I love All Over Repeat Stencil Patterns and have asked some very talented decorative artists to share some of their favorite projects with us here on Stencil Talk. I’d like to thank everyone in advance for your submissions. Keep them coming!
Today I would like to feature an incredible bath done by Rachel Morris of the Stencil Library. We have seen some of Rachel’s cousin Helen Morris‘s work here, but this is the first time we are featuring Rachel’s wonderfully creative work. The following text is in Rachel’s own words:
I would like to submit my bathroom as my favourite stencilling project. I have sent 1 full room shot and 4 detail shots all featuring stencilling. This was a real labour of love. Just about every surface in the room, including furniture and some accessories needed to be painted and stencilled so it was a big project. Because I wanted to use lots of different colours and patterns in the room, I wasn’t quite sure whether it was all going to work together until it was nearly finished. So I don’t mind saying that a lot of blood, sweat and tears went into this one. But it all turned out better than I ever imagined so I am totally in love with it. Of course, it has really come into its own this winter – nothing better than lounging in a hot bath on a cold, dark winter’s night.
My favourite effect is the stencilling done with gloss acrylic varnish on a matte surface for a subtle, textured look.
