|Master Suite Stencil, S871, 6" x 6"|
One of Ann's favorite aspects of the Master Suite Stencil design is the unexpected, angled passage that splits the traditional plan.
"Rectangular spaces throughout the residence sometimes need a shake-up.," Ann says. "Envision yourself encountering a passage that appears to go in an unintended direction, when followed, it brings you to a vaulted space with the finest finishes and the grandest views. This angled corridor brings a lot of interest to the plan as well as the experience and will also create interest when the stencil is used."

Ann envisions this stencil being used with inks and paints, perhaps even textural pastes to give the appearance of raised lines within a piece of art.
|Orientation Stencil, M331, 4" x 4"|
Every set of architectural drawings references a building geographically as Ann's Orientation Stencil graphically depicts. The elevations are typically labeled north elevation, south elevation, and so forth. Each drawing then contains a graphic that relates the “building north” as depicted on the drawing labels to “true” north. These types of orientation graphics can be as simple as overlapping rotated axis or as complex as the architect desires it to be.
"I like to include an aerial view of the structure atop geographically accurate compass points," Ann says. "The combination of the circular opening and the roof plan creates a unique graphic."
|Foyer Stencil, S872, 6" x 6"|
The Foyer Stencil evolved from one of Ann's residential designs. The double story entry contained a barrel-vaulted passage through to the main living space as well as a turned staircase that, when ascended, provided sweeping views of the property all along the upper-level corridor.
This stencil contains both large and small openings. It can be used for the simple repetitive patterns that symbolize the stairs and railings or the more open geometric shapes that form the arched passage, trimmed paneling and cased openings, or as a complete architectural design.
This stencil is perfect for use with all types of inks and paints, as well as different types of mediums. The larger openings are well suited to doodling or filling with color, images, or even ephemera.
