A fan-shaped stencil

A new board game in the house usually means some new stencil template boards for me! After you've pushed out all the game pieces, you're left with a board with some interesting-shaped holes. This new one has fan-shapes.

The stencil shapes reminded me of Shattuck, so I pursued that idea when I did the tangling. I've placed the tile on the stencil to match with the fan shapes I traced.

Next, a Renaissance tile with black and brown inks, and white pencil. I traced the stencil two times, in different directions.
Tangles: Black Pearlz, Pearlz, and a whole lotta stripes.
Back to black on white. Again I traced the stencil in two directions, this time resulting in a string with three rows through the tile.
Tangles: Betweed, Black Pearlz, Chebucto, Elven,
and again, a whole lotta stripes
Aaand, back to a Renaissance tile, with black and pink inks, white and graphite pencils, this time with some random fan shapes.
Tangles: Beadlines, Drupe, Pearlz, Perfs, Printemps,
and a nod to Lotus Pods
I've used board game leftovers before. To read about some similar stencil work, check out this post.
