Stencils can be fun and quite easy to work with.
For this piece I took a scrap of Yupo laying around. (We all have plenty of these).
I moved the stencil around to find pretty areas revealed through the holes in the stencil.
Traced the inside with a white gel pen.
Use a black marker and Adirondack Pitch Black to hide everything else.
Placed the image on a golden mat to see how it would look.
Easy and fun.
