Playing with stencils – Dripping Blood effect and Woodgrain!

Playing with stencils – Dripping Blood effect and Woodgrain!

Good morning all,

As mentioned yesterday, I said i would share my stencil experiments today 🙂

First is wood grain, this is quite a big stencil, I think the effect was OK (although it looks more like a zebra!) but its not quite as i wanted!

Added to that the stencil is very flimsy feeling, due to so many large cut out areas. So unfortunately although I will keep this one, the design will go on the ‘bin it’ pile and these won’t be created to sell.

The next stencil is meant to look like dripping blood and is for the edges of projects.
I played with a few different mediums to see how it looked and liked them all. They were just created on scrap card and very quickly to see how the stencil worked. It was great, so I’m excited to use this in the future as I know it will get even better results with the right base medium and a bit more care.

I also noticed that it could double as great seaweed and make a fab underwater scene. (in fact i prefer it as seaweed hehe)

Pop back tomorrow to see how i created a cool underwater scene with this same stencil!
