Stencil the Grapevine Stencil in natural greens and purples, as well as single colours such as purple, or grey or contemporary black. Or try warm ochres and browns or golds on black.
Above top – the main motif of the Grapevine Stencil with the additional motifs of leaves, grapes and tendrels added to create a falling group. The design can be extended in this way into any desired layout. Stencilled here in Plum Blossom, Indian Purple, Eucalyptus, Woodland and Olive Grove on a mint background.
Above – the main motif of the Grapevine Stencil, stencilled as a repeat motif – repeated first as a horizontal border and then with the second row of motifs being repeated directly underneath the first – known as a square repeat. Stencilled here in Storm and French Lavender Stencil Paint on a lavender background to create a sophisticated monochrome palette.
Above – the main motif of the Grapevine Stencil shown as a repeat motif – this time as a diagonal repeat. This is achieved by first repeating the stencil as a horizontal border and then stencilling the first stencil of the second row half way between the first two motifs of the first row and then repeating this distance for each successive repeat and each successive row. Stencilled here in Arctic Grey on a mid-tone grey background to create a contemporary monochromatic effect.
