Not exactly cutting and spraying, but...

In my zeal to scour the internet and find any and everything related to stenciling, I came across this: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=301135.0 It's a tutorial for doing watercolor stencil portraits. 3 of my favorite things.
Then I went here: http://weigh-anchor.blogspot.com/2009/04/tutorial.html and saw the marvelous things she has been doing. So coming off of the success I felt from the Stencilry class, I thought I would try it.
Here's what I came up with...
and then because I can't leave anything alone it became this:
I really loved the process, combines two of my favorite things and don't think I'm done but boy do I love doing this. I used Twinkling H2Os instead of regular water colors so it's sparkly in real life. Just like me!
So when the wind blows and I can't be outside spraying, know what I'll be doing?

This is soooo cool!!! Even though I love playing with the spray paint, I'm not fond of the fumes or any of that. What a great idea AND what a great piece you have created!!
