peacock work (which is FINISHED :-), I ran across a partial overhead projector sheet. The choice was to either throw it away or use it. Guess what I chose to do? Relegating things to the trash is like pulling teeth for me, especially if they might have a future use. I wondered if the sheet would make a good and permanent surface for cutting stencils, so I started somewhat small. After all, it was an experiment, I told myself.
Here's how the process developed.
1. Tools used.
2. I used a painter's tape roll to draw a circle onto the transparency sheet.
3. I then drew a pattern onto the sheet and cut out the stencil shapes with a craft knife. When drawing the pattern, I made sure to leave uncut "bridge" spaces so that the stencil would not fall apart.
4. Since I was low on white fabric paint I mixed textile medium with craft paint in a small roller pan.
Always remember, never fear to experiment.
Sometimes wonderful things happen.
