Clearly, I am going to use this brick stencil A LOT. It is just so effective and provides the perfect background for so many things. It also saves me a lot of time because normally I would be faffing about looking for a suitably patterned paper to use as a background, or mixing up (and wasting) lots of different colours of paint. Plus, the best thing about using this stencil is that the less precise you are, the more it looks like real bricks. Yay!
I wasn’t sure what phrase or words to put on the sign, but kept coming back to “Choose your own Adventure”. It just seemed right. It almost looks like she is encouraging people to climb through the hole in the wall and find out what lies beyond.
I’m not quite convinced about her hand – I generally do cartoony-type hands (quite often with only four fingers) so I was going out on a limb trying to do a more realistic one. But, hey, it’s not too bad. I hope. Try not to focus on it – Look away now! 🙂
Thanks, as always, for popping in x
