Grid

This is the actual stencil on one reusable  sheet of 8.5" x 11" plastic.

This design creates a  seamless repeat both horizontally and vertically. The gently curved lines flow in and out of one another to form a  pleasing design, and the bottom two rows can be masked off to form a  square.

Stencils: grid design with passion flower stencil by Sproule Studios

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The sample on the black background was stenciled with the Passion Flower Stencil. I used the primary colors of the Neopaque paint along with the Lumiere Gold for the center of the flower. The grid in the background is stenciled with the metallic gold. A really interesting effect is achieved with the Grid design when you paint one row darker by using more paint, and the next row lighterby using less paint and a lighter hand with the brush. Alternating the dark and light gives you a very beautiful effect.

The example on the right uses the Fuchsia Stencil. When you are trying to achieve a layered effect so that the grid appears in the background, simply stop painting the grid about an inch away from the object in the foreground.
