Collages Made Using StencilGirl Stencils and Masks

What do the following three papers have in common?  Two things.  First, all of them were printed with my 6" x 6" Garden at Nemours Mask (top layer) and 6" x 6" Garden at Nemours Stencil --

Above:  Paper printed with my 6" x 6" Garden at Nemours Mask (top layer) and 6" x 6" Garden at Nemours Stencil (bottom layer, barely visible.)

Also used in this collage were two other papers; the first, below, was likewise printed with my 6" x 6" Garden at Nemours Mask (top layer) and 6" x 6" Garden at Nemours Stencil (bottom layer, barely visible.)

Above:  This paper was cut into strips for use in today's first collage.

Another print, likewise cut into strips for addition to today's first collage, is below.  Once again I'd used my 6" x 6" Garden at Nemours Mask (bottom layer) and 6" x 6" Garden at Nemours Stencil (top layer) --

-- and, the second thing these papers have in common is that they were cut into chunks or strips for use in creating this collage --

In the collage above, the main print, done in muted green and shades of lavender, was made using part of my 9" x 12" Garden Montage....

Today's second collage is below --

The left-side "backbone" of the above collage was cut from a green-black-purple print made with my 9" x 12" Palm Fronds Silhouette Large L791.  That same print contributed 2 smaller pieces to the horizontal bar.  Another small addition to that bar is a paint-stained piece cut from my 6" x 6" mask Small Tangled Pods s582.  The bar itself was cut from paper printed using my 6" x 6" Love.  Above that bar is another paint-stained piece cut from yet another 6" x 6" mask, Kaleid. Under the bar are still two more pieces cut from masks stained with acrylic paint.  The left was cut from 9" x 12" Mimosa L141Under the right side of the horizontal bar is a paint-coated piece cut from my 9" x 12" mask Prayer Flags L371.

Today's last collage is a companion to the collage directly above:

Because these two collages were developed as companions, , many of the same papers and paint-covered mask-bits were put into play.  A few of the elements differ:  Across the horizontal bar lies a piece cut from a yellow-green paint-stained mask designed by Trish McKinney, Undulating Line Waves.  Three small areas of the collage are paint-stained stencil-pieces (orange) that were cut from my 9" x 12" Tangled Pods L344.  The collage's focal area holds orange paper cut from a print made using my 9" x 12" It's a Jungle Out There L451.

Long is the list of my masks used in developing today's latter two collages; in their entirety, they look like this:
