Turning a SKETCH into a STENCIL . . .


"I'm no model lady. A model's just an imitation of the real thing."
-- Mae West



Hellllooooo & Happy (officially) Summer!

I've been playing with a new toy: a wood burning tool! I'd been talking about making my own stencils with an arty friend, when she suggested that I try a wood burning tool and overhead projector sheets. Not only did she tell me what to do, but she then gave a stack of said sheets for me to try it. 

Try I did, and I have to say, I'm hooked! It's fun, relatively easy, and totally unique to me - or you - once you give it a go:



Have Fun & Happy Cutting!

very cool Kristin. I have made my own Victorian stencils for home decorating but did NOT have the heat tool-just lots of sharp xacto blades. this looks so much faster and I have a tool so I must give it a try:) TFS!

Ooh, how exciting! I have a wood burner I think I've used once - what a great new use for it, thank you! (of course, now I have to figure out where the heck it is!)
