Stenciling is all about do-it-yourself! You choose the surface, the colors, and the designs that fit your personality. With all this choice, you can easily create your own look and style in no time. From paper and fabric to wood and even your walls, the possibilities are endless.
12 lessons and 17 projects by Gisele Pope: basic stenciling (cabinet); adding details (coasters & box); highlighting & shading (corkboard and magazine holder); lettering (pillowcase); layered effects (canvas pocket organizer); layers of color (tote); sticker-type stencils (suitcase); texture paints (box); paper (envelope); rubbing technique (block candleholder and paper tag); layering items (block candleholder); and tole painting (handbag, umbrella, frame, and tray).
