with an iron then glitter glue (Diamond Stickles-Ranger) was applied to the bee's wings. Almost forgot- I also went over bits of the flowers with Apricot Nectar Silks Glaze and bits of the green with Sunburst Silks Glaze. Unfortunately I was not able to capture the subtle shimmer though.
I hope you have enjoyed my projects and have been inspired. Now go see what the other artists have done with the Frames stencil but don't go without first leaving a comment here because Jessica is giving away a Frames stencil to one lucky winner and EVERY comment on the Test Drive will be eligible to win!
