Fragments and Reticula ~ Stencils!!!!!

I absolutely love drawing patterns in grids! Which is exactly
what Fragments and Reticula are!
AND . . .
I love tools and practicing!

So, with that in mind, I have designed a LOT of stencils and in different sizes,
to help me draw my artwork.

First, I have made a stencils to "Chart" my fragments.

Fragment Chart Stencil to fit my 5.5" Square Hand-Book (Journal)

This stencil is a great way to use my Fragment Chart Stencil as an jumping
off point to create my design

This one is for a smaller journal ~ the stencil is 3" x 5"
I use this one in my journals that can take a 5" x 8" stencil

I also have several 3.5" Square Stencils, which fit
perfectly on a Zentangle Tile.

This is JUST the beginning for these types of stencils!
Keep coming back ~ I'll be posting again soon!

Stencil can be purchased at our ETSY Store!

Watch OUT . . . . .

I have a new concept for all of you who love to make your home decor!

Design Your Own Layered Elements

For years, I have been designing patterns that took all of the guessing and experimentation
out of the process of making something that was uniquely yours!

I realize that I am still providing elements, but what you do
with them is now entirely up to you!
The colors you use, the layers you use, the embellishments you use,the layout you use.

Do I offer layout ideas? Yes, but only a few such as: Coasters, Ornaments, Penny Rugs, Table Runners, Twirlies, and these are only to get you started.

I do not suggest color, but I do give you some techniques to help you
figure out color variations.
You also receive an Embroidery and Color Idea page to help you
with designing your layered element.

Most of the Design Your Own Layered Elements Collections will
be compatible with each other, although there will be some elements in a
collection that don’t quite fit in another collection.
But, it’s still fun to have all of them!

I have many more Design Your Own Layered Elements Collections, coming!!!!
