I am a big fan of oldtimer cars and so I knew I wanted to do this stencil for all kinds of projects. Check out some samples here:

Here is what I created for today:

NatKalbach_OldtimerStencil01

I do love to create some depth with my stencils -so here is how I did it here. I sprayed through the Stencil with Liquitex Spraypaints- but you can use any other paint media.

Then I cut out the car – just around the outline

I picked a page in my art journal where I had already played a bit with a background and gathered some repositionable double sided adhesive, distress ink and a blending tool.

NatKalbach_OldtimerStencil05

I adhered the old timer with the repositionable adhesive  and then applied a bit darker distress ink with the blending tool – to outline the car.

I used another distress ink color and the stencil again, which I laid over the car again and went over it again with the blending tool.

As you can see it gave a another shadow- as the first sprayed stencil image still peaks through- and it adds already more depth to the oldtimer

Now I peeled of the oldtimer car and then carefully rubbed off the adhesive dots.

Next I placed the car directly onto the background into the before outlined borders-

I do this so later when you raise the car with foam pads- there is a shadow visible.

Then I cut out some faces that would fit behind the windows

NatKalbach_OldtimerStencil12

 

and I cut out two windows of the oldtimer car on the paper

I applied foam pads to the backs of the faces

NatKalbach_OldtimerStencil14

 

adhered them using the image of the oldtimer on the background and slightly a bit off

NatKalbach_OldtimerStencil15

 

then I stacked two foam pads on top of each other- to give more height -to the back of the oldtimer car on the paper

NatKalbach_OldtimerStencil16

 

and adhered the car also slightly off

and there you have it :) I think it is a great way to add dimension and depth with stencils.

    Nice. Reminds me of the movie theater canvas that you made for me. It still hangs in a place of honor in my kitchen and the Tim Holtz film strip has stayed in place. I just ordered the typewriter stencil and now I need this one too.

    Clever ideas in your tutorial! I love the outcome! And of course I love the stencil! My father had two Mercedes from 1951, so I can recognize the picture. Sadly, both of them got destroyed in terrible accidents, one in Germany and the other in Tunisia.

    Hi Nat
    I really love that stencil and what you have done. Your page made me quite teary as my dad used to restore vintage cars. I would spend hours helping him hours spent in his shed . One car was a 1927 Chevolet it had a rumble seat and I spent hours driving that car up and down the driveway.
    They are so precious those memories now as he passed away and even after all these years anything with vintage cars makes me smile and tear up.
    So thanks for the memories and love the art and will check out your friends art too.
