Blossom stencils have the great advantage of working in a host of colour choices – simple one colour palettes work in most colour combinations, natural blossom tones are beautiful and funky brights and contrasting tones create brilliant contemporary effects.
Above – the three different sections of the Japanese Blossom Stencil are joined together, rotated and repeated to create a flowering blossom tree effect – just one example of a possible layout that can be achieved with the three different motifs. Also shown with butterflies from the Little Butterlfies Stencils 1 and 2. Stencilled in Very Berry and Seville Orange Stencil Paint on a pale apricot background.
Above – here the Japanese Blossom Stencil branch motif is rotated anti-clockwise up to 45 degrees and stencilled with multiple contrasting bright and pastel colours. For this effect use Very Berry, Alba Rose, Orchid, Plum Blossom, Indian Purple, Seville Orange, Paradise Blue (flowers) and Storm (branches) Stencil Paints on a pale grey background.
