To start my Parallel project, I have cut out stencils of objects in thick watercolour paper. They are small, about 7cm height x 5cm width. The reason I needed this size is because I want to use origami paper as background and they are all 15cm x15cm.
I have tried a couple stencils but I think I have to make a decision of either keep patterned objects and plain background, or plain objects and ONE type of pattern. In this trial, I think the ‘cake’ image is just too busy.
For instance, the ‘cake’ image, I would choose this pattern and simply change the colours of the centre subject.
