Welcome to the Nathalie Kalbach StencilGirl Stencil Hop! Nathalie has designed some awesome stencils for StencilGirl (who I happen to be VERY partial to) and we are here to showcase her Oldtimer Stencil.
Want to see the process?
This one is dedicated to my son who is leaving for college in 23 days...
Scribble some random thoughts in my head with a variety of paint markers. Scrape white, light blue and dark blue paint over the page. Don't worry :) the left over went onto another page that was waiting.
I then used another of Nat's StencilGirl stencils, What's the Point, with the same colors to add some texture to the blue. I then took some grey paint and painted a road and scratched through it with the end of my paintbrush. I used the Oldtimer Stencil over and over moving down the road. Yes, I could have stopped here and been happy, but I kept going.
Then I painted in all the cars with white gesso--except for the first one which I did red. On a scrap piece of paper I used some left over blue paint to make a stencil mask.
I stenciled over the red car with black paint. Then in order to not distort each of the next car images I put the mask over the previous car. I continued this all the way to the top.
The globe in the corner tells my story.
