Stencil Play

Had a fun day playing with the new STENCILS with great friend Erica (who also happens to be the editor of Down Under Textiles so it was technically a work day too)

I still have to master the art of spraying but do like the effect.
The Cathedral Series really worked well once I had the registration worked out. Quite simple really but it took me a couple of tries.
We tried them with Paintsticks which work well although a little slow.
The Steampunk Series have great potential too.

 

I love using oil pastel crayons with rubbings with the stencil under the fabric. This is a little tricky if you want to tile your stencils accurately but they do give a good sense of instant gratification.
 Aren't the Dragonflies gorgeous - these were done with oil crayons and a stencil brush
 This is the arrow pattern in the Japanese Traditional Series done with rubbing technique.
Erica was having good fun too 
and I loved the way she overlapped the designs. These will look great cut up .
This was just a short session but a great start. I think I am going to have a lot of fun with these.

It would be really great to get real comments instead of these spam ones.

I agree Lisa, the majority of comments on my blog are like these and I delete them. This aside, I love these new stencils and shall have to do something about them.
