Ready for those stencils????
Now here is Desiree to show you how she used the stencils!!!

Hi everyone, my name is Desiree Habicht and I am a multi-media and mixed media artist. I love to work in many different mediums and fiber is one of my favorites! I have been playing on fabric with my stencils to explore different ways to incorporate them into my art quilts.

 have been playing with different paints and fabrics so I can see how the stencils work under different conditions.

I have been thrilled with my results. I not only have made some small art quilts that I am mounting on canvas but I have incorporated various elements in my stencil to other art quilts and surfaces.

One of the things I like the best with my stencil, is that there are a variety of images so I can pull different looks into specific areas of my piece. I have been working on a large art quilt that I still haven't revealed to the public so you are getting a sneak peak on how I am incorporating different elements of my stencil onto the queens clothing and trims.


I can't wait to release my finished piece. I am also exploring the idea of just using the outlines part of the stencil as a pattern for overall quilting. You can see here how I was practicing my free motion quilting by using the stencil to draw a light pattern which i can follow with my stitching.

I have done it in a contrasting thread so you can see my stitching lines. 

I love the versatility of stencils! I had an opportunity to try the stencils with ceramic glazes on some plates.

I used the different stencils to apply glazes to the plate surfaces and then had them fired. I am very happy with the results I am getting on all these different surfaces.  I am still in the process of moving onto my sketchbooks! I hope you will check back and see what other great projects I have created using these wonderful stencils. You can see more of my work on my BLOG and WEBSITE. Happy Creating!! 

You can find all of Desiree's new stencils on our website TODAY!!!
