Create Allover Texture Wall Patterns: Metro Collection

An Inspiring Trio of Allover Wall Patterns featuring Organic Looking Textures with Neutral Colors

When it comes to making an entrance, dimensional, patterned finishes can be the secret weapon of any elegant space. The inspired home can tell a beautiful story with sumptuous neutral colors and organic textures that are anything but boring. The easy and laid back neutral colors, patterns, and textures help create gorgeous allover wallpaper-like designs – and each of these 3 finish techniques can be customized for any design style and using a near endless color palette. There are many factors to consider for a professional, beautiful look for yourself and your clients, especially when creating stencil designs with subtle finesse. You may be wondering: 

  • What supplies do I need? 
  • What kind of neutral and metallic color combinations should I use? 
  • How do I texture walls with paint and pattern? 
  • How do you shadow a stencil or create a drop shadow effect? 
  • Are these finishes hard to create? 
  • What spaces and surfaces are these finishes perfect for? 
  • And most of do I give myself the tools for success for creating a professional look for myself and my clients? 

Allover stencil patterns allow you to create the look of wallpaper with no seams while using your favorite custom color combinations. You may be a painter looking to add these lucrative techniques to your service offerings. You may also be a decorative artist who would like to continue to build their portfolio with stunning finishes. You may also just want to bring neutral, elegant, and peaceful colors and patterns to your own home. Whether creating for yourself, or working with clients and designers, there’s no time for quick YouTube videos or Pinterest fails – you need to know how to provide a professional, successful look. 

Cynthia Davis has been both teaching and creating with stencils for over 30 years, as well as owning a beautiful allover stencil design company, Wallovers. She’s been asked about it so often that she decided to create stenciling courses to share with you. 

Here's what we'll cover. 

By the end of this course, students will be able to create 3 stunning wallpaper-like finishes and add these portfolio-building techniques as lucrative finish options for clients. You’ll learn three different finishes using a gorgeous neutral palette of whites, off-whites, silvers, grays, golds, organic textures, and more. You’ll be able to put together the right supplies and be guided step by step through each of the finishes, with top tips for each look. You’ll learn valuable techniques including stenciling with negative weed stencils, troweling, overlaying patterns, embossing raised designs, and using drop shadows to create dimensional and modern designs. You’ll also learn surprising techniques that add a more layered and complex look to your final results, without a lot of work. Lastly, we’ll provide extra pro ideas for creating canvas fine art pieces with the techniques learned.
