Layer Testing with Stencils

 playing with textures on drawing paper

swirls of fiber paste applied using a stencil and brush <-- coolest part

white gesso paisley applied using a stencil and brush

golden fluid acrylic small blue butterfly applied with stencil and brush

oil pastel large paisley applied with stencil and brush

mustard yellow alcohol ink swirl stencil applied with stencil and brush

pale yellow golden fluid acrylic butterflies applied with a mister filled with water and 1 drop of paint and stencil

lime green golden fluid acrylic alphabet letters applied with a mister filled with water and 1 drops of yellow and 1 drop of turquoise paint and stencil

purple neocolor butterfly applied with neocolor and stencil

random white-out correction tape

after all of that

painted lightly with brush and various thinned blue golden fluid acrylics to highlight textures and see what happened... the fiber paste was the ultimate coolest, the neocolor butterfly dissolved, the misted stencils and correction tape were covered; echoes of the painted butterfly, the alcohol inks and gessoed paisley showed through faintly.

It's all about layers!
