Stampotique and Stencils

Jane over at Stampotique Designers Challenge Blog
has asked us to use our stencils and a Stampotique stamp.

Well since starting mixed media and art journaling, my collection of stencils has grown....and more on my wish list :)

The background is a few different yummy colours of Dylusion sprays which I had done a few weeks ago.
Just love these. The colours are so vivid.
I chose to use my hexagon and circle stencils. The 3 large hexagons were created using black big brush marker. Highlighted with white charcoal pencil. The coloured shapes in the centre of the hexagons is bookbinding tape I have had forever! Love how it makes the hexagon 'pop'

I sprayed some smaller hexagons with black Dylusion spray on the right side of page. I then turned the stencil over and lay it down on the left side of page to give a negative pattern.
With the circle stencil I swiped some black paint with a wet wipe. Then I turned it over and placed it down on the other side of page to again leave a negative pattern.

I have used 5 Stampotique stamps,washi tape and the quote is from a Dylusions set.
