Yesterday Steve and I took some time off from knockout to play with stencils. The mission was create some type using a variety of fine materials. We ended up using coffee grounds, pencil shavings, colored sprinkles, tumeric, ground up chives, and a variety of other herbs and spices.
Once the stencils were cut, we sprayed some mounting adhesive through them onto illustration paper and then sprinkled the ingredients across the adhesive. Simple but effective technique.
We were quite pleased with the results. Check out all the pics in our flickr set.
We played with negative space too.
I’m a big fan of the curlies in Steve’s pencil shavings stencil.
