Crazy for Stencils

 As  promised,  on my group this am
Id share some of Karen Ellis' new stencil designs.
Remember this canvas we did
at The Art House?
on the right side you can see this gorgeous stencil

 I used the smaller size for the
hand painted shirt i did for
the Farmers market this weekend.
I  used  So Soft fabric paint
from Deco Art.
its called "Whimsical designs "
(sorry for the glare )
 This is another stencil  i used
called  Leaf frame ( Balzar Designs)
very soft and delicate
on this shirt.
Just another of the hundreds of stencils Karen sells.

below   " Houses"
another of Karens designs .
I havent had a chance to work with it yet.

hello Lillian,

I am as crazy of these stencils of craftersworkshop as you !!

I use them to ink, to spray, to use with gesso, gelmedium,...

You used them on shirts? Do you use special spray-ink or the fabricinks of Ranger ?

I didn' t pay much attention to the designer of these stencils, but you talk about "Karen" and then I thought " hey, I have that last one too " :)

Maybe we should give the designers as much credit as craftersworkshop... Maybe they should better imprint the name of the designer on the stencils as Tim does on all his stuff !

They deserve our attention too !
greetings from belgium

What a wonderful post, Lillian. Love what you did with the stencils -- I love seeing how people use them and you certainly inspired me... a shirt, huh? hummmm *smile*

I'd like to share this on my blog tomorrow... hope that's okay.
