Stencils and Water Colors
Two things I don't use hardly at all. Well, I am taking this awesome online course with Monica Zuniga (Hands & Heart) and she does really wonderful backgrounds using stencils, gesso and water colors. I have a "practice" journal that I use just to try out new things and I really like the way these pages came out.
I used the stencil with gesso (aha! it is not jUST for prepping paper!) and then I used various watercolors and my Caran de Ache water soluble crayons. It doesn't look half as nice in the scan as it does in person. I really like this technique.
