Doily Spread

This spread was the result of experimenting to see if I could use a paper doily as a stencil. It worked fairly well, but I think if I tried it again, I might spray the doily first with a sealer since it got kind of mooshy from the wet paint.

First I painted both pages with the dark green paint (English Ivy), and when dry laid the doily on top and stippled through the holes and across the top with the lighter Apple Green.

It was rather blah, so I tried to liven it up by using Prismacolor pencils in various places. I think this gave it kind of a stained glass look.

Love the doily effect, especially the one you colored in! Very pretty and delicate!
