Whew!! Three craft show weekends in a row! I’m finally able to take a breath and enjoy a little blogging, designing and crafting new things. I am sooo ready.
As promised, here is the process I used for my stenciled fall collage.
I got out my stash of fall word stencils and placed them inside the frame of a window until I had a pleasing arrangement. I then took a picture of the arrangement so that I would remember when I was ready to actually stencil.
The frames were cleaned and dry brushed with orange paint. I added a lighter dry brushing of brown paint to tone down the brightness of the orange.
Finally it was time to stencil. I repositioned my stencils. Determined the colors I would use for each one. Then I painted them. With most stencil projects, you really don’t know what you have until you remove your stencils. This one was no different, but I was very pleased with the results.
