The last few days I've been cutting my own stencils from file folders. It's so easy, I just cut the manila folder to fit through the printer, print some clip art, letters or numbers and cut it out with a craft knife. Did I mention how budget friendly this is?
I was testing my new stencils with spray paint in my water color paper pad and ended up with this.
It's far too close to an interesting art journal page to let it just languish there, unembellished and unloved, so I decided to play a little.
Here's the result:
Some of my favorite parts of this page is that I glued down rough circles of the paper towel I'd been cleaning my brushes off onto. It has such nice texture.
This is a new stamp called Lefty that I got from Texana Designs. Love it!
These circles make me happy. If you come over to my house, odds are good that you'll see a TP roll covered in paint near where I sit. I'm a big fan of imperfect circles. And neon.
And here's the page again in different light. You can really see all that magnificent orange paint.
TIP: I use the "Marking Paint" spray paint from Home Depot. It's really, really neon and it sprays great when inverted. You have to watch it though as it has a really strong spray. But at under five bucks I'm more than willing to work with that one small drawback.
This is my entry for the Simon Says Stamp and Show A PROJECT WITH HEART challenge.
