Nancy Curry designed Floral Carpet for her new Scenic Route Collection. The collection also includes Sojourn and Solitary Tree.

Nancy says: "Our travels have taken us to places on our bucket list that have astounded, but the ones that play out in my memory are the quiet, introspective moments that allow the natural world to show off its beauty, endurance, and stillness. Those interludes of absolute peace and wonder are the moments that get me through the hard days. During the latter part of the pandemic, they became the basis for my series of watercolor landscapes that I call The Floral Carpet series. Transforming my paintings into stencils in this ongoing collection is another way of unleashing my imagination to the world.
"I love stencils that can be used in different ways. Although they are seemingly complete compositions, they can be used in their entirety, or they break down into parts as shown in the samples. They can be the main event in your pieces or play an supporting role. My samples are very saturated or high contrast, but they would be beautifully serene parts done in pastel-colored acrylics to create a subtle background. I used varied mediums to create my samples, so let your imagination go wild. Watercolor, alcohol ink, acrylic and gouache all worked well on mixed media paper, cardstock, prepped metal and mylar.
"I spent a day in New Zealand on a sheep farm. The sheep were the show of the day until I looked over and saw the most spectacular vista of rolling hills, wildflowers and stately trees. Five years later, I painted Kiwi Idyll, my inspiration for this stencil. It’s design size lends itself to a variety of uses: art journal, home décor, smaller works featuring just flowers or tree-focused among others. In your art practice, you may see something else. That’s the beauty of art. Pro Tip: I use different mats to decide what areas I want to use to create a different composition. You can achieve the same effect by cutting copy paper into what size viewfinder you want."
