Going Undercover DLP challenge

The second challenge  for the month of February at DLP was to "Cover up the good stuff". This was not an easy project for me. Anyways this is what I came up with.  
I had a page where there was some leftover paint. With the help of  a  handmade stencil I drew the pattern and painted them.
Next, I glued the handmade stencils on the page.

I then gave a background wash using acrylics.I finished the page with some bold black outlining over the patterns.

Then came the hard part. I covered up one side of it using white texture medium. I also wrote over it with black paint and brush. 
" Good stuff can be hidden under the layers. It need not be always on the surface."

I feel this to be very true especially of human nature.

I am happy with the way how I created this page for last week's challenge. 
That is it for this week.

  1. First of all, I love the end result of covering up-it leaves a bit of mystery! And I also love how you are creating such wonderful art with minimal supplies. Hope all is going well.

  2. I loved seeing your process and I love covering stuff up but allowing some stuff to still show through.

  3. What a great metaphor.... I think many things are exactly like that...the good stuff hidden! This piece turned out beautifully and has inspired me! Thanks for that!
