My mind will not turn off since. It was one of those exhibitions where one walks away with motivation and stimulation to create. So today I researched Moroccan designs and found one that I liked and thought would be good to start. In Photoshop I uploaded the tile design and duplicated it to create ......
After most of the morning I had three stencils for my journal background
|stencil (cut) #1|
|stencil (cut) #2|
|stencil (cut) #3|
After using the three stencils I had the following background in my journal. I really liked it and was pretty satisfied. Then I tried little blue punch-outs in the center of each main design and WOW!
Here is the final background.....
The blue makes it pop even more. Now the next issue is to somehow incorporate my design into my barn series. Yes, Ingrid, this is coming to you next month.
