It doesn’t matter if you've never used stencils before. No problem!
Stencils can help you create personalized art, whether you are painting a mural, re-designing a piece of furniture, decorating a T-shirt, breathing new life into a floor or even advertising for a garage sale. They can be used with paint applied from a brush, an airbrush or spray-paint. Paint words, letters, a child's name or any other sentiment on a wall or door. Compliment your driveway or outdoor patio with designs for concrete floors, wood floors or on a rug. Frost a mirror or window. So, as you can see, your options are unlimited!
Maybe you have an image you want to turn into a stencil. Something from a magazine you love or maybe a photograph. Check out our Make Your Own page for all the details on how to be a designer.
And just remember, you don’t have to be a Leonardo da Vinci or Picasso to be an artist. No matter what your skills may be, this site can help you get the look you desire. In fact, with a little practice, you can create some amazing works of art and have a great time while doing it! You can save money doing your own decorating and making one-of-a-kind art for your home. So come along with me and you’ll soon be on your way to becoming an artist.
Stencils are great for Seasonal Crafting and it's never too early to get started. Nothing like creating to get you in the spirit, right? Well, to help you along the way, I've added a new button (over there on the left) called "The Holidays." It's got many ideas on projects for you to try, so check it out!
Don't forget to look for ideas on using stencils to make your very own custom greeting cards. It's great fun and you'll make someone feel very special when they receive a card that you made just for them.
There is nothing quite like a traditional homemade Christmas. When you give someone a gift that you made, it is a one of a kind, truly unique gift that they cannot buy anywhere. So, quit spending so much time trying to get a parking spot at the mall and stay home crafting some wonderful gifts that your loved ones will really appreciate.
I must admit that I have some selfish reasons for doing this web site. It has inspired me to start learning more about decorative painting, trying new techniques and building a community for sharing ideas. So come back often or better yet subscribe to our blog and share your thoughts and experiences.
Well, I hope this site will inspire anyone thinking about using stencils to jump right in and do it! It’s such a fun hobby and I cannot express how much pleasure it has given me. If I can share that with you and a few others then my mission is done!
