I hate to waste paint - so I made this from wet acrylic paint from a previous project. As a mask for the "leaper," I used the form I had cut out to make the jumping girl stencil. Then I sprayed around it with Adirondack color wash to give it some depth.
Using the Balzer Designs punchinella stencil, I added some texture on the left, and painted swirls with watered down gesso. The lettering is a mix of my hand and stamps. I painted shadow around the form (right side and under is the mantra I repeat to myself) and I love how it looks like it's popping out of the page!
Also today, a design for Mother's Day. There's nothing like being a mom to give you perspective on your own mother. When we're young, we lack the wisdom to appreciate our mother's advice. By the time we have our own children, we realize all too well that a mother's strength rests in the love of her children.
Thanks Mom - for raising me to be a creative, caring person, just like you!
