These designs are not for the faint of heart. In fact it usually takes a while for someone to figure out how you did them. I take a background filler stencil such as crosshatching, clamshell, or clouds and use it as a guide for freemotion. It is such a cool concept. Background designs such as interlocking circles, twist, flaming clamshells all become easy and unique. The really cool thing about this class is every time I teach it the students come up with even more ideas. Let me introduce you to this technique and see what wondrous things you can imagine.
