Some Spray Paint & Journal Pages

I am taking Mary Ann Moss's Stencilry & Stitched & Stenciled classes. This is one of the pieces I have done so far. I am working up to the silhouette stencils--making them & spraying them. I have learned how to layer the stencils for some cool effects. I have even made my own designs! A ray burst & a flower mask/stencil. I am having FUN with it!

These next two pages are from my altered book art journal. This page was fun to do. But it doesn't feel done yet. Any suggestions? She has been like this for a while now.

This page I just did yesterday. It's watercolor, gauche & alcohol spritz. It has quite a lot of texture. I put the paint right on the page from the tubes. Some of the paint is old & drying out, that paint left blobs behind. Mostly the yellow. I like this as it is. I think I will scan it so I can use it in other projects. I have never scanned a piece of my art & reused it before!! I'm not sure why I haven't. Probably that inner critic--Darn her!!!
So have fun & don't let your inner critic get to you!!!!

I can't figure out how you made the stencil page. How did you get the white and black shapes with the grey in the background. You did a wonderful job making stencils. I like the journal page as is - it is so hard to leave open space. Add some words or hand written journaling.
