Stencil Duo Technique

Stencil Duo Technique

Julie Heyer

Combine the beauty of two stencils with this cool layering technique that doesn't involve masks!


I absolutely LOVE the Garden Shed Interlocking Words stencil. It is a brilliant design feat and my hat goes off to Jacqueline. (How does she do it?) Visit Kay's post HERE to learn how the interlocking words stencil works. Trace the Sunflowers stencil image layers onto white paper with the fine tip of a dual brush tip orange marker.




Apply Neon Yellow, Topaz, and Tangerine inks one layer at a time with an ink applicator.


Add a touch of Earth ink (applied with fingertip wrapped with a paper towel) around the center of the sunflower to add depth and highlights.


Lay the Garden Shed Words stencil over the sunflower and apply color around the image with an ink applicator. Tip: Apply inks into tight spots with the edges of the applicator.

Continue to apply alternating colors of Leaf, Lagoon, and Topaz inks, onto the words to create the background.
