Spray Paint and Stencils


















I am taking this stencil/spray paint class with Mary Ann Moss and we had our first class today. All I can say is wow! Its just incredible. We are making covers for our stencil portfolios. Here is my front cover.

















and the inside front cover. I used many things as stencils, a plastic placemat, cake doilies, great papers sent to me by Janet. I used black, silver, white, blue, green, lt turquoise and purple on my pages so far.

















Here is my back cover, I also used lace and pieces of lace fabric and some hand cut stencils.

















and the inside of the back cover. I definetly found that Mary Ann makes it look so easy. I had problem with the spray paint dripping blobs of paint that I did not like. I just blotted it and painted over it. I think these pages are ok for my first try at it. Plus I may but putting more things on these covers after they sit for a little while. This class is sure going to be fun.
