I am having some fun with spraying paint and stencil.

Fellow mixed media artist, Diane has visited my blog and left lovely comments. A post of hers gave me the idea to try something new. Like her, I printed an older piece on card stock after I altered the size to fit the board (6"x6") I wanted to use. Printing it out this way allowed me to add some pencil work to the picture. I added a little more highlighting on the forehead, nose and chin. And I wanted the eye a lighter brown. The other papers used in this piece are painted tissue paper and commercially printed patterned scrapbook card stock that I spray painted to make it my own.

|Crusade No. 45|
My color copies did not come out as intense as the original. The reds weren't as red and the yellow looks washed out but I still used them for the purpose of experimenting and learning. I painted on a corrugated cardboard which is showing up as pronounced ridges after a black and white gesso coating before I began to cover it with acrylic paint. I guess, I can try printing on different types of paper, too.
On this I spray painted with reds and greens using a store bought stencil and the bottom of the spray for the circles.
