Alpha Challenge #06 - Palm Sunday

The letter of the fortnight over at The Craft Barn Alpha Challenge is "P". At first my mind went a complete blank in the "Special Day" department which is my theme for this challenge. Then I realised they set the challenge on St Patrick's Day!

There was no Patrick in  my dictionary but there was the Jewish festival of Passover but then next Sunday just happens to be the Christian Palm Sunday when Jesus made his triumphal entry into Jerusalem.

So Palm Sunday it was. I had another go at the multiple stencil technique as in my last post but this time I didn't use any newspaper nor the gesso. I guess one of those (probably the latter) served to mute the colours a lot as this page ended up quite vibrant. I also did a similar page for an Art Journal Round Robin I am doing at the same time (shhhh don't tell Dawn!)

So there we are - Palm Sunday.

Love those palm leaves and colours.....there was me thinking you would go for Pancake Day but that must just be my own preoccupation with food!
