I made a couple of stencils today based on poinsettias. I made two different sizes of the same design.
This is the larger size and you can see I still have the cut out pieces too. If you’re careful, you can use these for a negative/positive image. With this type of plastic though it is hard to hold them in place. Perhaps I’ll try a bit of spray adhesive but I don’t really like that stuff because it gets all over the place.
Here’s the small design before I cut it out.
And the smaller one cut out. I put a bit of duct tape on the edges because there wasn’t a big enough border and I didn’t want to get paint over the edge.
I used one of my silk screened pages and stenciled a few poinsettias on the page. I used a portion of the stencil with green to make the leaves. I think this will make a nice Christmas card. I can scan it in, add some text and I’ll have a nice digital card.
Here’s a closer view of the bigger flower.
And I added a little yellow ink to this screen printed page. It looks a little more gruesome and fitting for Halloween perhaps than the poinsettias. Happy Halloween!
