Hello StencilGirl Lovers!
The beaded bracelets I made gave me all sorts of ideas
for more of the interchangeable decorative covers.
There are a couple different kinds of techniques here....
First I started with some silk fusion papers I made in a class many years ago.
You can find tutorials online of how to make it yourself.
It is silk fibers layered crosswise on a screen
with textile medium adhering it together.
(The texture reminds me of mulberry paper)
I used Pebeo Setacolor Fabric Paint with a sponge or dauber...
but any fabric paint or thinned down acrylic paints would work.
Artist Designer - Andrew Borloz
I played with the design using acrylic markers.
Posca Pens and Molotow Pens are great for this kind of thing.
Very opaque and good coverage.
I adhered the same size velcro strip to the back of the design
and went on to the next one.
Another technique is embroidery.
This one is simply french knots on a cotton fabric base.
by Andrew Borloz.
Here I used a wool background piece and used Stazon Ink
with a section of Seth Apter's texture
from the Story Time Stencil L183.
I stitched Bullion Knots down the center with varigated thread.
This is more Silk Fusion Paper.
I used 2 different sections of Seth's
This is more of Seth's texture from
with a button in the center.
And more Silk Fusion Paper with Andrew Borloz's
This paper had bits of glitter and metallic thread woven into it.
I used the Glossy Accents from Ranger on the circles.
It gives it a different texture than the background.
Aren't they so cool?
I am addicted to making them!
Let me show you 2 I have yet to finish....
I started out with Layered Salad Stencil S111
by Terri Stegmiller.
I used masking tape to block the portions of the stencil
I did NOT want to use.
I daubed fabric paint through the designs
and just started playing with them.
A little of this... A little of that....
When I am happy with the design I turn the edges under
and fit it to the size I want, either by gluing or sewing.
I cut a piece of velcro and glue it to the back with E6000 glue.
It can't be any easier.
