Layering stencils
« on: November 19, 2020, 01:01:18 PM »
Has any one bought some of the layering stencils that are out there?  I have seen lots of them on u-tube.
I found a small set at Tuesday Mornings.  It was fun.  First one wasn’t quite the correct colors, but I nailed it the second time. When I turned it into cards, I realized how big the flower really was.  Should have usebigger cardstock and made a larger card.

Your sunflower stencils are really nice, Sheila!

I can't think of any layering stencils in my stash ... I have a few shifter stencils, Tim Holtz and I think the other is Altenew.  I'll have to take another look at my stencils.

Unfortunately our Tuesday Morning moved out.  The closest one is about 35-40 minutes away and it's not as nice as the one that was close by.

My layering stencils are from The Greetery, she marks them really easily so there is no problem lining them up, your flowers are so pretty!

Connie, big thanks for offering to make me some die-cuts.  If at some time I find the need I'll be sure to be in touch.  Thanks for being so thoughtful.


Twice I typed the following info for those who may want to know the differences between stencils.  Unfortunately my computer immediately deleted my brief explanation.  I have been using stencils for many years and have acquired 3 notebooks full of stencils. They are more reasonable than many of our tools.

Layering stencils
I saw your post and realized no one had responded yet.   I think what is happening is that layering stencils are designed in the style of the designer's creative interests.  For instance several of Tim Holtz stencils can be used to create a college type project. Or a few stencils can create interest for backgrounds.  Tim has a youtube demonstration explaining the differences with color, paper, design and how he uses them.  He recently added some floral stencils to his line of layering stencils.

Altenew stencils
The floral stencils are broken into smaller pieces of the large flower so different parts can be shaded or accented.  The company provides a colored printed layout of where each small piece should be located. Self-paced classes are available to learn Altenew techniques.

Concord and Ninth
Concord and Ninth has layering stencils called turnabout that helps one develop detailed pattern designs.  One divides the paper into 4 quadrants and then colors the pattern in each quadrant adding a segment after each turnabout.

Greetery
Greetery stencils provide a marking on the stencil so that segments can be correctly connected by matching dots.

Many other artists have created new ways of using stencils.  It does take some time to discover how each stencil is designed to be used.  Have fun learning what works for you!

FYI-I have been watching many sales on-line these last couple weeks.The deals are often better than I have seen online previously...However now many products are totally selling out.  I am afraid it may take a long stretch before products can be replaced.  Next week is the deadline for having packages deliver for Christmas.

I am not much into the layering stencils with patterns but I do like the ones that do the shading for you for flowers and such :)  I still haven't received packages that I ordered for the Black Friday sales but they are on their way :)
