Welcome to the StencilGirl & Seth Apter Blog Hop! I will be creating this fun-sized canvas (6x6) with Seth's Timeless stencil available at StencilGirl Products.
I began by giving my canvas a color wash and I sprayed lots of water on it creating some movement in the paint which I really liked. Not having a plan at this point, I immediately "saw" a gorilla in the organic swirls. Can you see him??
So I decided to "bring out" the gorilla with sketching and additional paint.
Then I put Seth's Timeless stencil to work using parts of it for jungle greens, some for gorilla texture, the ground and of course some abstract bananas!
I really love how versatile this stencil is, I had no idea where I was going to go with my canvas and I was still able to use the stencil to enhance my vision!
Here are some close ups of the finished canvas:
I finished him off with a "G" from Carolyn Dube's Jumbo Vintage Typwriter Alphabet stencil. I can see him hanging in a nursery one day!
