Stenciled Flowers


This background was built on 11″ x 14″ Strathmore Bristol Smooth Surface.

I made a whole bunch of these at once, using paper from one pad of bristol.

The bright colors came from two Dylusions Ink Sprays –  Lemon Zest and Funky Fuchsia.

I am always amazed at the colors I get when I start mixing these sprays with a little spritz of water and let them just blend into each other.

This is another example of what I showed you two posts ago.

I used a new Joggles stencil called Flowerburst.

I just placed it down on top of my colored background,

spritzed water over the stencil, and let it sit for about 15-20 seconds.

Then I removed the stencil and let it sit another 15-20 seconds.

Then I blotted the excess water away with a paper towel,

and let the color continue lifting for a short while.

I love the results once the color has been lifted,

leaving behind the image of the stencil.

Then I finished drying the whole page with a heat gun.

Now it’s ready for some tangling.

I can’t wait to get started on this one!

(I know, I say that every time! But it’s true!)

  1. Looks spectacular – like sunbursts or perhaps starbursts but that needs a lot of imagination. Looking forward to seeing how those tangles interact with this.Paula (PEP)

    • lots of fun to make, you never know exactly what is going to happen so it is a pleasant surprise every time 🙂
