Blue Beatrice Painting Step by Step

I wanted to paint something a couple days ago, but I didn't have any ideas. So, since I haven't played with my Molding Paste (Golden) in a while, I laid some mesh and a stencil on the canvas and pushed the paste thru with a pallet knife. I forgot to take a picture of this step.  It takes about 24 hours to completely dry. I let it dry overnight.

Still, a day later, I didn't have any firm concept, so I just started by slapping some blue and white paint on a 12" X 12" canvas. I started dripping, thinned, fluid acrylic and airbrush paint along the top of the canvas, just letting it go wherever it wanted.

I've been organizing my art supplies recently and have come across many, many things that I haven't seen in over a year. I have a rubber stamp by Pam Carriker (I love her art).  The stamp was 4" X 3", so I made a copy, enlarged it, cut a rough stencil out of cardstock and sponge the paint thru.

I can't stay away from the dots, lines and circles so, of course, I added them using the top of a small plastic container, a stamp that I cut out of an eraser, and stencil with dots.

I cut a, sort of, starburst stencil out of cardstock and added the rays with Golden Quinacridone Azo Gold.  I went back with some black gesso and re-painted the face.
