Silhouettes by Titbelsoeur

Salut les patouilleuses !

This is Titbelsoeur here, showing you my last canvas... I wanted to use silhouettes on this piece, so I selected a man and a woman on a clothing catalogue (they are perfect !). And I traced their silhouettes on a OHP slide (you know, things from the former century, that nobody ever uses now ;-) and cut them out so that I kept both parts.

But before using them, I had a ball with a few background stencils you may find HERE and THERE,and when I was satisfied with my background, I finger-painted my silhouettes around :

To end, I used the watches background and calligraphic mat stamps here :

 and the dots background and the words Man and Woman from the Collage art plate there :

I hope you like my canvas,

thanks for stopping by, 

I am looking forward to reading your comments ! 

A très bientôt !!
