Inspired by bold graphics and the natural world are the Abstract and Canopy stencils – both new this year to The School of Making.
With graphic shapes and leaf motifs throughout, Abstract (35.5” x 31) is available as both a Mylar stencil and a downloadable PDF that can be used to create your own stencil. Abstract’s graphic design lends itself well to a variety of appliqué, embroidery, couching, and beading techniques.
Canopy (35.5” x 28”) is comprised of two separate stencils, and the elements of this nature-inspired stencil can be used alone or layered. The stencils have registration marks to help with their alignment if you choose to use both in your design. Choose to paint both stencils in different colors, a combination of layered paint and embroidery, or for a textural 3-D effect, use embroidery techniques on both on stencils. Like Abstract, Canopy is available in Mylar and PDF formats.
