I used Brshos for the background. I picked out Grey for the challenge and Dark Brown, because I thought it would combine nicely with the old book paper that I have used on each page of this mixed media calendar. The grey brusho turned out violet, the brown gave that pinkish-orange hue to the lower part of the page... Still something to learn about these! I continued with black, that gave those greyish cloud formations. The pink was nice, so I decided to enjoy it and forget the brown :)
|I think this really looks light light shining behind dark clouds :)|

I realize I'm not especially good at stenciling. Should perhaps get a hold of the stencil glue stuff, I always manage to spill stuff underneath the stencil. I fixed my spills with some opaque acrylic paints. Worked surprisingly well, in real life the "fixed" spots don't really show, somehow the camera seems to catch them with a blue hue.
So glad this is almost done, only December left! The previous pages of this mixed media calendar can be found here:
