Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a safe and happy New Year! I went out on New Year's Eve for the first time in probably 20 years! Still home before midnight LOL
After spending a super-creative day with Barbara from Joggles.com, I woke this morning at 4:30 and couldn't stop thinking about building and cutting this 11" Dahlia stencil. By the time I got out of bed around 8:00, I knew exactly how I wanted to create it and got it designed and cut within an hour.
I'm still working with the same watercolors that are currently in my palette and I need to mix up some new ones but this combination is so soft and soothing. I was given a sample of the Peerless watercolors which contain explosive color and you can see that intensity in the magenta. I love those!!!
Of course I am loving the watercolor effects with the stencils and I'm hooked so you will see a lot more of this technique for sure. Sometimes I cut stencils on heavy card stock instead of acetate and this one is on black card stock because it was the only 12" size I had but you can see the flower design very clearly.
It was fun to dream up and even more fun to use!!! I've got to direct my creative juices to a project that I am working on that I can't wait to share with you!!! Soon!!!!
Have a super creative Sunday and ease yourself in to 2016!!
