Twilight Flight

This is my Luna moth flying over some flowers at twilight. 

I used various torn papers; Japanese, dictionary and a map.  I glued them to mat board and gave them a white wash with gesso.  Then I use watercolor paint disolved in small spray bottles to stencil the flowers and the leaves.  I used acrylic paint to stencil the white flower and the moth.  The moth and flowers were defined with charcoal pencil and some acrylic paint.  The words were stamped on.  I loved using the stencils! I've never used them with watercolor before and it was a lot of fun!
