Metropolis ... layering stencil by Tim Holtz (THS156).
This design is is inspired by a city map, an overview of roads twisting, turning and winding all over the place!
Create layers of colour and texture using art stencils in fun versatile designs. Use this Tim Holtz stencil with a wide variety of art supplies including paints, pastels, markers, pencils, gesso, texture paste, mediums, modelling paste, pens, inks and more.
Tim Holtz Layering Stencils are made of a semi-translucent creamy coloured fine plastic. Use for creating patterns, details, textures, dimension and interest in backgrounds and areas of an image.
A few ideas : simply use a sponge or stencil brush to apply your paint or ink through the stencil's design onto the area required. Great for creating multiple layers in art. For best results, make sure each layer is dry before adding more paint or ink over the top unless you want a blended or marbled effect. Use to create texture and interest on a background or within other shapes.
You can also trace in and around the design with a pencil or pen, or place a sheet of paper over the stencil and rub over with a crayon or pencil.
Let your heart and imagination guide your art as you enjoy the creative process!
Designed by Tim Holtz and made by Stampers Anonymous. The simple tag shape makes it easy to organise and store the layering stencils in one place. It also is a reminder that Tim creates all his samples and ideas as a tag :)
