This year at CHA I noticed the trend of using stencils in paper crafting, home decor, and mixed media is still going strong. I picked up some samples to play with and got inspired! I am personally drawn to the geometrics, tribals, and city scapes. I even made a little video!
I misspoke about a few of those designs! WHOOPS! But here is a closer look a the stencil designs along with the correct designer’s name. (Sorry, Ronda- I love your designs!!)
First up are from Claudine Hellmuth (Ranger):
Ronda Palazzari (The Crafter’s Workshop):I really see the trend of geometrics, cityscapes, tribals (including mandalas) and florals/birds still abound. What trends do you see? Which do you like best?
If you’d like to see a fun way to use your stencils as a rubbing plate, make sure you check out the video I made here. While I was playing, I came up with a fresh stencil technique using Mod Podge Gloss as a resist. Check it out!
