How to create a well- rounded Stencil Collection-
If you are selecting new stencil designs to add to the workhorses you love, here are some things to think about-
#1- Look at the overall shapes included in a design INSTEAD of what the image might be. Although you might have originally chosen a stencil for the shell shapes, how might those same shapes spark your imagination in some different directions? This is key to creating a wide variety of designs you can print with them!
#2 Start by asking yourself are the shapes open or small and detailed? Are they geometric or organic? Are there interesting parts to use without printing the whole stencil everytime?
See you in the Print Studio! Diane
