Sacred Geometry 2 Blog Hop and Giveaway

I'm excited to share these newest stencils from Artistcellar with you:  Sacred Geometry 2.
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!

Absolutely LOVE what you have done with the stencil! The take on your zentangle renditions - so original and they rock! The stamp is wonderful! I so would like to try the Color Magnet... we do not see this here, so I will look in Syracuse this summer.
