The love of stencils

This is another page from my gigantic journal. I started by pasting on the black and white image of the face. Then I used my stencils and acrylic paint to add lots of patterns around it. I did this several times with different stencils and colours. I then applied a wash over the face to give it some colour. Then came several layers of spray paint followed by more layers of oil pastels. To finish I coloured her facial details and added the last little details, i.e. the washi tape, stones, letters and the rose to her cheek .
