Ismene Says Peace

My Ismene stencil is back — because why make a stencil if you’re not going to use it multiple times?

I really liked how my yellow lines against black turned out in my Hope piece, so for this I wanted to try white on black.

Doodles and Daffodils

In this piece, I’ve played with transparency vs. opacity. I alternated black lines over a solid yellow background with yellow lines over the dark parts of the photo.

I used a grey mask behind the text. The yellow text was still a little hard to make out, so I added a drop shadow, plus bevel and emboss, to give it more dimensionality.
