I spent the better part of last evening adding more layers and details to my 12" x 12" canvas. At this point, I remembered a diecut I have had for years, from back when I did a lot of scrapbooking. I unearthed it, along with a whole lot of other interesting things I have been saving for years. At first I thought I would just include it in my collage, but it was cut from cardstock, which made me think it might work better as a stencil. So here you can see the silhouette that was created by dry brushing blue acrylic paint around the edges of the diecut. I used a stencil brush, and moved it in a circular motion. I really like the ghostly look, I decided to shift it just a little and add another row of buildings, below the first...I then put the diecut back in it's original place, and used a toothbrush and watered down white acrylic paint to splatter stars around the buildings. I am very happy with the effect, and I still have the diecut to use on another collage. Enjoy!
