I decided I needed a few different stencils to use with paper fabric lamination. I remembered that I had made a couple of voided shape designs in my Level 2 Stitch class that would be easy to convert to a stencil.
I used this photo of a butterfly to develop a design by “voiding” the shape. You really have to simplify the original image to do this.
This is the the piece that I made in my stitch class.
I have this thin plastic that Carole gave me. I”m not sure what it is. But it works great for stencils. I traced my butterfly design.
And then started cutting it out with a craft knife.
Here’s the finished stencil.
I tried it out in my sketch book with stamp ink pads.
Here’s the other design I developed in stitch class.
And this is the piece that I made at that time.
I followed the same process and here’s the other stencil.
I used acrylic paints first but it was a little messy so I tried again with the stamp pads.
This one was much cleaner. So now I have a couple more stencils to use for paper fabric lamination. Hope you’re having a great day 🙂
