This piece came together over many days. I worked myself into corners and back out again. A student of mine, Sally, gave me some cake decorating stencils she found at a thrift store. I used them to stamp the background. Love them and to think they were about a dollar purchase! This piece was just juried into the Summer NW Collage Society Art Show opening in July in Mukilteo, WA.
We all love a bargain, right?
Of course it takes a special eye to see the possibilities!
This piece is a perfect example of your great story-telling John!
Like the composition.
My icing stencils have been a mixed blessing - they are a bit too lightweight and the ones with writing too fragile. I guess they think one will be using them for icing sugar not paint!!!
