Polka Dots Stencil. Perfect for mixed media projects. Hand drawn stencil, cut on my laser cutter. Each stencil will be slightly different only because it is hard to get the cut exact every time.
Stencils measure just inside 8.5 by 11 inches. The design is laid out in landscape mode, which is perfect for using in journals.
Example using the Polka Dots Stencil to create a gel print.
The stencils are hand drawn using an iPad. Then the image is brought into an editing software to create into a cut file. Using a commercial laser the stencils are then cut using a mylar sheet that is .007 thick. These stencils are very thin and work great on gel plates. Therefore, gel printing with these stencils is fun, because the designs are unique.
Stencils are a great way to add color and texture to journal pages, mixed media art and more.
Use a soft oval blending brush and ink to create a direct to paper design. Apply ink through only a portion of the stencil or the whole design.
Spray Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists through the stencil and mop up with a second sheet of paper to get two designs with one spray.
Layer stencils for unique patterns.
