Today, I'm blog hopping with a group of amazing artists. We're all using one of Cecilia Swatton's beautiful stencils from Stencil Girl! I chose to use her 6 x 6" Gingko Leaves stencil:
I decided to alter a plain wooden box from Michaels:
I used gold acrylic paint to stencil the beautiful leaves onto tissue paper.
I painted the box green, and then adhered the leaves using matte medium. I love how the tissue paper "melts" away, and creates a beautiful texture.
I used my Borders stencil from Stencil Girl to decorate the outside of the box, and added some word stickers from Tim Holtz.
I videotaped some of the process. Enjoy!
You can also watch "Box With Gingko Leaves" on You Tube.
