6" x 6" LOVE may at first glance appear to be a stencil that can be used only one way, since it's text, not an abstract image or a representational image -- but ...
... I've experimented in several directions. One of those adventures has been in making double- and triple-prints.
The double print above started on 12" x 12" scrapbook paper that had come in pale green with a stylized flowery pattern.

Above: The overlay print of purple LOVE had started as a separate print, looking like this --
-- and I'd made that print using part of my 9" x 12" stencil Boxed Vines. Its background paper was glossy cardstock monoprinted with water-diluted purple acrylic paint. This type of monoprinting is called decalcomania.
In its entirety, Boxed Vines looks like this:
And Sassy Spray looks like this before being cut from its 6" x 6" frame --
And, before being cut from its 6" x 6" frame, Looking Up Through Trees Small looks like this:
