I've posted before about the fun I have when I cut up stencils that are stained from earlier art projects, then use them in collage on canvas. Well, I've done it again ...
To create the frame on this 12" x 12" stretched canvas, I used Golden High Flow acrylics and the following stencils:
Mimosa 6 (6" x 6")
It's a Jungle Out There (9" x 12")
Prayer Flags (9" x 12")
Palm Fronds Silhouette Small (6" x 6")
I covered the central area of the canvas with a layer of Titanium White acrylic paint, to provide a bright white background for the cut-up, stained stencils. Once the paint was dry, I used gel matte medium to add the stencil bits -- except for Palm Fronds Silhouette Small, which I used in its entirety.
With the exception of Mimosa 6, the stained pieces that became collage elements are all of the stencils listed above.
The cut-up stencils used in today's post looked like this, originally --
|Above (9" x 12"): It's a Jungle Out There|
|Above: Prayer Flags (9" x 12")|
And Mimosa 6, used in making the border, looks like this:
Mimosa 6 measures 6" x 6" and has a big cousin measuring 9" x 12" --
