Creative Jumpstart Day 4 Again

I love stencils, so I kept experimenting with the Take Away technique that Michelle Ward showed in Creative Jumpstart. This is going to be my background for Day 6's project (I seem to have skipped a day. I'm not sure what happened, but I plan to go back to it later, although Day 6 looked like it is going to be SO MUCH FUN that I may only do that for the rest of my time off).

I painted paisley (tear drop-isn) shapes in gesso, and then brayer-ed on some red and magenta paint, and used my new stripy stencil to remove the paint.
I used this stencil I made from hand-drawn lines.
Here's my background in full (with a little of my chevron pattern from Lisa Congdon's Patterns class on the side).

Thanks for looking!


  1. Florence - terrific pages! Thanks for sharing your take-out!

  2. Very nice - the colours are ready for Valentines Day! That looks like a neat stencil you made!
