Spring has sprung and the garden is getting out of control! One of the things I've been doing during these crazy times, is experimenting with journaling and online classes etc. One of the journal exercises I had a lot of fun with was by Karen Stamper. She did a lot of scribbling, painting, drawing- in a really freestyle form to make a garden drawing in black and white.
This is my version using hand made stencils and Brusho! And it is super colorful. Best part about it- you don't need to know how to draw at all!
First I "drew" simple designs on the freezer paper with the glue gun. I peeled these off to act as one sort of stencil. My second sort of stencil were free cut out of freezer paper.
Brusho I could find, a couple of Brusho Sprays, Spray Bottles, Wax Resist Sticks, a fat candle, brushes, palette and a sponge.
First I drew on my paper with the wax resist sticks and candle- random scribble lines as well as repeating my leaf forms. Then I laid out my stencils.
You also can rip out leaf shapes from other paper and sponge around them- or sponge inside a hole you ripped out in a leaf shape!
I had picked some leaves and laid them on a stamp pad- pushing down with a piece of paper on top and then stamping them into the painting.
