The sentiment I'm sharing with you today is this: "The Other Side of Me"
by ©Peggy Gabrielson
This mixed media project challenges me, continuing in the color pink. I added warm colors to it to make me happy... The sentiment was created digitally, because I wanted the words to simulate movement of being flipped.
How did I accomplish this?
Step 1. I started with a water color background on card stock.

Step 2. Once dry I placed my half face stencil on top of it.
Step 3. Take a scoop of each modeling paste and metallic acrylic paint mixed to the color desired.
Step 4. Use a palette knife to spread on the Art Stencil, making sure the crevices are covered.
Tip: Spread the gesso mixture over the stencil, working fast. The gesso needs to stay wet to remove the stencil for a clean lift and good impression.
Step 5: Lift it straight up from the cardstock.
Step 6: Add white Sharpie to highlight, and acrylic paints of yellow and green.
Step 7: Once all layers have dried give it a couple of coats by spraying with a fixative.
I loved how I got the texture of her features. I like this enough to consider making this as a smaller art stencil in size for art bookmarkers to give away or sell. What do you think?
