Pencil Stencil
Topic: Stencils

I ran across a stencil technique on someone’s blog that I had not used before. So I got out the Wildflowers stencil from My Favorite Things to try it out.

This is the stencil I used - selecting just the two daisy shapes and the tall weeds.


I don't have a photo tutorial to go with this technique - just a verbal description.

I laid the stencil on watercolor paper and used watercolor pencils to scribble color into the blooms, leaves and stems where I wanted them to appear. I moved the stencil around to add more flowers. 

Then I used an aquabrush to blend out the colors and then added more pencil where I wanted additional color, Including a light blue 'sky' behind the flowers. This was also blended with water.

I trimmed the panel to size and then used a pencil to sketch a border and blended this into the background.


I mounted this onto a base card to match the flowers and added a text sticker.

This technique actually makes it look like the illustration is hand-drawn. Very cool!
