Description
 
Laurie Mika designed the Porto Tile stencil as part of her Blue Tiles of Portugal collection. The collection also includes Cascais Tile, Douro Valley Tile, Lisbon Tile, Azulejo Museum 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.
"
It was so much fun visiting the town of Porto on the Douro River. Porto has two sister cities on each side of the river connected by many bridges. On one side of the river, Port houses line the boardwalk. Many of these Port houses have been producing Port for hundreds of years and the buildings that house these tasting rooms are beautiful and many are adorned with tiles as well."

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.
