Masked and stenciled background. Frame style.
I'm definitely in the fall mood! I've been wanting to do some pumpkins for some time.
I wanted to highlight Rebecca Baer's stencils in the design.
I started by taping off a border around the canvas. I didn't measure-just eyeballed it.
The painted the whole inside with burnt umber. I used a "X" stroke to give more texture.
Then I stenciled warm white on top with Dragonfly Fantasy 12x12 stencil. When I got to the bottom, just flip the stencil over and connect the pattern.
Cascade Stencil size 5.75x5.75 to do the border. I turned it while going around the edge.
I sketched my pumpkins out with a white charcoal pencil, then painted them in.
I hope you're inspired to use your stencils in your artwork.
