Stencils...and Masks


This pear stencil, of a photo I took, was cut using freezer paper. I then ironed it to canvas and painted the pear using Golden fluid acrylics. Then, I masked it and sprayed the background with Tsukineko's Walnut Inks and added more Goldens. I machine quilted it and then added a binding. The tag is painted canvas and stamped.

This one is done on canvas, also. It is a mask of my beach bird taken from one of my photos. The background is painted with Golden Fluid acrylics and I added some swirl stamps. Then I place the mask over it and sprayed it with the Tsukineko Willow Walnut Ink. (Thus the green bird mask below, which actually gives me more ideas as I love green birds). I don't know what I will make from this piece, maybe a journal cover.

Too cute green beach bird...wouldn't it be cool if God made some real ones this color? : )

LOVE your pear! Keep wanting to make some pear artwork for my kitchen, unfortunately, there are so many ideas in my brain and not enough time to do them all.

I too love the pear. Thanks for telling us how you did these.
Green birds - Hmmm - me thinks you must love the colour green. Mine would be purple. Great creation by you(:
