Writing a shopping list

The inspiration piece at ARTastic this month is “Tea Time 2012” by Michael Duncan. It’s a hand cut 53 layer stencil! And of course the criteria is to use stencils/masks. Here’s my DT-layout:
I didn’t use 35 stencils... (And you don’t have to). I started with gesso on a template with cameras. Then I added some mist to make the cameras visible. I also used templates for doodling and to make different pattern with acrylic paint. Here are some close ups:
The photo shows DD on her way to the grocery store. Nowadays she is the one who writes the shopping list and she is SO proud.
Thanks for looking! The challenge is really fun (and easy for a lot of you) so I hope to see you playing along!!!
