Layers with Stencils and Masks

I love putting orange and green together! -- they bring out the best in each other.   Today's first art sample is an intense orange-red acrylic print on sturdy tissue paper.  The stencil used for this background print is 6" x 6" Sprigs (a.k.a. "the stencil with the hidden angel!")

The dark green border was likewise printed with acrylic paint; and for this, the stencil put to work was 6" x 6" Ivy Frame 6.  (A similar border is available in a 9" x 12" size -- Ivy Frame 9.)

Lots of other colors play well together, too!  Another double-stencil-print is below.  Pavilion Shadows measures 6" x 6" and so does the mask Small Tangled Pods.  (Small Tangled Pods is just one in a series of pod-themed stencils and masks:  6" x 6" Small Dangled Pods stencil, 9" x 12" Dangled Pods stencil and 9" x 12" Tangled Pods.)

Above is a third double-stencil-print; the pale blue and green  background print was made with a homemade temporary cardboard stencil -- no longer in use since it lacked the durability and precision of a StencilGirl laser-cut stencil.  The top layer was made with my 6" x 6" stencil Kaleid

Below, in layers of acrylic paint, the two 6" x 6" stencils used were Sprigs and Tiger Lily-- 

Above:  Tiger Lily (6" x 6") and 9" x 12" Prayer Flags.
