What’s the point about this stencil? Man…there is never enough dots- LOL. I love dots – and I use them all the time to tie things together – and I love the possibility of a nice background with it.  Check out some samples here:

Here is what I created for today:

I played a bit in my art journal -first creating a background with PanPastels.

Then I placed the stencil on top of the panpastel background and used an eraser through the stencil.

Here you can see how this erased the panpastel through the stencil. I fixated the background afterwards.

Then I added some old sewing pattern paper on top here and there and blended that in with some acrylic inks- as you can see..this lets the dots still shine through.

After spicing it up a bit here and there with stamps I used some Heavy Body Paint and applied this for texture over the Stencil too.

So much fun to layer it with different media to get some depth on an art journal page

    Love the bright colors! Question: did you use fixative to set the Pan Pastels before adding paint? I rarely incorporate Pan Pastels because of the mess, although I love them. I’m inspired to use them!

    I love the way you used the What’s the Point stencil on your journal page! And, the color are awesome! Now I have to own this one as well. If you keep introducing me to more stencils, it’s going to start taking a serious bite out of my paycheck!.
