When I say Festooned I mean Festooned

The Blue Stenciled table

To me the word Festooned means to be totally covered with a design. The dictionary says I means totally covered with flowers, that’s close enough considering I have been using it for a few months to describe my uber stenciled … Continue reading

Sweet little Antique Birds

An Antique Beauty

An Antique Beauty

Well It was really had to tear myself away from my Indian Inlay stencil from Cutting Edge Stencils but I couldn’t wait to try my free  bird stencil. When I ordered my initial Stencil they made a note I would be receiving a free stencil. I didn’t get it, but… they send it right out too me. I opened my package and I  had the cutest bird stencil. When I went to throw out the envelope I saw there were actually 4 bird stencils. Yeah four birds!  I later found out that instead of the one $4.95 stencil which is the normal gift with purchase. They sent me the complete bird $14.95 bird set. Thank You!

I wanted to try using glue instead of paint to stencil. I glued together some leftover boards I had around and got to the stencil. I used very little water.

I love the result. It’s subtle and makes the piece look like its been around forever. I think I makes some signs using this technique. I should have taken more pictures but sometimes you want to get right to it.
