For the MIX challenge this week we're giving reverse stenciling a try. I followed this blog post which outlines the process. I used two different colors of acrylic paint on my bg. I painted the first layer and let it dry and then applied another color and placed my stencil on top. I wiped away the paint from the open parts using a baby wipe and then carefully removed the stencil. I found that when I pulled it up some of the paper came with it. I kind of liked this look. If you use gesso as your first layer you will get a more detailed or clearer print. I sponged around the edge with black DO, doodled, and added my "calm" lady (who apparently never gets mad or flustered..I wonder why?)....Come join us this week and have fun with stencils!

What a fun sentiment, and the chunky EP looks super.
I had a go, not very successful, with AI on my small media plate the other night. Maybe it was too hot, too dry or something but all bar the first one, the paper stuck to the plate. So I did NOT go for that look today with the stencil , but it does look great with your vintage lady.
