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

    Nat, I love how “Whats the Point” stencil adds such wonderful “light” when using white in the dots. The layering is amazing. Very versatile stencil. TFS!! Hugs, Laura
