On this piece the stencil outlines show clearly in the background. I really want to start using natural materials as "masks" (in AZ leaves and small flowers are in short supply), but will have to wait until time and weather cooperate here in MI.
Here I tried using artificial flowers over the paint to make my initial print, but unfortunately, the silk flowers were too transparent to shut out the sun's rays. There were some partial prints, but nothing very distinct. Oh well, I went ahead and stamped over it with my own "flowers."
