It's All About The Line!

Okay, so using paint with stencils might not be a crazy idea but here are a few fun ideas to try. First, instead of just using one color...

what would happen if you tried two? I used two different sized stencils here. (See why you need a whole pack. :) I was working on top of vintage book pages but you could even choose to work on solid white.

Even if your colors seem super bright or just somehow off to you don't surrender. This is just the beginning! The thing that makes all the difference in the world to me is just a simple line. Once my paint has dried I lay the stencils back down one at a time and trace around the edges with a Sharpie Poster Paint Pen but any marker or pen would work. I LOVE the lines!

Once you add on a few Itty Bitties that you have traced or decorated, a focal image, and a little masking tape you have a masterpiece on your hands!

If you look closely you will notice that I even traced the paper Itty Bitties using a brown Gelly Roll Glaze pen. Once again, it's the line that makes all the difference!

Don't forget, If you pick two $10 stencil sets from my etsy shop you will get a free set of Itty Bitties.
