Sue Pelletier always makes me laugh. In a class, in the hallway, on her Facebook page. There is an infectious sense of humor in her that just makes everyone around her take deep belly laughs. She also brings out the kid in me. Her stencils are FUN, remember FUN for the sake of FUN. Well, with this thought in mind I began my double journal spread using this sweet stencil, Loose Dress #1, on a stamped sheet of paper. I ran it through with Wendy Vecchi silver embossing paste and began to color it in with colored pencil.
I finished coloring in the dress and highlighted all around the outside with white paint.
This is when my inner child took over. I cut out the image in a wave pattern and set it aside. Using bright inner child colors I painted a loose sun, drew a dragonfly, and randomly collaged magazine images around the page. I added some wash tapes too. With posca pens I scribbled and dotted the wet inky color all over in gleeful abandon feeling like the child I remembered so well.
Hop along and see not only what the fab Sue Pelletier has in store, but all the whole StencilGirl gang to be part of the giveaway.
