Hello fellow creatives! I created some more of my own pattern collage papers this week but I used the stencils in a different way then what I usually do. This week I took rubbings of the stencils with a regular ol' crayon.
To start off I gathered thin papers like drawing paper, deli paper and marker paper. You could also use tracing paper, coffee filters and even newsprint. Also, grab your favorite Artistcellar stencils! I found this technique works with both the bold and fine patterns.
For a rubbing to be successful you need to keep the paper, which is on top of the stencil, in the same place. (Unless you are going for a blurred movement effect!) It's also good if you can use the long side of the crayon and not the end. My crayon is a chunky black one with no wrapper that I found in my daughters' crayon box. I tend to hold the paper in place with one hand and use the other to rub the crayon onto the paper with medium pressure in one direction.
Some of the rubbings I did were just black crayon on the paper. Simple and has nice contrast. Others I added some Dylusions spray ink. This made the crayon more subtle but still a lovely texture.
Other papers I prepared with a layer of acrylic paint in simplistic patterns. I then placed the paper with the paint side up on top of the stencil and made the rubbing.
This was so easy and I am left with some beautiful papers!
