The Be Strong stencil by Roxanne Evans Stout was inspired by clay bears made by the Pueblo Indians that she purchases in Taos, New Mexico. This particular bear symbolizes strength, and is encircled by marks resembling stitches which also have the appearance of rain or little flashes of light.

This stencil is part of the "Stitched Messages" series, all of which hold a special symbolic meaning to Roxanne. The stencils in this series all include marks and patterns designed as stitching guidelines, but they work equally well as patterns with ink, paint, etc... to create focal points in mixed media artwork, art journals, and more.

Want to try using this stencil for stitching? Here are a few tips from Roxanne:
- Make sure your paper is sturdy
- Add matte medium or clear gesso for if needed
- Poke your holes ahead of time with an awl
- Use a tapestry needle
- Be gentle and stitch one stitch at a time
