The red and the aqua samples I love. The navy blue was an attempt to salvage a scrap stencil gone wrong. I don't love it, but I like it well enough. I'll find it's way onto a card or the like someday.
When I decided to throw a couple of my own papers into my December Daily album, I went back to this technique. As I am trying to recycle as much as I can, I painted over some patterned scrapbook paper I got in a pad which I will never use, in this case an 8x8 inch piece of striped guitar print paper (on the right):
I painted over the striped paper with some red acrylic and then set about stenciling it with gesso.
If you look closely, you can still sort of see the stripes beneath the red paint. Now, instead of paper I have no use for, it's become TEXTURE. :0) Love that...and this paper.
