While the GPP Street Team Crusade 19 is over, I had one last stencil technique to conquer. I wanted to learn how to do portrait stencils. And who better to stencil than my own Bar Mitzvah Boy?
Cutting the stencil was easy. The challenge was to find a way without Photoshop to reduce a photo to it's black-and-white essence while maintaining just enough detail. After much experimentation, voila!
I need to explore Michelle's new challenge -- paper casting. But the wheels have been turning about portrait stencils. Perhaps an order to Dharma Trading is in order for some fabric paint. How cool would it be to throw a party and let kids stencil their own portraits on T-shirts? Great use for those old day camp shirts. Maybe later this summer. Stay tuned!
