Wallovers' allover stencils are designed to be repeated to create a complete "wallpaper-like" finish. Many people also choose not to repeat them completely and use some of the elements as separate designs. If used as intended, the pattern will repeat using the outer cut shapes as registration marks and shifting the stencil north, south, east and west. The area to be painted is indicated in dark gray on the line art and the registration marks are in black. You need only paint the center part of the design each time you repeat.
