Then I decided to use the photo to make a stencil. Here is my computer printout and the sheet of Mylar I am using for the stencil.
This Mylar is very thin so I am a little worried about paint getting underneath it, but I think I am going to use Shiva oil sticks (with a stencil brush) on it so that shouldn't be a problem.
Here is my pencil sketch on Mylar. I improvised a little to make it about 7" x 10".
I cut little "X"s with an Xacto knife, then cut the shapes out with curved manicure scissors (the only curved scissors I had in the house).
I liked the pattern so much, I made another one with smaller shapes.
