Today's post starts with 2 art samples made with my 6" x 6" mask Garden at Nemours.
The first sample below was created on sturdy cardstock that had been previously printed with a variety of abstract designs. To develop the piece, I placed the mask onto the lower left corner and went over it with a sponge brayer loaded with heavy-body acrylic paint.

Below is another piece developed on Fredrix Watercolor stretched canvas. Again I used water-soluble powdered pigments and Golden High Flow acrylics. This artwork was accepted into this year's annual Open Juried Show at the Guild of Creative Art (Shrewsbury, NJ.) The main tool used was my 9" x 12" Longwood Florals Mask.
The art sample below was developed with Longwood Florals Stencil, which also measures 9" x 12" ....
These two stencils and masks themselves look like this --

-- so, as you can see, they are exact opposites of each other. A stencil and a mask that are exact opposites, when used together, provide a way to play with the concept of positive space and negative space. I'll be posting art samples created with the two, used together. Pictures can easily provide a better explanation than words.
Thanks for your visit today!
