I have come to enjoy working on wooden panels and boards instead of canvas. There is something about the sturdiness that makes it easier to glue down papers and collage.
I started on this panel with no plan, and honestly very little inspiration. I began with my torn papers like usual, and then decided to just take a bunch of stencils and throw color down, because it was better than just sitting there staring. Well, that really got my juices flowing, and the rest just kind of poured out!
My favorite moment of the whole project was when I added the alcohol, and it created little circles in the paint, allowing you to see the layers underneath. Let me tell you, I had a hard time covering that up!
I truly hope you enjoy the project!

Fun Fact: 1. In my day job I am a Sonographer (ultrasound technician). 2. Both of my boys have the same first name (one is mine, and one is my husband’s). We get looks like we are crazy whenever we introduce them to someone new.
