New set of stencils - Kunst Masken

Ever since I learned about Bauhaus from the design history course that I took when I was an industrial design major, I've always loved its design style. I have looked though the books containing the works of the Bauhaus instructors, and also visited Museum of Modern Art in New York City for the special exhibitions of various instructors.

As inspired by the masks and ballet costumes designed and created at the Bauhaus schools, I have created a set of art masks - three 9x12s and three 4x4s.
I have used them for creating my own art postcards (5.5 inches x 8.5 inches) - they were formerly advertising postcards that came into the mailbox almost daily.

These above masks are easily customized with paint markers. I've used part of the overall pattern to create "strips" on the postcards as shown below.
I have used various techniques for creating different effects with the same stencils (9x12). The left side of the photo below were stenciled directly on the white mixed media paper, and the right side were done on the painted backgrounds.

You can purchase these stencils from StencilGirl Products' website here.
