I have totally been hit with the stenciling bug.
I find myself looking for things to stencil.
I also have Spring fever - there is no hope for me.
By combining the stenciling bug and the Spring fever I was able to come up with
this cute little stenciled canvas.
The other day I was at Wal-Mart in the craft department looking for some inspiration
to come up with something to craft for Spring.
I found this flower stencil and thought it was Springy
had no idea what I was going to do with it.
It was less than $3 I think and it has three pages of flower stencils
ranging from large about 4 inches in diameter
down to small about 1 1/2 inches in diameter.
Still having no ideas what I was going to do I went to the garage and started
picking up anything that needed a coat of white paint.
The frame in the front there had a picture in it when I bought it at the thrift store.
The picture was glued around the edges to a stretched canvas mat - SCORE....
It was in perfect condition.
So I decided to use my new stencil and make some art on this canvas.
Quite simple to do.
Just tape the stencil you want to use to the canvas and paint.
I used craft paint and a regular artist brush.
using only a little paint on the brush, dab in the stencil area.
And before long you will have a really cute piece of art.
The bird is the stencil I used for the china plate I stenciled.
I just added it in amongst the flowers.
I also added a few highlights to the stencil so it wouldn't look so flat.
I love how it turned out.
So Springy and cute .
I think it will be perfect hanging in the little area over my kitchen sink.
I spent today stenciling a number of those items on the table above
a few that aren't there.
So, I am sure you will be seeing this little stencil turning up again.
How about you have you been hit with Spring fever yet?
