wolf stencil 1

step 1

I cut my circle stencil out of pennant felt and sprayed the back with spray adhesive. I placed the stencil a little off center to the right. This gives you room for the wolf and name on the left side and balances out the design.

Continuing with my dark blue, I fill in the rest of the open areas. I also add a few random dots in the moon to replicate the moons craters.

Take your gray and add random, light shadows to your clouds. Don’t over due this step or it will make the clouds to dark and muddy. Now take your light blue and add a light mist over the gray and a little into the white of the clouds.

Step 7 
Take your wolf stencil and put some spray adhesive on the back and place the stencil on the lower left of the circle. Try and place the front paws on the edge of the circle. Now take your black and fill in the wolf.

airbrush tree

step 8 
Now we want to add the pine trees. The top is a downward dagger stroke and the branches are back and forth dagger strokes. The reason we added the black at the bottom, while the stencil was still on, was so we don’t have to take the trees all the way to the bottom and get a lot of overspray outside of the circle.
Now add some soft dagger strokes to the bottom of the wolf’s paws. Make them go down and to the left. This makes it looks like shadows from the moon and hides the sharp edge from the stencil.

step 9
Here I added 2 more trees and add the name to the top left. This can be one name or can be converted to a couples design by adding the two names. It’s up to the customer.

Now you want to take your dark blue and add a drop shadow to the name. After that take your white and add highlights to the name and some stars and maybe even a comet in the sky. Your design is finished! This design should take from 5 to 10 min. to complete. If your new don’t worry about getting it done this fast, just worry about the quality. In time your speed will progress and you’ll be able to do it faster.
