Summer's Flowers

 Although the glitter doesn't show up very well on the first art sample below, I'll launch today's post with it because making it helped me in welcoming a long-awaited summer!  

Before introducing the squeeze-bottle glitter-glue, I placed my 6" x 6" stencil Budding Branches s249 on a 6" x 6" greeting card blank and sprayed the surface with green watercolor in a mister bottle. 

Today's second piece started life as a sheet of newsprint that I was using to clean stencils after using them elsewhere.  But I liked the results, so I added a frame using the same acrylic paint and a sponge brayer.  This print was made with part of my 6" x 6" stencil Swatton Flowers Version 1 s078...


In making the print below, I first covered an old encyclopedia page with a layer of Titanium White acrylic paint.  After that had dried, I used red-orange acrylic paint with my 6" x 6" stencil Silhouette of a Wildflower Bouquet s236.  In the very center of this image, you can see a subtle print of a flower that was an illustration in this pre-1923 encyclopedia.  

Today's final pair of prints were made with two of my 9" x 12" stencils -- Mimosa 9 L141 and Thistles L594.  Foreign newsprint was the substrate I chose; some of its lettering is still visible in both backgrounds below --


In its entirety, Thistle 9 L594 looks like this --

And Mimosa Stencil 9 L141 in its 9" x 12" version looks like this --

(Also available:  Mimosa 6 Stencil s126 which measures 6" x 6".)

Finally, in its entirety, Swatton Flowers Version 1 s078 looks like this --
