Stencils are fantastic tools for layering, creating backgrounds, filling spaces, adding textures, blending colours. Use in all kinds of visual arts projects including art journals, mixed media, cardmaking, scrapbooking, ATCs, tags, papercrafts, home decor, models and frames.
Use stencils with a wide variety of art supplies - paints, pastels, markers, pencils, gesso, texture paste, mediums, glitter gels, modelling pastes, and other favourite arty treasures.
Tim Holtz Layering Stencils are made of a creamy coloured, thin durable, semi-translucent plastic. Easy to clean by wiping off with a wet cloth or using soap and water for paints, mediums and pastes (before it dries).
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!
