New Stencils! Organic Zen plus Baking and Cooking

StencilGirl is serving up new stencils by June Pfaff Daley and Jamie Fingal.

Jamie loves to create a sense of beauty and is intrigued by nature. Enjoy the garden path, where the leaves and long flowing lines of the lattice shelter the new seedlings in her Leaf Zen Landscape Stencil.

Jamie has created an enlargement of the original 6" x 6" version of Zen Landscape with flowing lines, elongated leaves, and the winding path leading you to where ever you want to go in the secret garden of life.

Pictured below are all 5 stencils in Jamie's Organic Zen Collection:

Jamie Fingal is a quilter. Her Organic Zen Stitched Stencil is all about stitches, lines, patterns and whimsical quilting motifs. This stencil can be used in portions to create texture or as a whole design. Quilt with paint!

The Organic Zen Celebrate Stencil features some of Jamie‘s favorite doodles to make backgrounds to jazz up an object, and to celebrate joy. Spirals, triangles, squares and circles light up our world in fun and whimsy.

One of Jamie Fingal's signature motifs in her artwork is a cup and saucer. The Zen of Cups and Saucers Stencil, whether it be filled coffee, chocolate, or tea, will delight all connoisseurs. Cheers to the Zen of a delicious cup of soothing goodness!

The Organic Zen Squares Stencil features a metric chance of squares intertwined with one another. Jamie has a quarter and a square is the basis of many quilting blocks. Squares add texture to backgrounds and objects.

Organic Zen Circles features Jamie’s organic vision of water, puddles, skipping rocks, ocean and watching lovely rain drops fall into the water. It also makes for a whimsical sky.

Just look at this amazing quilt Jamie made with her new stencils! She's written a post on her website too!
