My March 7 post showed a print that began with s867 Abstract Composition Backbone Mask # 4.....
..... and its next version, a multi-layered print that I developed using scissor-customized s864 Abstract Composition Backbones # 1.
Now, that multi-print has been cropped and added to the front of a greeting card.
And over that background, I've added a cut-out from a print I'd made using 9" x 12" Tangled Pods L344.
The photo below shows the collage on my completed greeting card cover.
One easy way to make people-shaped cut-outs is to use Valerie Sjodin's Small Figures People.
Another way is to flip thru a clothing catalog or magazine and pick out a photo of a model. Below: a catalog figure and a print created with s864 Abstract Composition Backbones # 1 and s867 Abstract Composition Backbone Mask # 4.
Below: I've used masking tape to secure the figure to the printed background.
Below: Using fine-detail scissors, I'm cutting around the outer edges of the figure.
Below: The figure is cut from the print.
Below: The catalog photo is lifted off the cut-out figure.
Below: The figure cut from the print is placed onto background paper.
Altho this figure differs from the one shown near the top of this post, the method I used was the same. It's handy to keep in mind whenever you want to do something new and exciting with your stencil prints. Just imagine a series of these cut-outs, cut from in a variety of colors made with a variety of stencils and masks!
Abstract Composition Backbones Masks 1, 2, 3 and 4 look like this, when still enclosed in their original 6" x 6" borders--
