a little high right now...

The beginning of a stencil obsession. Picked these plastic doily's up at a thrift store and knew this was what I was going to do. Some day I would like to cut some stencils too, but, hmmm, when will that be? (I have used these circle stencils on the encaustic too...I love me some circles!)
Took it outside with a couple of waxed sheets from my Chex Mix making stint this holiday season. (Those Chex cereal bags are the biggest ones, I always save them for art painting - gesso'ing and matte medium slathering). Even though I sprayed outside, with plenty of ventilation, the fumes still affected me.
Flipped the still a bit wet stencils into my art journal.

Also posted a few more collage a day cards...more to come.

Argh! That's beautiful! Are you going to add to the painting, or is it done?

Hey, can you make me some chex mix without the pretzels and mail it to me? Pleeeese??? (I like the dark chex best!)

Love these! And what are you supposed to use the doilies for really if not stenciling? A tea party or something maybe?

I found a large flat earring on the sidewalk today. My companion said "There's a earring." At the same time I said, "Stencil!"

Your work is quite inspiring to me! One day, one day.
