Stencil 1 Walnut Stain, applying it at different pressures, to create light and shade

Stencil 2 Black Soot

Stencil 3 Surfboard applied lightly on florals, Magenta lightly for lips/eyes

Stencil 4 Surfboard with more intensity on florals, Magenta with more pressure on the eyes

Stencil 5 Limeade

Stencil 6 Hedgerow
