FolkArt stencils

Share It:

I am so excited to share my latest project using  FolkArt stencils!  Ellie had this little white table next to her dresser that has always bugged me. It's just white and blah so when I had the opportunity to use some great crafting supplies from Plaid, a name I know and trust for crafting, I couldn't wait to begin!

 I received a box of goodies from Plaid which included one of their FolkArt stencils, FolkArt acrylic paints, and some really neat stencil pouncers in different sizes. FolkArt paints are some of my favorites to use so I knew this project would turn out well.

Isn't this stencil so sweet?  It is perfect for Ellie's room!  

Here is the table before I stenciled it. It is fine this way but I knew it could be so much cuter when I was done!

I taped off the areas I didn't want to paint and then taped the stencil in place.

Using a pie plate as a palette, I began to pounce some paint onto the stencil applicator and then I pounced some of the paint off onto a paper towel. I knew that too much paint meant bleeding under the stencil and I didn't want that!  Then all I did was pounce, pounce, pounce to fill in the areas of the stencil!

I used the largest applicator for the large sections and the smaller ones for the leaves and bird. I blended the different greens to give the leaves some variation.  I also added a large border of the same pink I used to stencil the bird and I also used a small paint brush to dot the pink around the leaves like flower blossoms.

I decided to add the stencil to the front of the table as well just to make it a little more colorful!  

  The  FolkArt stencil was so easy to use and the FolkArt paint is always smooth and true in color to use. I also really like the variations in the brown on the trunk...isn't it cool?  

I am so happy with Ellie's little table now!
