Ornate, Curvy, Natural, Mid Century - StencilGirl has the stencils!

Persian Rugs, Spanish Moss, Line Waves, and Mid Century Modern Banners can only mean designers Kate Thompson, Trish McKinney, and Valerie Sjodin have new stencils!


Ornate and intricate, Kate Thompson's Persian Rug Stencils will have you saying wow, how did they make that a stencil!

Kate writes, "I use most of my stencils primarily with joint compound and then rub inks or paints into them but they work just as well traditionally with paint and inks. I have included samples of art and video showing how I use them. I incorporate them into some of my semi-finished artworks as you will see."

Art Nouveau Rug Stencil, 9"x12", L695
Art Nouveau is one of the more beautiful design categories in Kate's opinion. The flowing and intercepting lines make beautiful art. As with the other designs, you can use pieces of the design by itself or use the whole design.

Morocco Rug Stencil, 9"x12, L697

Kate travels and teaches in Morocco and this beautiful background design came to mind. It also has the same feeling as a Persian rug. You can use one of the elements alone or use the entire design.

Floral Waterfall Stencil, 9"x12", L696

"I love the intricacy and delicate work," Kate writes. "So much of my own art contains it. Persian rugs have always been one of my most favorite types of designs. I use to design prints for a living and always loved when there was a Persian, exotic print needed. This particular stencil can be used in many ways. You can use the repeated pattern at the top to add delicate backgrounds to your artwork. The border could be used separately as well for border prints or use the entire design which creates a beautiful piece of work all by itself."


Natural and random, Trish McKinney's Spanish Moss Masks and Line Wave Masks will make you ooh and ahh!

They are available in a multitude of sizes for your art-making pleasure.

Use Trish's Spanish Moss Masks when you wish to achieve a natural, wild, perhaps even flamboyant element in your paintings.

Use Trish’s Line Waves Masks to add unexpected elements to your fine artwork. The bunched lines create a focal while the entire mask creates a marvelous background or a web that adds cohesion.
