Hand Cut Paper Stencils

Sometimes it's nice to print something different from my usual flowery and bird patterns. As I don't have an exposure unit to put new designs on my screens, I like to make paper stencils. These are great for creating simple patterns and images which can be printed in small batches to create limited edition designs.

Last week I cut three simple patterns to use as stencils. I'm using them to create some limited edition products, they are a small part of my new collection. You'll have to wait a few days to see what I made them into though!
