So some weeks ago I announced my new StencilGirl Stencils...guess what? They are on sale!
Today I'm sharing my Filigree Sprigs stencil tutorial with you. It's a small fun book to make with a great theme. Enjoy!
I’m always looking for seedling and sprig shapes to include in my paintings and journal. 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 you have a great resource to use to explore and grow!
Filigree Sprigs Sea Book
Step 1. Start out with a decorative paper or make your own.
I used Masa Paper, crumpled up and painted.
Step 2. Stencil the decorative paper with Filigree Sprigs stencil.
Step 4. After folding the pages in half, select a couple of sheets of vellum. Cut to size and fold in half.
Step 6. Stack the pages one on top of the other while open. Poke 3 holes equal distant from each other at the fold through all the pages.
Step 7. Thread a binding needle with thread. Use the illustration for your guide for sewing. Embellish with beads or buttons.
