A Cross Posting

I have information about these panels on my other blog today. Whenever I experiment with new art techniques I use Napoleon imagery. These samples are just for me so I might as well enjoy them.
.

I cut these stencils out myself. Napoleon is really an icon. These few small shadow blocks clearly show who he is.

Carmi, those are really fabulous, can't take my eyes from them.. and the way you composed Napoleon's silhouette in all those ornaments, shapes and cuts, it's simply fantastic.. and How did You do it, what technique is it? Some kind of spray-crayons? Please tell me...

PS: the Emperor would be very proud of You:)

I LOVE spray! Being one of those young people, I like modern art, but this beats everything so far! Loving the pink Napoleons. I like the fuzz round the edges. Beg tell, what did you use?
And the little crinkles in his coat - work of art. Worshiping it! You are a genius!

It's great, and I love the one at the top!
Just the stencil at the bottom, the pink one - it's really nice but I got confused with the patterns...
Maybe I've just got a very bad headache.

Carmi, those are beautiful. I love the details on the borders. It really frames Napoleon perfectly.
