Maggie used pages from a book and torn music sheets for her background. She then made her own stencils from images found online, cut out her images from paper, and sponged over them with acrylic paint. She sprayed a light spray of ink over the top. Beautiful effect!
Deb loves her turtles! She used a painted background with a circle stencil and sponged paint. That that she added the turtles cut from kimono paper she brought along with her. She wanted the words about exploration and journeying in her piece to give it a sense of adventure. Over the top she used a rubber stamp of turtles to give it the effect of a whole school of turtles swimming together. This photo turned out great, and brought out the rich browns and subtle tones Deb used.
Nitza had a wedding and lovers in mind when she created this magical dance of dragonflies, the spirits of lovers and the script paper with gold ginko leaves. Her background is music with words about love and being together forever. What a sweet and tender expression of loving spirits!
