Mixed Media with Stencils



I have a shirt that I've been wanting to duplicate in some way.  I love the colors and the design.


 I started with a 9x12 fiberboard.  I applied a layer of gesso and allowed to dry. I sprayed some inks-blues and greens, allow to dry a little and then blot with paper towel.  Allow to dry completely. Using stencils I sponged vintage photo over top in various places.
 To highlight my stencils, I used black fine tip pitt pen and white broad tip pitt pen to make lines and dots.  It didn't show up good at first, so I sealed the top with Liquitex Matte Gel and allowed to dry.

My gorgeous flower-I took a piece of mixed media paper and wiped up the excess inks on my mat, ran the paper thru my big shot using a stampin up flower die.  Layered them and put a bead in the middle.  The leaves were cut with a cricut cartridge and then I ink them up a bit to blend.
I printed my sentiment on the computer using different fonts. 
I love how it turned out.  The blues and greens swirling....Oh-to finish it off, I rubbed Traditions black paint around the edges.

I hope you'll be inspired to pull a design from something you like to wear!!
Have a fabulous Friday!!
