Rose Window

Shortly after the fire at Notre Dame, Jenny Peruzzi came out with a stencil based on the Rose window. Of course I had to buy the stencil and finally had a chance to really play with it. It's an intricate stencil and you can use the whole thing to make a big mandala or just use part of the stencil as I did here. Look at the picture below for the stencil itself.

First I traced the stencil lightly with pencil. I used my Inktense pencils in a somewhat random manner so I could get really strong color. I wet the pencil drawing carefully to blend the colors. I then outlined each shape with a gold gellyroll pen. The gold is hard to see unless you really enlarge the photo.

These are the colors I used.

The stencil is available through Jenny's Etsy shop - Acadia Laser Creations. It may not be in stock right now - contact Jenny if you are interested,


  1. This is soo pretty! I just got some inktense pencils - I'm going to try this!

  2. A beautiful piece Sue. Normally I wouldn't be a fan of so many bright colours in one place but the intricacy of the design encourages them to play well together. Lovely work!

  3. Sue, What a great way to use part of a stencil! The colors are lovely. You are always an inspiration to me. Thanks, girlfriend!
