i bought these little leather coin pouches at work, and stenciled on them. they were a lot of fun, and turned out great!
i tried out a new method that i thought worked great: for small stencils, draw your design out on a piece of masking tape, use an xacto and cutting board to cut it out, and then apply it to your surface. it'll stick but not too much or too little. =]
p.s. it seems the old lady in me is slipping out, i'm making horribly lame jokes lately, guess it's time to break out the cardigans..
posting some new items to etsy soon! they are handpainted, hand cut, and covered in a protection layer of hand poured resin. they are sturdy and waterproof, and the most colorful pieces of wearable art you can buy for around 20 bucks!
p.s. send me a message on etsy mentioning this post and i'll be sure you get a free gift with your next purchase!(just mention this post at time of purchase, i'll honor it until april 1, 2011)
