Hello and welcome to Jessica Sporn’s Stencil Test Drive!
Jessica is a wonderful artist and one of my fellow DT-members at One Little Word.
Just look at those wonderful bubbles! Very useful for texture and pattern on a mixed media project or scrapbook page!
When I started planning for this test drive I had Jamie Cullum’s Momentum album playing on repeat. And my brain somehow made a connection between little Bubbles Girl and the song ‘Sad, Sad World‘. Because… how can you not smile when you see a little girl blowing bubbles!
I started out with a blank 12×12″ canvas and adhered random scraps of canvas to the surface with gel medium. Once that was dry, I gave the whole canvas a coat of gesso.
I used matte gel medium to apply the Bubbles Girl image onto the canvas. Once that was dry, I dug out my Twinkling H2O’s, watercolours and watercolour pencils and just started to play around with them.
I applied StazOn Stone Gray through the Bubbles Girl Stencil with a sponge to give the image more definition and I used a baby wipe and Nathalie Kalbach’s What’s The Point Stencil to lift a little bit of the watercolours from the background.
Thank you so much for stopping by and a very special thanks to Jessica for inviting me to test drive!
