Matrix Stencil Quad

Item Description

This item is a complete set of my newest release from StencilGirl Products. The Matrix collection includes four stencils: Synapse and Grate Full at 9" x 12", Gridlock at 6" x 6" and Etched at 4" x 4". The designs were inspired by the many definitions of a matrix.

A matrix is typically a group of numbers that are displayed in a fixed number of rows and columns. The symbols and marks in all of the stencils in this collection are all laid out that way as well. More broadly, a matrix is an environment in which something develops. For sure that is exactly what happens when you take a stencil and get to creating. And finally, a matrix is a term often used in printmaking to represent the surface from which an image is taken. Again, it sounds like you can apply this to stencils too.

Synapse and Grate Full, the two 9 x 12 inch stencils, are large enough so that when used in full, you can create an abstract pattern that can become the focal point of your work. Individual segments can also be used on their own for smaller pieces. Individual rows or columns can become borders. The size of even a single symbol is large enough to become a container or frame for a word, making them well suited for journaling. 

The design of Gridlock, the medium stencil at 6 x 6 inches, enables you to accomplish all the ideas referenced above - but on a smaller scale. It also calls out to be used as a non-traditional swatching stencil, wth different shades of mediums in each box and just enough room in between for a small, handwritten label. And how cool would it be to use the entire stencil and write a letter in each square, spelling out a phrase or personal message.

The small scale of Etched, 4 x 4 inches, enables you to use these abstract symbols in smaller work such as ATCs and pocket journals. For larger surfaces, you can use the stencil over and over again, side by side, to fill the space. Turning the stencil 90 degrees for each reuse guarantees a more varied and random result

Made using a 7 mil mylar, heat resistant film, this stencil can be used over and over again. While you can use the stencil as a whole, the many sections of the stencils lend themselves to layering.
