The Elegant Mess….aka Playing with Paper & Paint

Fred Mullett was the guest teacher for the class titled, “The Elegant  Mess” at Angela’s Happy Stamper.   The class used masks and stencils to create very interesting cards.  

prepped_paperWe splattered H2O’s onto rice paper and then pressed various objects and stencils into the same page until it was full of colors and shapes.   We also spattered and "printed” using household objects and found object onto some water color paper.   These all became the “canvas”.



Next steps, we cut out shapes and frames and began to play and explore how the various colors would play with each other and started building our own cards.   We also cut out shapes using stencils….and decided whether to use the positive space or the negative space.




I completed 3 cards in class – two with just the painted paper as the adornment, and one with a stencil overlay on top of the painted paper.   It was a lot of fun….and as you can see, I have lots of papers left over for creating even more cards!  




(If I complete a fourth card, I’ll probably use the “frame” above with the urn centered inside.   I’ll probably use a solid colored background.)
