Back in the far corners of my mind, I vaguely remember a week not to long ago.
We all celebrated Mother's Day, do you all remember?
Well, my Honey bought me a present. I had to wait to get this present.
I waited and waited and then It finally came! Yeah, .....
Not so fast....It came right in the middle of Labor Day Week! So I read the box, and I hooked it up, and I played with it a few minutes at a time here and there. But I wasn't able to really play until this weekend!
He bought me a Silhouette SD...(similar to the cricut machine) Then he hands me a CD and tells me "load this on your computer". It was thousands of Images that work with this machine!....I'm in creative heaven!...This machine is amazing! So much versatility. It will cut up to 8" wide and up to 39" long!
I played around with simple fonts first then I played with the DXF images.
So, here are my first attempts at making my own stencils!
This one is done with Old Barn Wood. I used the same colors that I painted the Step-back with.
Again the Old Barn Wood only I left it natural.
Then I decided to play with the scraps of Pine that I had, These are results...
I like the way they all turned out but I think I'll change the font on the one that says "Pantry Wares".
They are all 10x12 or larger. I have way to many ideas now! What do you guy's think? I wish you could see them up close, the base paint crackled and chipped. They look so old!
Now I have to find someplace to hang them...Hmmmm...
