Stencils with Adirondack Color Wash Sprays

This week, I assembled a new sketchbook using decorative paste paper that I'd made last year with stamps and texture tools. The paper needed some pizazz- stencils to the rescue. I sprayed the stencils with Adirondack Color Wash. It's an acid free, non-toxic, water-based dye that comes in a variety of colors. I like to use it because it's indoor safe. The green gold acrylic was stippled through a stencil and the reverse side printed.I treated the back cover with a different stencil and "raisin" Color Wash spray.
I drew these little clay animals this week for our Tuesday sketch date.

Hi Paula,
I like the direction your work is moving in. You do so many different things, I am impressed!
I read your blog about attending a workshop at La Cascade and was happy you had a great experience there. I scheduled a last minute workshop there in Sept.2-9, 09 and wanted to tell you about it and ask you to pass on the info to anyone you could. Can you contact me? thanks so much, Barbara Roth

Thanks, Barbara, for reading my blog. You'll really enjoy La Cascade, Durfort and this part of France. I highly recommend the area for art inspiration.
