I’m SO happy as we shipped the crate out to the SALI show today and that stress and mess is DONE! Somehow, even though we “cut back” there was still a big pile of stuff that had to go ON TOP of the crate as it wouldn’t fit inside. Here are few more new ‘babies” that went off in the crate for display next week.
I am loving these fresh graphic looks that are definitely a current trend. It’s nice to be able to adapt some old and new stencil designs so easily to this just by changing the colors and painting techniques used. The one on the left uses our Japanese Flower Garden with String of Pearls as stems. The other ones all combine our Modello Silhouette patterns with stencils for “pattern in pattern” look. For the one above we used 4′ tall flowers, painted them in with latex paint and filled them with delicated little allover designs like our Lacy Leaves, Lovely Lace and more.
Above left, we done more of that with some new Dragonfly Modellos. These will all be part of our new “Silhouette and Stencils” series. Above right uses a Transitional Border to create the valance and that was filled the Allover Brocade over a background of a repeated Ornamental Cartouche. We have been having some kind of stenciling fun, let me tell you!
