I got the first batch of new samples pretty much done this morning and decided to add a few more into the mix. As I was designing one of the new ones I thought it would be a GREAT opportunity to throw some more Ultimate Stencil tips your way.
I try and get multiple class uses out of each sample because there is so much time involved. I needed a new "bright threads" sample for my Open Thread Bar class and decided to do a bunch of random circles and fill each one with a feather design using an unnerving bright thread. Of course I had a blast using the Ultimate Stencils for this...it made it SO much easier! So now I can use this sample for my Heirloom Feathers class as well as my upcoming Ultimate Stencil class. Time well spent!
In my Heirloom Feathers handbook I have lots of pages showing how you can easily divide basic shapes to fill with feathers. A circle is especially hard because it's difficult to find the perfect center and then get perfect angles. These are pictures out of the handbook. Now easily duplicate these designs in my class sample.
Now it's time to audition all the crazy bright threads that will be used. These are Superior Threads' trilobals and Magnifico. Amazing to work with!
I will have the finished class sample with all the circles/feathers in a blog coming up soon!
Hugs, Cindy :)
