Painted Floors. Part 2.

A reader recently asked me about where to get the stencils for this look:

The answer: I have no idea.

I too wanted to use this look in a client’s kitchen, and so I made them myself using Photoshop.

First I pulled the two separate shapes out of the photo above and then distorted, stretched, and re-drew them in order to get them flat and 2 dimensional. Then I resized them to work with the scale of the kitchen. Printed them out on a large format printer at Kinkos, and then transferred them onto YUPO and cut out the shapes with an Xacto blade (quite a few actually) . YUPO is a fantastic plastic like paper that I like to make paintings on, and is also fabulous for using as a stencil. I only painted one and then my super fabulous and daring client painted the rest herself!  Here are some quick pics -more when the rest of the kitchen is in – which will  feature a beautiful orange Blue Star Range by the way…

Actually I wish that I had a couple of parallel lives running. One of me would know how to sew. One of me would definitely … . Anyway here are some of my favorite patterns from Spoonflower, where you can have fabric created from your designs.  So many tools available to customize and create. Blurb, Lulu, Shapeways… What are your favorite tools like this? I really want to know.
