Message Boards by Aleta Jacobson

Ages ago, as a brand-new designer at StencilGirl, I drew inspiration from my collection of pressed flowers.  One stencil that emerged was Swatton Flowers Version 1 (we didn't have fancy titles back in those earlier days) and it makes me happy to see this stencil still being used by artists.  Aleta Jacobson delighted me with these three message boards --

Clicking on the image above, you can enlarge it to better see details.  The center message board is the one where Aleta used pale green paint over a monochromatic blue background to create a stunning piece of art.  The above photo shows the message boards before clothespin-like clips are added in a vertical row, down each of the boards.  Once each board has its three clips added, messages can be easily inserted for display. 

My 6"x6" stencil itself looks like this:
