One Stencil -- PRAYER FLAGS -- Used Many Eays

One stencil can be used to get a big variety of prints!

My 9" x 12" stencil Prayer Flags, for example ...

Above:   For this print I started with white glossy cardstock; after making an acrylic paint monoprint on it, I used a contrasting color of acrylic paint with the stencil.

Above:  This greeting card started with a print that I cut to size with Fiskars deckle-edged scissors.  After adding the paper to the card with a gluestick, I used heavy gel medium to fasten the heart into place.  To prepare the heart, I'd collaged an older print over a blank wood heart (from a craft store); then I'd trimmed it with fine-detail scissors.

Above: multiple layers of prints on stretched canvas.

Above:  Here, I used the stencil twice, side by side.

Above:  Again, multiple prints were made with the stencil, one atop another.  With each print, I used a different color paint and placed the stencil at a different angle than had been used in the earlier prints.

My 9" x 12" stencil Prayer Flags looks like this in its entirety --
