Stencil Week: Oldies But Goodies: Dash Circle Dash
September 17, 2014
Today I want to talk about "Dash Circle Dash."
When I designed this stencil I called it "Texture." It was later renamed by the good folks at TCW. But texture explains exactly my intentions with it. I wanted to be able to quickly create lots of overall visual texture.
I made this scrapbook page back in 2013...
...which is ugly and in no way shows off the awesomeness of "Dash Circle Dash." Sigh. But that was then and this is now!
As you might guess from my earlier confession about the name, what I really like to use the "Dash Circle Dash" stencil for is creating visual texture! From my Gelli Printed Journal:
And here's a long piece of fabric that I layered and layered...
...and then turned into this fabulous purse:
I put in a dark lining because I'm prone to open pens and messes in my purse that mark up a light colored lining.
I didn't have enough of the hand painted fabric for the whole bag, so I added some colorful batik pieces that I felt went with the feeling of the painted fabric.
I made my purse based on a free pattern I found here.
Today I am giving away BOTH a 6x6 "Dash Circle Dash" stencil AND a 6x6 "Stripes" stencil. The "Stripes" stencil is also great for creating visual texture. Here's what it looks like:
Here's a piece I made with it back in 2012:
More recently you'll find it all over my Gelli Printed art.
It's perfect for adding a couple lines where you need them!
