Favorite Technique

Good afternoon :) I hope you all have had a fantastic weekend... I did, with my scrapin friends!!! We had many laughs and were quite productive too :)
I have a mixed media board to share today that features one of my favorite techniques... stencilling :)

Like my previous board....this board gave me much angst!! My daughter requested a "blue" board for her wall, so I envisioned a much lighter coloured board that would show all the stamping on tissue paper that I had as a base layer to show through...but of course with my spray inks and lack of experience, the colour came out way to dark. I should of watered down the ink on a kraft sheet first! 
 So this board got put down and picked up many many times with accompanying names associated with it!...I hated it, then liked it, then disliked it, then finally I loved it LOL!! It took hours to make :) Happy to say my daughter likes it!!!

Hope you have a great day! Hugs, TRace

I love your board! I think it totally rocks! All of the background flowers remind me so much of the 60s...very "retro" feeling. Love the butterflies and the doilies, too. And the saying is so true and what a great sentiment to share with your daughter for her room. Thanks for sharing your board with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy

Bond says....yay way to stick with it. It was fun to watch it transform into a beautiful work of art. So glad you both really like the finished product. Thanks again for a fantastic time.
