I adore stencils!! I love using the texture paste on top of a black gessoed wood board. The effects are stunning. Then to enhance the designs with the Prima oil pastels and paints really makes them pop. One of the tricks that I love to do is to extend the design out by drawing similar designs out from the stencil work. I think this helps "marry together" the elements of the background. Also, combining organic shapes and geometric shapes are one of my favorite ways to use stencils.
Here is a short video of the process. enjoy!!
