Fun with Seth Apter & StencilGirl

Welcome to the StencilGirl blog hop featuring Seth Apter's newly released stencils.  

I love incorporating stencils subtly into my art for an extra layer of texture and interest.  I started with a canvas I had already prepared with collaged papers and paint - it was waiting for inspiration.  I immediately saw Seth's stencils in this to finish my vision.  In my mind they were just "enough" to add that final touch but still allow the background I created to shine through.

I sketched out my girl reaching for the sky.

I used Golden Fluid acrylic Titan buff and Titanium White with Seth Apter's Techo Insiders Star Stencils and Seth Apter's Urban Outsiders Stencil.

I used some Burnt Umber on the abstract ground and background with Seth's Techo Insiders Tag stencil and the Urban Outsider's stencil again.

I finished up with the details on the piece.

And this is how she turned out.

I may add a word or phrase later or just leave her like this.  I hope you enjoyed. Be sure to keep hopping along with all the artists listed below.  Also if you leave a comment, you will be entered for a giveaway!
