Triangles to Hexagons

This new stencil actually surprised me as I started working with it.
I discovered so many different ways to use it.
Let's look at one example!

First of all you need to gather your materials and tools.
Stencil, paper (not shown here) ~ choose any paper you'd like to draw on.
Pencil, ink pen, blending stump.

Here, I chose to use a 2" x 2" Bijou tile as my drawing surface.
I used the smallest Double Triangle on the stencil. 
Positioned the centering circle in the middle of the tile
and then with my pencil, drew the string.

Then taking my pen, I started drawing my pattern.
I LOVE the tangle Flux.

Almost done!

I wanted the shapes to pop a bit more so I went in and shaded.
The time it took me to draw this was about an hour.
My time is divided in so many ways ~ family, business . . .
I'm not really going to tell you all of the ways it is divided.
Although designing and then making a finished art piece is part of my business,
it is also an extremely vital part of reducing my life stresses ~
we all have them good and bad. It is ME time!

There it is in my studio for me to enjoy.

Here are some other ideas for using this stencil.
