I see Stencils Everywhere
I have always loved pattern; my doodles turn into patterns, I collect patterned wrapping paper and napkins, I tear out pictures of pattern from magazines. My abstract paintings often involve pattern and my drawings and journal pages include pattern without fail.
And that was before I made my first stencil.
After I started cutting my own stencils, it got worse. Suddenly every pattern started to hold additional meaning as I tried to envision it as a stencil.
I got perhaps a wee bit carried away and before you can say Laser Cut Stencils, I was that crazy person photographing a friend's blouse or hotel carpet. Rusted stuff. Cracks in the sidewalk. Cactus. More cactus. Random foliage. And so it goes. Here are just a few images I have collected lately.
What type of things do you photograph? Any stencil worthy imagery? Not that I am going to run out of ideas any time soon, but I love to hear what you all think. Start your wish list by leaving me a comment below.
