Description
 
Bridget Benton designed Big Tree Cross Section as part of her Woodgrain Collection. The stencils in this collection are all inspired by her nature prints.

Bridget says: "I love these natural textures and the ways that the patterns echo other natural elements like the whorls of fingerprints or ripples on the surface of water. The stencils can lean more industrial with the lumber ends, or more organic with the full tree cross sections.

"I do a lot of collage – whether in acrylic or encaustic - and am always looking for interesting textures to add interest and depth. And I’m a symbolism junkie . . . Woodgrain represents years of growth and the passage of time. Trees and wood provide us with shelter and warmth. As I’ve been playing with these stencils, I began to see them not only as background textures for a forest-themed encaustic piece or fabric for a cabin quilt, but as clock faces and the sands of time in an hourglass! I hope you are similarly inspired.

"Based on a nature print done by directly inking and printing the visible wood grain in an old tree stump, this captures the rough texture of the bark and the variation of the tree rings. This stencil is so full of possibilities. Woodgrain represents years of growth and the passage of time. Trees and wood provide us with shelter and warmth. Use this gorgeous texture to enhance any nature-based project, to call in the essence of home, or celebrate a major milestone. Ideal for creating textured papers for collage, printing fabric, and creating backgrounds for art journals. Use with paint, gelli plate printing, stitching, and encaustic."
The Woodgrain Collection also includes Post Lumber Cross Section, Small Tree Cross Section, and Stacked Lumber Cross Section.
