StencilClub Voices are creating art with the Ceramic Tiles Collection!

The hand-drawn repeating patterns and fleur-di-lis within the Ceramic Tiles Collection inspired Marge Weaver, Natalie Lewis, Beth Broadway, and I, to break out our paints, pens, printing plates and get busy!

Natalie Lewis's Black and Tan Canvas

Natalie writes, "My project was done on a 11x14 canvas, painted with black gesso. I made various sizes and alternated between black and white gesso on brown craft paper, then I went over each stenciled design with a black micron pen and a white signo pen, adding detail in contrasting colors. Using all 3 sizes of the tile design, I created a collage overlapping each tile. I added 3 dimensional fleur-de-lis pieces to repeat the tile theme.

Beth Broadway's Rusty Textured Painting

Beth writes, "As soon as I opened the July StencilClub by Gwen Lafleur, they reminded me of the old tin ceiling tiles."

Beth used a rust effect paste on the 6x6 stencil as the focal point and the 9x12 and mini stencil for the border.

Margie Weaver's M is for Mermaid

Margie writes, "I’ve had this wooden M in my stash for years. I sponge painted the background in seascape colors, then used the large July stencil and copper acrylic pant to transfer the stencil pattern as a 2nd layer. The mermaid was made using the Mermaidia Stencil and the gelliplate, imprinting on heavy card stock. It was then fussy-cut out and I used foam to mount it, cattywompus, to the bottom right of the M." {We love how the mermaid looks cut out of metal!}

Margie also made a simple greeting card using the medium stencil - the medallion. Again, she imprinted with the gelliplate then fussy-cut out the central element. She used the small stencil to add the arcs at the top and bottom of the medallion once it was adhered with glue dots. Finally, the wording was stamped in the bottom right corner. 

Carol Baxter's Card and Card Box

I love curating StencilClub Voices! Each one of our wonderful members brings so much thought and talent to their projects.  

I used Gwen's lovely Ceramic Tiles large and small stencils to paint and doodle on the sides of a little 6.5x8.5x9.5 inch box while I waited for a StencilClub video to upload.

I had envelopes and cards scattered about my office by now they are somewhat tidy! Of course, I had to make a card too! It looked too empty so I scribbled the words to a song that was playing in the white space.

I think these stencils will easily adorn gift bags and cards because it's only a matter of changing colors to match the season. I especially      like the large leafy pattern in the large stencil.

Thanks to our talented StencilClub Voices for the inspiration and ideas!
