Melinda here with you today. I am super excited to share my project with you today. This month I was tasked with creating a project that used the Pazzles Stencil Material. So here is what I came up with! I created this wall hanging. I started by using the Pazzles Stencil Material . I was real excited when I got my hands on some. It is a much lighter weight than the typical stencil sheets you get at the craft and hobby stores. That means you can get a lot more creative with the type of cuts. I used the Brick Wall file. I created it in my Pazzles Software. Once I was happy with the look, I cut it out of the material. It cut like BUTTER!!! I used a semi-used mat and it had no trouble sticking down while it cut all the “bricks” out.
Once I was done cutting the material, I turned to the internet and made some homemade gesso. I found a tutorial online. I used the baking soda, paint and glue version. Once I mixed that up, I simply laid my stencil down on my canvas and spread the gesso all over. I really didn’t need any adhesive to hold the stencil down as I just carefully went over it with the gesso.
