Stencilling Nefertiti

Went to see my grandson be enrolled into the cubs last night. Ahhhhhh making his promise and giving the cub salute Ahhhhhh.

Had a bit of a play with the Nefertiti stencil - not sure where they are going yet.
This one is stencilled on yellow card and I have covered it will a Japanese tissue - have a vague idea what I might do next.

I played with different mediums for the blue one - used some lustre waxes and some green interference paint and a green iridescent twinkling H2O - some had one over the other. Again - don't know what to do with this one or if I will do anything.

I scanned this one so it doesn't show the colours all that well as they are all reflective. I had to dye down the blue card too to get a darker blue and I also sealed it with a thin coat of acrylic matt medium. It has bowed it a bit in spite of being pressed.

Have reached the last chapter of the book which will have the most changes in it so back to that now.

These are lovely, Shirley, I particularly like the top one, it's very striking, and the composition is perfect, I think I'd leave it as it is if it were mine.
