Last spring I decided to try cutting my own stencils and some stamps.
Pretty simple, but fun, just using an old file folder I drew and cut out a tree. I purchased some Speedball "Speedy-Cut" and carved out a bird and a house.
Here's how I've used them......one was a journal page.
Next, I used a canvas and again painted and sprayed......
My camera makes give this bulge in the middle look....it really does have straight sides!!! I scanned the one above into the computer, think that is a better idea, if the art fits.
On the piece above and, on this one, I painted the background added tissue paper that has the birds and birdcage print then I sprayed and painted the tree trunk, using the stencil.
I used the leaf stamp on both, for the bottom tree I added copper and wire screen leaves for dimensional look, like this......
I think my original stencil has about "had it" but you've got to admit I've gotten a lot of mileage out of that old file folder.
