I was so excited to be asked to do a review on a stencil from Cutting Edge Stencils! Before they contacted me, I already had a project that I was going to stencil, but I was going to try doing it with vinyl. Once I started, I quickly realized how much easier it was to use their stencil over vinyl. Here is my project. It's a magnet board that I covered with stenciled fabric.
After searching their website, I found this stencil and knew it would be perfect. Their shipping was fast! I was amazed at how quickly I received my order. I started by spraying the back of the stencil with adhesive, then I placed it on top of my fabric. I used a stencil brush and dabbed on white paint until I had covered the entire stencil.
I thought it would be fun to add a little color, so (after the white had dried) I dabbed some blue and green over some of the smaller seeds of the stencil.
Then, I carefully pulled the stencil off the fabric. Isn't it a little scary to lift off a stencil? I've had plenty of stenciled projects where the paint has bled, so I was pleasantly surprised with how good this looked and how easy it was.
Then, I glued the fabric to my metal board and added a frame. I thought it would look cute with some seeds blowing off, so I found a few little ones from the stencil and added them to the top corner.
Using this stencil made this project fast and simple. I'm already thinking of other places I could dress-up with a stencil!
Cutting Edge Stencils has great information and videos on their website, too.
You can also find more videos on their You Tube channel.
The winner is. . . .
