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.
Oh - wonderful! Thanks for the introduction. How did you do your stencils - are they painted or Photoshopped? A friend persuaded me to go to the Isabella Blow exhibition at Somerset House recently (see the dezeen.com slide show) but I think I prefer your artist!
impressive - I love it....and likewise - how did you do the stencils...it looks like you actually cut out a stencil and then painted...now you have my mind going too!
Fabulous. And yeah, how DID you cut those stencils??
Ha! I thought someone would ask about the stencils. I printed the design on Tyvek and then hand cut three stencils. I just did a blue one and it turned out amazingly well, too. Happy holiday!
Magic John, you are really clever with your scissors.
Don't cover it up to much. Pic a tiny barn.
These are amazing. And so is that fact that not only were you were inspired by something but you took action by creating these. Impressive.
Very impressive stencils john.
Wow! You certainly took the Isabelle de Borshgrave exhibit and ran with it. Those stencils are fantastic, John. Lovely work.
