Had a play day last week and finally made use of the learning from Mary Ann Moss's stencilry class (sorry, no longer available for new sign-ups). First thing was to cut some stencils - fell in love all over again with my fabulous versatool. I bought it after making my Celtic Cutwork and I've shared a couple of other projects where I've used it to make organza flowers and transfers. I think I'll be using it more regularly now...It has a special tapered point that makes stencil cutting a breeze. These are what I made in my very first session!

Then went ahead and had a play with them using Plasti-Kote sprays from our local hardware store. Preferably use outside or in a really well ventilated area. It's really nice to have a limited colour palette...which is not to say I won't be buying more colours!
I also had some fun spraying over previously gelli-printed backgrounds
Collage and gelli-printed base from almost a year ago...transformed
This next masked gelli-printed page wasn't working for me
but I sprayed over it to produce this page
which you might recognise if you saw my last post.
I still love using my spray inks, but it's really fun to have another spray option which gives different effects. Happy day - must be repeated :-)
