Ornate Stencil - Complete

Ornate Stencil - Complete, originally uploaded by maginthat.

I finally finished the ornate stencil I've been working on since stencil class began! I had to have a deadline...I'll be using it in the floor design for our bedroom. I promptly sprayed the design onto some ez cut stencil material so I can cut out another version that will be double the original. (shown on the right hand side)

I didn't incorporate enough bridges into the first design, so I'm going to try to remember to do that this time!!

This photo shows how the design looks when sprayed on paper! I LOVE it!!

Play Date

I had a play date with my little niece last week and we had so much fun! I had been telling her about all the creative things we had been doing in my stencil class and she was dying to try them out herself. We made a beautiful mess with fabric spray inks, stencils, Mod Podge, glitter glue, stickers, magazine cutouts....

Look how focused she is!

Our supplies.

Some of her artwork.

We used fabric spray dye because I didn't have a mask for her and I wasn't going to expose her to the toxic fumes in regular spray paint. I couldn't find traditional spray inks locally but these spray dyes worked very well as a substitute. The paper does buckle more with these paints and you also have to blot the paper with paper towels so they don't run together or smear. (unless that's the effect you're looking for)
