Have you ever ended up with more stencil-printed papers than what your art journal will hold?
How about getting out the scissors and cutting some of those prints into pieces?!
Pieces that form shapes; shapes that move in new directions....
Above, some simple squares, rectangles and circles have created a village in some magical place far away!
Below, more simple cut-outs have come together to make an abstract design --
|Above: The center of interest was cut from a print made with the 6" x 6" stencil Webbed Medallion.|
|6" x 6" Webbed Medallion|
Other stencils used in making the original prints include:
|6" x 6" Pavilion Shadows|
|Above: the print, before it met the scissors!|
|6" x 6" Sprigs|
|Above: This is not one of the Sprigs-printed prints that got cut up, but it's similar.|
Today's post shows one last abstract design created with shapes cut from stencil-prints --
|Above: A 9" x 12" mixed-media collage on stretched canvas. The black-and-purple printed papers are computer-generated.|
The main stencil that went to work making these prints:
|9" x 12" Garden Montage|
In the 9" x 12" collage on canvas shown above, I used a three-piece stencil set with acrylic paints in creating shapes to correspond with the computer-generated strips of paper (black figures on purple backgrounds.)
I developed these black figures on purple backgrounds in Photoshop; and when I imported similar images into Photoshop, it became the birthplace of this three-stencil set.
What three-piece stencil set? Wait and see!
