I am trying out a new program called GIMP to see if I can create some custom stencils, with the hope I can come up with a 2,3 or 4 layer stencil to use in some art.
I have these great family photos from 1798-1930 that I want to use, because I find the faces interesting. I think some of the stencils could be used in the Citra Solv art, in addition to many other things burning a hole in my brain trying to get out.
Here are a couple I am working on at the moment. The first one is my dad taken from a video of him on the show To Tell the Truth.
It is a single layer and I cut it and used it on a piece of scrap paper to see how it looks.
The next one is of his father, dating back to 1926. I am trying to get 3 layers out of it and hope to cut it out tomorrow, when I am not so tired.
I did a simple, single layer cut the other day for the art demo using a masking sheet on my Silhouette Cameo and those came out really well and people went nuts for them.
