“What to do with that Paint Covered Stencil,” I ended up with an amazing paper towel that had been used for blotting paint from the used stencil onto printmaking paper.
The paper towel became the principal element in a collage.
Used paper towel
Paint (I used diluted fabric paint that I had from the “Crazed for Fabric” project)
Scissors or Exacto knife
Mod Podge or similar product
Collage surface (I used a cradled panel)
Step One: Select an area of the paper towel you want to use and use Mod Podge (or a similar product) to adhere the paper towel to the panel.
Step Three (Optional): Cut areas of the design out of the stenciled tissue paper for additional interest.
Step Four: My mistake! I decided that I wanted the tissue paper gold rather than white (which would disappear when glued down…duh)! I painted the tissue paper after I’d had cut it – not an easy process. If you want the tissue paper a different color, buy it that way or paint it before cutting it out!!
