New Work - Fun with Stencils - Autumn Ginkgo


I just completed this little piece I call "Autumn Ginkgo". I used a stencil from Laura Murray Designs and Stewart Gill paint to make the ginkgo leaves. I had made the background and the pleated border quite some time ago. (The border is a technique I learned from friend Vikki Pignatelli.) So when my good friend Cyndi Souder said she was teaching a stencil class in Houston and would love to borrow any samples I might have, I thought it was a perfect opportunity to use my new stencil and create one for her. Another UFO done.

I love the pleated border. I keep staring at it, wondering how you did it. I think I'll go play around in my studio and see if I can figure it out!

I bought one last piece at the SAQA auction on Monday. Now I have to go back to being frugal!

Lisa - the use of the light blue pieces really leads your eye around the work - great job! This is just the kind of art that would look good on most walls. Don't you love getting a piece done?!

And I cannot thank you enough for making this lovely quilt! It's a wonderful example of what you can do with stencils and fusible applique. I'll be thrilled to show it to my class in Houston. Thanks!
