Welcome to the Kae Pea StencilGirl Bloghop!
I had fun creating a little night scene with stencil and stamps by Kae Pea (Kristen Powers). I started by covering my canvas (or wood in my case) with musical tissue paper, letting it dry.
I then sketched out a circle from Kae Pea's Simple Geo circle stencil available from StencilGirl Products. It is a great stencil with lots of different size circles!
Once I had the scene sketched, I painted in the sky purple, the moon yellow and wiped away some paint to allow the tissue paper to show through.
The purple was a little much for me so I added a Pthalo Turquoise over it to make it more "night time" looking. I painted in the grass green.
I then used this lovely stamp from Rubbermoon Stamps (also by Kae Pea) to stamp on this tree to my night time scene using white paint.
I filled in some of the stamp with Raw Umber and colored the stars yellow. I added some white around the moon to create a "glow". I then used my thumbs to make two cats. I don't know why I thought of cats for this, because I don't own any cats, but it just said "cats" to me.
I fell in love with this stamp from Rubbermoon! It's kind of their logo and I love it. I really LOVE the moon and I just love her face here! I knew this was my moon for my painting!
Instead of being able to use this lovely stamp this time, I decided to use it for inspiration and I drew in my moon face. (my face is not nearly as cute as the stamp but I guess she was the face that was meant to come out in the piece!!) After she was drawn in, I used a palette knife and added in some texture in the grass, filled out my cats and voila ~ a dreamy night scene!
Got to love some purple kitties, eh?
I added a bit of glitter around the moon for some sparkle! Hope you have a sparkling moon in your future soon!
I then added a quote by ee cummings that says, "yours is the light by which my spirit is born. you are my sun, my moon and all my stars."
