DIY: More STENCIL Splendor

October 04, 2011

Royal Design Stencil

It was so much fun stenciling on my mirror,
I'm at it again with a little help from
One of you will win a stencil,
so be sure to enter my giveaway
at the end of the post!
This time around it was all about
manipulating a
BIG
stencil
for
BIG
scale
with just
a little time...


and a little canvas.

I chose this gorgeous florentine damask
from RDS, knowing it would work
for some of my small collage work
as well as for an allover dramatic
effect on a wall.
Remember, stencils can be used
over and over!


My canvas (8"x10") is much smaller than
the stencil so after painting it a French grey
and letting it dry, I chose my favorite
part of the stencil and pounced cream paint
over just that section.
It was finished with the 'M' in black.
(the most basic letter stencil
you can find at the grocery store).

This is the exact same stencil!

The above is the effect I'll be able to achieve
when I tackle one of my walls!


But for now, I'm loving the modern look
of a large scaled print.


For an even speedier project, use
a discarded book as your canvas.
Simply remove the pages from an old book,
paste a few inside the cover, layer on
images (or linen like I did),
and stencil as imperfectly
as you desire.
Mine was hung on the wall with a bit of silk
casually wrapped around the book cover.


A little more time is all you need
for stunning results like this.
And if you were thinking stencils
are old fashioned, think again, mama.


Your old furniture is begging you for a makeover,
and stenciling is a perfect FALL PROJECT!

Did you see what magic MMS worked
with Royal's french poem stencil?
That Marian knows her way 'round furniture!

  12. Wowza! I love your blog, and thanks for letting me know about the giveaway! I am your newest follower! LOVE the Entwined Trellis stencil. Along time ago, in a galaxy far far away, I stenciled Star Wars stuff in my sons room.

  13. Thanks for such a sweet comment. This is very funny that you invited me to this giveaway. Did you see my recent stencil post? I'm ready to stencil my powder room with a RDS stencil and can't find it!!!!!!! Seriously. I bought it a few years ago and never used it. I moved in March and have no idea where it is. I painted my powder room and now can't find the stencil. Such a timely giveaway! Well, if I could chose all over again, I'd pick the Casablanca Trellis or Chain Link. I'm following too!

  14. I have stencilled previously, with Jod! I would love any stencil that you pick out! I have my last canvas from you hanging in my stairway. Love the "Wish"canvas!

  15. Yes, I've stenciled many, many homes and even did it as a business, "back in the day". Our company was called "O Faux Fun". We did decorative painting as well.

  25. I've seen a few of these stencils floating about pintrest. I've added you to my blog roll... We (My hubby and I) are restoring an old family farmhouse. I found recently some old linoleum very similar to Casablanca Trellis. Which I've been dying to use as a tone on tone theme in the main hallway. Its 40'x 11' so maybe I'm out of my mind... The true stencil would make things so much easier.

    You can find me on Etsy as ModernFarmBaby

  40. Wow! Spring Time in Paris 3091 for sure. Oh my word my head is swimming with ideas. AMAZING.

    It's with actaul releif that stencelling is coming back in fashion as I loved how it looked and loved doing it back in the mid 90's. I boxed up my kit, so loathed to part with it. Better go and rummage in the barn to find it.

    Happy to have 'met' you today, thank you for telling me about your giveaway.

  60. Hi again,

    I have only stenciled one thing - and I like it so much that it is actually hanging above our bed. Cheesy??? It is my life statement -Swedish and English mixed all together.

    Lots of love to you, my lovely!

  77. I love the simplicity of the Hollywood Squares (do you have the music going thru your head now of the old game show? Just me?) and the fabulous Arabesque Allover... oh and the Florintine Damask... god, I can't choose. I'm terrible when presented with too many choices, don't make me choose!!! lol

    Anyway, fab giveaway - I've never stenciled before because you can't find gorgeous ones here in the UK. Even more reason why I wanna win lol

    I've missed you darlin, sorry I haven't been around much but back again and looking forward to catching up on your blog. I love the mixed pieces you've done with your stencil - I'd rather win one of those ;)

    I have stenciled alot over the years. My most recent stenciling project was to list my husband's and I's names together, then each of my children leaving space for their future spouses and then put my favorite Bible verse along one wall. My next project will be my bathroom where I just painted over the last stencil project as I am completely changing my bathroom up.
    Stencil favorite for this upcoming project: Flourish, Large

  133. I have used a stencil perhaps 25 years ago when they were crap. :) Probably a little butterfly or something lame. LOL

    I like the Allover Pro Fabric Damask

I like the classic Impression group; classic Fleur de lis #1 & 2. I did a sm. project stencil yrs. ago. I am in the middle of redecorating my home. We just finished remodeling the bathrm. And I have been changing out drapes, pictures and mirrors. Have been able to find great finds with bargin prices. Thank you for the fun giveaway, please enter me in your giveaway.

  149. "Vase and pearls all over" is awesome... I have never stenciled before but I have a feeling I am going to be starting soon!

  150. I LOVE these stencils. I think I would want the damask allover because I could use it in so many ways because of the smaller print.

  156. Second comment: Have I ever used a stencil? That's all I use! Here' why. I spent days trying to remove the worst wallpaper job on the walls of this house when we first moved in. I swore I would never use wallpaper and I haven't. I love stencils. They are easy to use and just paint over when you are tired of it. I have used them for years and years back when I was into Americana decorating. (about 100 years ago :) Old fashioned?? Never!! I have never shown on my blog how I use stencils in my home. Maybe it's time. Thank you for the fabulous giveaway. xo
