Trying my hand at stencilling

DSCN0848

A while back I picked up this screen panel at the dollar store. It’s not meant to be a stencil, but I liked the pattern. Besides, for a dollar, I couldn’t go wrong.

I’ve never stencilled so I decided to try it out somewhere that is not seen a lot. This is the wall that you face as you walk down the stairs to my craft room.  It’s not perfect and it doesn’t have a repeat, so I did the best I could with what I had.

The colour I used is weimaraner, by BM.  I love it! And because it's not perfect, it looks authentically old in a Moroccan way :)

  1. It looks fantastic! I'm debating it too, thinking a stencil job in my living room but I dunno - I'd have to order one of those expensive ones. Good for you finding something cheaper to use!
