Stencils make an impression Stencilling is a decorative technique familiar to everyone. Patterned floral borders are always useful, but here we are looking for a more flamboyant, mural-like approach to decoration.
Floral motifs such as leaves, flowers and branches are placed asymmetrically on the wall, either larger than life or as a continuous surface in wallpaper fashion. Border patterns may run along the skirting board or around a door, or they can be used to divide a wall. Large individual items such as characters or various texts are also now popular.
An individual stencil shape can be a piece of modern art in its own right. This leaf motif has been applied with a negative stencil.
