Bridget Benton designed Post Lumber Cross Section as part of her Woodgrain Collection. The stencils in this collection are all inspired by her nature prints, done by directly inking and printing the visible woodgrains in tree stumps, logs, and lumber ends.

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.

"Stacked 4x4 lumber, intended for fenceposts, became the inspiration for this stencil! The whorls of woodgrain come straight from nature, the strong square shapes straight from the hardware store. 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 Small Tree Cross Section, Stacked Lumber Cross Section, and Big Tree Cross Section.
