Decorated newspaper

I got the inspiration for these pieces from Julie Fei-Fan Balzer.

They started out as a page of the Guardian Newspaper. I tore it in half and covered both sides of each piece with gesso. Then it was just fun! Lots of acyrlic paint in lots of colours applied through stencils, with the occasional spay of Color Wash or Crafty Notions' matte white spray. On the first piece I used a white pen to outline some of the patterns.
