Lori's Abstract 'Ghost Stamping' Slideshow!!!



video


For many years I was a decorative /faux painter and worked on HUGE surfaces...walls and ceilings. I painted murals, stenciled, troweled, plastered, climbed ladders & scaffolding and hauled buckets ( so GLAMOUROUS!!!) but what I really really loved most about it was just the freewheeling glee of SMOOSHING and LAYERING color all over a big white surface, sometimes with both hands flying in the paint... cuz if I didn't work quickly enough, I ended up in deep doo-doo with a sticky uncooperative mess on the wall...

ANYHOO, those years served me well - I still LOVE to smoosh paint, but on a mucho smaller surface.

 and without ladders.  yay!

Back then, one of my favorite decorative painting techniques was called 'ghost-stenciling' -  duplicating the look of old variegated fading wallpaper using a giant patterned stencil. It never failed to produce ELEGANT, BEAUTIFUL and slightly MYSTERIOUS looking walls...

SO!!!!

of course, it's perfectly logical, right?????  I just happen to have these oh-so-fun  RUBBERMOON STAMPS...and canvas...and curiosity...
