I haven't really used stencils in my art work before, so this month's chunky page theme was something new for me. My dear friend, Lisa, generously gave me a "Venice" stencil which her company, Artistcellar, carries. Who knew the canals of Venice would make such a stunning graphic? I played with metallic purple and gold spray inks (which are the colors of Carnevale di Venezia). The stencil is 8.5" x 11", so I was able to make my chunky pages two-sided by cutting two 8 x 4" strips and folding them in half. But I still felt that my pages were missing something...That's when I came up with the idea to use the Comedy/Tragedy masks to decorate my pages.
