Hills, skies and more with the Torn Edge Technique

© Laura Murray 2011

Although the effect looks very painterly, the rolling hills shown here can be easily achieved with a few simple tools. No artistic painting skill required!


  • Several paintstiks in colors suitable for your project.
  • Solid color fabric, or tone-on-tone batiks/hand dyes.
  • Standard stencil brushes — one for each color used. Generally, the larger brushes work best because of faster coverage.
