I chose a simple droplet design drawn onto oaktag.

Using a craft knife, I carefully cut out all the drops. Slow and steady cutting will yield the best results.

I positioned the stencil on my journal page and taped both parts down to my bench top.

Using black gesso and a cosmetic sponge, I dabbed the paint onto my stencil.
In order to fill my art journal page with the design, I flipped the stencil and adjusted it until it made me happy.
Funny thing happened after removing the stencil, my raindrops/teardrops design had changed. Against the pink, green and orange painted butchers paper, the black drops morphed into watermelon seeds.
