Paper Artsy Theme 3: Paint

The new PaperArtsy prompt is Paint. OK, I use paint on everything, so this is not helping - my muse needs something else to wake up. When I saw this post by Anneke De Clerck, I got an idea that I could use one of my tree stencils... It takes little to inspire me (but I usually deviate greatly from the piece that inspired me... LOL)

I first started with a stencilled tree shape. I went over it with black paint with a hint of purple.

I added some white splashes.

Then I applied various paints through the same stencil.

It needed a bit of "cleaning" around the leaves...

Finally I added a quote. I went over the letters with a Wink of Stella glitter pen.

[It was bugging me that the "Ideas" were not properly centred. So I added "My" in front. I love it when mistakes lead to improvement...]


  1. Ohh Pavla, this is lovely! how you so perfectly got colour on top of the leaves !! And I love the slash of white before adding the colours, great impact!

  2. Oh wow this is super gorgeous, so love the tree, awesome. Happy Art :-) Kezzy xxx

  3. Hi Pavla, I found you through the PaperArtsy blog :-) I absolutely LOVE this tree! Actually the whole page but I have a 'thing' about trees lol. Can you tell me where you got the stencil so I can buy it please, many thanks, Sharon xx
