Weekly Art Challenge - Stencil

I think we're up to the third week of our art challenge - missed a few weeks when Ben was back :p
This week was Stencil, not the most glamorous but this challenge had a practical element! 



I love moths so I went the moth route, I was constantly thinking about creating a stencil that would hold up in it's stencil application but then I saw Ben's stencil and realised maybe I should been a tad more creative :p
Our next week's challenge is a fun/cute one, oddly enough I picked the stencil's theme and next week's theme, Kookaburra, Ben picked :)

 Hey if you want to play along feel free to do so!

  2. Love that you are frequently inspired by nature for your art :) It's the first time I've heard about the Kookaburra, but the name sounds interesting, hahaha I looked it up and it's a very pretty bird, hooked for the next one!

    1. Oh true, I didn't even realise the nature connection :) Kookaburras are awesome because they have a big head and are related to the Kingfisher who funnily enough I also like for their big heads :P he he he
      Probably the best thing about Kookaburras though is that there bird call sounds like they are laughing, there was a bunch outside in the tree yesterday and they were so noisy and funny I had to go have a peak!

  6. Thanks Trishie! Yeah I felt I cheated a bit when I saw how intricate Ben's was, I was using the stencil as an excuse to slack off I think but after seeing Ben's stencil (we spray painted under the house) intricate stencils can definitely hold up! lol
