Love Snow Flurries Stencils by Rebecca Baer


I love to paint snow scenes.  The Snow Flurries Stencil by Rebecca Baer really captures the delicacy of the snowflake. 


The 16x20 painting below I had already painted by background and went over the 5.75x5.75 Snow Flurries stencil with white paint pretty heavily.

 "Church in Winter" by Karen Conner

The Snowman below I used the Snow Flurries stencil (size 5.75x5.75) in the background using glazing medium with white paint so you can't see it until the bottom.

 I wanted the bottom design to be darker so I used the glazing medium with the Ultramarine blue paint to stencil the Snow Flurries stencil.  I blended the darker blue into the background.



 This is my last post on Rebecca Baer's design team.  I have so enjoyed using her intricate stencils and especially the brushes!!  I hope you've been inspired to shop with her and find your own stencils to use in your designs!

Thanks so much Rebecca for great DT year!!
