I know a post on stenciling is not the biggest news in blog land, but I bought some new stencils...So, I thought I would share the fun!
And she had done some projects using stencils from
Maison De Stencils
I loved that the stencils were so different from any found in craft stores and ......HELLO...They were having a "Flash" one day 40% off sale!
I purchased stencils that had a few lines of words, because It would allow me to interchange different stencils, or use different portions of the stencil...Getting more bang for my buck!
I started with a laundry sack I found in a box of vintage linen I had bought
And a flour sack towel I sewed vintage crochet on to
And a pillow
I used warm white paint with a little Butter Pecan for the towel and bag and the warm white and Dark Chocolate for the pillow
I think sometimes, just getting the right color is the key. On the towel and the bag, I used a light, uneven pressure when I was pouncing with my stencil sponge....Maybe it added a more vintage look....Maybe?
On my list of to do's is making up some pillows for my booth at Orange Tree.
But first I should ask those of you with booths...Do stenciled pillows sell!
Don't forget to your girls ready for the Dress Form linky Party in one week!
I am headed out of town for a few days to visit friends in St. Augustine, a fun little town north of Orlando. As a bonus I'll visit the fountain of youth while I'm there. If I don't get back to you right away....It's because I am busy getting youthful!
