Modern Dance.


I created three 12″x 12″ pages using photos of myself doing modern dancing.
Scanned with an Epson WF 3620

I made the background using stencil/masks and mist sprays.

I first used a light color (Blue Berry shake). Work on a covered surface and clean your stencils/masks afterwards.

I used another stencil/mask and sprayed a Homemade mist in a darker color. I mixed blue food dye in an alcohol spray bottle, which I get at the Dollar stores.

WARNING
Rubbing alcohol
 or isopropyl alcohol.  Should be used in a well-ventilated area due to inhalation hazards. Poisoning can occur from ingestion, inhalation, absorption, or consumption of rubbing alcohol.

I covered one side of the background with a Laser cut stencil by Forever in time and inked the card-stock using an eye-shadow applicator.

Beginner Mixed Media Background.

I use alcohol spray bottles, which I get at the Dollar stores to mix my own mists. The recommendations are to use higher alcohol content, but I refill them using 90%.
