Description
 
Laurie Mika designed the Azulejo Museum Tile stencil as part of her Blue Tiles of Portugal collection. The collection also includes Cascais Tile, Douro Valley Tile, Lisbon Tile, Porto Tile, and Sintra Tile.

Laurie says: "Anyone who has ever visited Portugal can immediately identify with the beautiful blue tiles that adorn both the facades and the interiors of buildings throughout this amazing country. I recently traveled to Portugal and these stencils are inspired by that trip and are named for the many cities and places I visited. Being a mixed media mosaic artist, tiles have always been an important part of my creative journey so it is not surprising that I was drawn to all of the incredible tile motifs.
"Visiting this incredible tile museum in Lisbon was a highlight of our time there. Azulejo refers to the color blue (azul) which is the predominant color of most of the tiles in Portugal. These blue tiles were inspired by both Ming dynasty porcelain design and Dutch Delftware. Every surface is adorned with beautiful tiles, many of them dating back centuries. Some of the tiles were created as large panels that are narrative in nature while many others are abstract patterns that are combined to create symmetric designs. My Azulejo Museum Tile stencil was inspired by the abstract patterning of a wall tile that was in this fantastic museum."

There are so many possibilities and ways to use these tile stencils, from background collage imagery to creating paper quilts to embossing designs on polymer clay. Each tile was hand drawn so there are tiny differences in the patterning that make them look like unique individual tiles.
