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
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?
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.
