Travel into the past with architectural stencils by Tina Walker

Go through the gates to a Gaelic angel and discover four new stencils by Tina Walker.

Tina Walker found the inspiration for her Through the Gates Stencil when she visited the medical wing of Eastern State Penitentiary, located in Philadelphia, PA.  It was operational from 1829 to 1971 and is reported to be haunted.  Tina says, “If you are a history (or ghost hunter), it is a glorious place to visit.” 

Iceland is full of small, white, red roof colored churches. They often sit solitary on hills or near the sea, as if they were sentinels for Mother Nature. Tina was struck by their beauty and designed this Icelandic Church Stencil. This stencil makes a marvelous addition to your Bible or art journal tools.


Churches are a favorite destination during Tina’s travels. She says, “The colors, stories, and old memories resonate with my soul.” The statue that inspired Tina to design this Gaelic Angel Stencil is located in St Giles Cathedral, in Old Town Edinburgh, Scotland. 

Scotland is full of early century cathedrals, so during Tina’s travels to the Scottish Borders region, she visited as many cathedrals as she could. Her Cathedral Floor Stencil was inspired by Jedburgh Abbey, a ruined Augustinian Abbey founded in the 12th Century. The cathedral is stunning to see in person and Tina highly recommends adding it to your travel wish list, meanwhile, the stencils in this collection are perfect for bringing a note of reflection or adding an architectural element to your art.
