Looking Up Through Trees Small Stencil by Cecilia Swatton
"Did you ever stand in a park or forest and look up through trees? Did you have a "John Muir moment," when the glory of creation lifted you with joy?" asks Cecilia Swatton. “I designed this 6" x 6" stencil Looking Up Through Trees from a drawing I did in celebration of this view.” You can use the entire design, or just a part of it, in your mixed-media art. You can also pair it with the 9" x 12" Looking Up Through Trees stencil.

Cecilia says, "One way to look at this image is to see a metaphor for humanity as it's meant to be: Everyone rising from his or her roots, growing upward to stretch out branches that intertwine, each of us unique -- yet all of us connected."
New Patterns from Andrew Borloz
Arrows within Rounds, S797
Andrew writes: "I love arrows and I love rounds/circles. So I figured why not combine them into a stencil. I also like to make them look busy so I made them look like they're going in different directions: up and down or left and right depending on how you place them. I inserted the dots between them for visual balance and to slow down the visual traffic."
Pseudo Letters, S798
Andrew mimicked letters without making them too obvious in this stencil design.
Andrew writes, "As I was drawing various shapes, I inserted cross lines to make them look like letterforms. Some of the shapes look like letters such as Q, Y, U, T, A, E to name a few. They were put together to form a collage that made them look less than letterforms, and still retain some of their essences.
Retro Grid, S799
Andrew saw Japanese designs that incorporated dashes in the patterns, and also a couple of retro patterns that used orbit circles. He combined them and came up with this new pattern stencil. "It looks retro to me," he writes. "The grid is not obvious, but it is subtly hinted by the placement of the dashed lines and oval circles."
Triangles & Diamonds Pattern, S790
This stencil is almost like an optical illusion where it is not easy to see the difference between the triangles and diamonds. That's what Andrew likes about it.
Andrew says, "At first, it may look like only one pattern. But there are actually two different patterns, and there's an "invisible" line dividing them. The triangular part has some of the triangles looking like funnels, and the diamonds seem to mimic the chain link fence."
