Stencils, canvas and paint OH MY! Hey there artsy peeps Rita Barakat here with this pillow form from Canvas Corp! It is super thick and a perfect place for lots of layers and mixed media!
After drawing a basic design I used a little Gesso and several TCW stencils. I used : TCW487 Alhambra, TCW483 Spotted, TCW481 North Star, TCW488 Viva La Art
After adding gesso and drying it I started coloring with Gelatos.
I added lots of color, after filling in I continued to add more color with stencils.
You can see where areas with gesso pop underneath the color. I continued to add more color with the stencils, then went back with PITT pens for details.
Here it is all finished! Looking lovely, I hope this makes you want to grab your stencils and go paint something!
