Masks and Stencils - Happy Houses by Hannah

Hi all, Hannah here with a fun layered project for Masks and Stencils week!

This bright and bold canvas features Tando Whimsical Houses and a layered mixed media background.

First up; I introduced texture to the canvas by drawing modelling paste and crackle paste through an arrow and chevron stencil using a palette knife. Once dry I selected bright colours in DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics Primary Magenta, Primary Yellow and Cadmium Orange, and painted the canvas, using White Gesso to lighten and blend the colours.

Over this I introduced stencilled layers in the same colour way, dry brushing in between each layer to knock the colours back and to highlight the raised textures.

I also added stencilled words to the canvas, again in the same colours. To the raised areas I added patterns and details using a white pen.

The edge of the canvas has been finished in Paynes Grey, to give the impression of a boarder, and this same colour has been added to the canvas in lines using the edge of a palette knife.

The main feature of the canvas, the Whimsical Houses, have been painted in Black Gesso and given detail using a white ball pen. The houses have been mounted on foam pads, and stand on coordinated washi tape.

I hope you have enjoyed this project, see you soon for the next one!
