Stencil Rebel


It’s interesting what excites us when we want to create.

This A4 Bee Art Stencil Flower Garden excited me.

What do I want to do with it?

I just love the new Bee Arty Bee the Sunshine Collection.

It was out on the table.

Instead my rebellious “WhatIF” caused me to do a 360 whirl×300.jpg

I guess it was the pink that I saw.

Often it is the reverse of double sided papers that excite me for my own makes.

I chose three papers and because I had no idea what I was going to do, apart from use the stencil,.

I used two of each design.



On the papers I used PaperArtsy Fresco Paints and a stencil brush as well as a 1″ soft brush.

I got the variegated look to the flowers by NOT cleaning the brushes and alternating between the two brushes each time I moved on to another flower.

I was happy with the result.

However my Rebel kicked in

With Paint Pens I ignored the stencil edges.

I was inspired by the daisies in the garden and now the stencilled edges provided texture and movement.

While I was watching, “The Amazing Mrs Mazell” on Amazon Prime I started cutting out my bouquet.

Are my flowers finished?

No way!

What will I do with them?

I have no idea yet!

This was an experiment and I am super happy with how they stencilled flowers turned out.

There’s a bonus too!

There is plenty of collage fodder  for another time.

Playing with no outcome is exactly that….PLAY!

Until next time


PS I am sure some of my flowers will become part of my Bee Arty Bee the Sunshine projects!

I am obsessed right now with selecting and planting up my new gardens with endemic plants for the wildlife.
