Sacred Geometry 2 Blog Hop and Giveaway
I love me a good stencil and these are four great stencils.
I had fun playing with the stencils in lots of different ways. I could break this post down into three blog posts, but I'll share it all here. I hope you are ready!
I wanted to see if I could create a repeat pattern so I pulled out the notebook and traced:
I really liked the way the stencil design looked without all of the spaces traced.
I filled in the shapes with zentangly doodles.
This was so relaxing.
Next, I had to see if I could make a stamp from on the images.
I have been a little obsessed with stamp making lately.
The image was transferred on to the rubber by patting an ink pad over the stencil:
I didn't want to waste the corner so I added another part of the stencil there.
No one said the stamp had to be exactly like the stencil!
I like the repeat on this stamp!
I think it would be a fun background on fabric or paper.
And last but not least, I had to give them a try on fabric. I soaked some cotton PFD fabric (prepared for dyeing) in soda ash and allowed it to air dry before dabbing Color Magnet through the stencils.
Once the Color Magnet dried, I placed each piece in a zip lock bag and added diluted procion DX fabric dyes. I neglected to photograph the final fabrics but I believe you can see the designs in the wallhanging created with them.
I had a lot of fun with these new stencils!
