To create fantastic contemporary large wall effects try stencilling one feature wall with these modern silhouette blossom motifs to create a backdrop of falling blossom and leaves. Work in single colours for a stronger silhouette effect, such as white on a contrasting colour, or in blended tones of similar hues to create depth and contrast.
The blossom motifs can be combined in any way you like – try overlapping the different designs, and simply stencilling in one colour to create the look and of silhouettes – growing the design over any chosen area, either vertically, horizontally or in all directions. A simple and striking look.

The blossom motifs can be used as falling branches, or boughs growing sideways, or a combination of both. Intermix with the graceful trailing willow motif and mimosa buds. Or simply use randomly as a trailing wall flower mural or on fabrics for modern floral effects. You can also use a palette of different colours in either pastel or bright shades, layering the stencil designs to create an abundant summer garden effect. Different examples of how to use this stencil are shown on this page.
