Helen Shafer Garcia says she is always looking for seedling and sprig shapes to include in her paintings and journal.
Helen says, “I love the upward growth of plants in my garden. I constantly draw and paint succulents and other plants with pencils and paint. I designed these shapes based on seed pods and new growth on succulents. They can also represent ocean plants and seedlings. Now, with the Filigree Sprigs Stencil, you have a great resource to use to explore and grow!”

The Echeverias Stencil design derived from Helen’s
fascination with succulent shapes.
Helen says, “These plants have been the main focus for many of my
paintings in watercolor. Echeverias have rosette shapes with a large range of
colors. Here in Southern California, I have an advantage of living in the best
environment for these plants. Needless to say, I have an abundance of
succulents on my 1half-acre property. The shapes on the stencil are separated
out for you to design your own arrangement. You can add a ceramic pot or go
wild and plant them in the ground!”
This ballet of shapes will have you dancing in no time. The Echeveria Ballet Stencil design was derived from Helen’s fascination with
succulent shapes. Echeverias have rosette shapes with a large range of colors. The
seed pods are abstracted in the stencil for you to use as accents.
