Why limit your use of stencils to your journals or fabrics? They are great for decorating your walls too!
With help from my friend and amazing interior designer Tracey Stephens, we recently built a bathroom on the third floor of our house. Michelle Ward's Circle 9 Stencil was just perfect for the walls and mirror!
Of course, the stencil was not laid out in the arrangement I wanted, because it was designed to fit on a 9 x 12 rectangle. Solution? Cut all the elements out and tape them back together to flow the way I wanted! Remember - your stencils are YOURS to manipulate and make your own.
I used acrylic paint from Deco-Art,, and chose my colors based on a beautiful painting by Denise Thewissen, and a much treasured pillow by Kristin Van Valkenburgh. I love that I "see" and think of my artist friends every time I go in this happy room! I stitched and sewed the flag like valances myself, on fabric decorated with lots of my Stencil Girl Stencils.
I hope you'll share your "off the page" stencil ideas with me. Your comments make me so happy and let me know you were here. I read and treasure every comment and will happily answer any questions as soon as I can.
