Stencil terrazzo pattern

You will need:

Step 1
Step one
Make the stencil by drawing random abstract terrazzo shapes onto a piece of card. Once you’re happy with the pattern cut out the shapes with a craft knife.
Step 2
Step two
Place stencil on the first section of paper. Dab paint on with the sponges. Make sure to create a sense of randomness to the Resene colours.
Step 3
Step three
Move stencil along for next section. (To create a more random pattern over the paper turn the stencil to mirror image the first application beside it).
