Experiments with printing and painting_Stage 2 Experimenting with techniques part 2

I had never made stencils before, but once I started I found it hard to stop. I have made a bunch of different stencils that I used on fabric and paper. I used paints as well as paintsticks. I made six stencils:

My favourite stencil is the one of the umbrellas. The shape works really well as a stencil. I think the least successful stencil is the one of the scissors. I also tried using masking tape on paper.
