Stencilbop Challenge Prompts 17 & 18

Here is a recap of prompts 17 and 18:

August 17 – Distress!

I love the soft and chalky- kind of shabby chic ;)  look of white gesso.

So I used white gesso on a sponge to dab through my Art Deco and Ornament Wallpaper Stencils. I also used some of my rubber stamps with white ink to add to the fan of the Art Deco Stencil. 

August 18 – Pastel

I love pastels – especially pan pastels and they are perfect to use with stencils. 

For this art journal spread I first applied a layer of different pan pastels to the background. 

Then I used my Manhattan and my Kassel Stencil on top of the background and alternated between erasing the pan pastel through the stencil and apply a different color of pan pastel through the stencil. 

Pan Pastels are another perfect medium to play with Subtraction and Addition :)  …see math is a good skill even for an artist LOL

Here are some of the supplies I used in these prompts:
