Stencil-Print Scraps for Making Faces!
Here are stencil-made prints that have been cut up and assembled into a face.
I tested the face against two dissimilar backgrounds before gluing down the pieces:
The top background of the face -- and the nose -- were cut from a print made with Two Vases (9" x 12") stencil.
Each eye was cut from a different print, both prints having been made with Medallion (6" x 6".)
The faces's lower background was cut from a double print -- a yellow bottom layer made with Mimosa Stencil (9" x 12") and a gray top layer made with Sprigs (6" x 6".) The smiling red mouth was cut from a print made with Medallion (6" x 6".)
Assembling a face using bits of stencil-prints is every bit as much fun as building paper dolls with them!
I used free-hand cut-outs, but for anyone who wants to use a stencil, I suggest this one by Andrew Borloz --
Kunst Mask 2 -- which looks like this:
