DIY: More STENCIL Splendor

Royal Design Stencil

It was so much fun stenciling on my mirror,

I’m at it again with a little help from

Royal Design Stencils.

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






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!

And now the giveaway for a Royal Design stencil

($50 or less, Free shipping)

*giveaway is now closed*

To enter:

1. Follow this blog then visit

Royal Design Studio.

2. Leave a comment here about which

stencil you think you’d like to use.

3. For a second chance to win,

leave a second comment telling me

whether you have used a stencil before.

Giveaway closes midnight (Central/Standard time)

October 12th, 2011 and winner will be randomly chosen.

Hope you’ll help me spread the word about the giveaway!

Peace to you right where you are.

  9. October 5, 2011 / 2:30 am

    I have never stenciled anything before, but I would love to!

  10. October 5, 2011 / 2:32 am

    Thanks for inviting me to this giveaway. I followed on Twitter. Love all the stencils but most of all the Springtime in Paris Set.

  11. October 5, 2011 / 2:46 am

    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.

  12. October 5, 2011 / 2:46 am

    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!

  13. October 5, 2011 / 2:48 am

    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!

  14. October 5, 2011 / 2:49 am

    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.


  15. October 5, 2011 / 2:49 am

    Gorgeous ideas!

  16. October 5, 2011 / 2:59 am

    I'm your newest follower. I'm so excited about his giveaway bc I have been wanting a stencil so bad!

  17. October 5, 2011 / 3:01 am

    I haven't used a stencil before to paint a wall per say. I have only used one to paint letters for my daughter and they were a poor quality. I need new ones!

  18. October 5, 2011 / 3:02 am

    Thank you for the invite! I am now your newest follower 🙂 I adore the Moroccan Stencils.

  19. October 5, 2011 / 3:04 am

    By no means have I ever tried stenciling, but after seeing your blog you give me new hope for future projects 🙂

  20. October 5, 2011 / 3:09 am

    Newest follower – I can't decide which one I like. I've used a stencil before, it's just that they are all so awesome! Whitney @

  21. October 5, 2011 / 3:20 am

    I would LOVE to use the Florentine Damask in my small guest bath in a tone on tone silver/champagne color!!!

  22. October 5, 2011 / 3:34 am

    I would love the florentine damask stencil. It is perfect for master bedroom!!!

  23. October 5, 2011 / 3:56 am

    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

    I just love how stencils have come so far from the days of ivy and trellis!

  27. October 5, 2011 / 9:55 am

    Ohhhh I love RDS! I got a stencil from them recently and I LOVE it! I stenciled some pillows thus far and intend to stencil my hallway above my board and batten this winter! THanks for the contest!

    What a great idea Michele! I've been looking for something to go in our bathroom downstairs and this is just the answer! I'm actually excited to give it a try and love it over the yellowed newspaper.

  33. October 5, 2011 / 12:01 pm

    I think you are a stencil queen, lovely Michele. I love all the art magic that you weave, and the muted colours you choose. Gorgeous!

    Thank you so much for linking up to to Modern Country Style's Fall In Love link party.


  34. October 5, 2011 / 12:07 pm

    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.


  35. October 5, 2011 / 12:07 pm

    Here's my second comment to say I have certainlt stencilled before. I was quite addicted during the mid 90's. I stencilled anything that stood still for long enough!


  36. October 5, 2011 / 12:08 pm

    I think this is my 100th attempt at a stencil giveaway. Feeling good this time! INDIAN PAISLEY!

  37. October 5, 2011 / 12:43 pm

    your project turned out lovely! I've never tried stenciling before, but I'd love to!

  38. October 5, 2011 / 12:46 pm

    Hi, If I won I would stencil a armoire that I am working on. I enjoy looking around your blog. Very pretty stuff!

  39. October 5, 2011 / 12:49 pm

    I've always loved these large stencils and am excited about the possibility of winning one. TY for the invite! I like the Large Nova Trellis ":o)

  40. October 5, 2011 / 1:00 pm

    Absolutely love your idea of using a book spine as a canvas. I have thrown them away in the past and now wish I had some to work with! I love your mirror project and also love the florentine damask you are using in these projects and would love to win a stencil. Thanks for visiting my blog and for your sweet comments. I have been a fan of your blog for quite some time now.

  41. October 5, 2011 / 1:01 pm

    At least ten or more years ago I stenciled on some fabric but when I saw your mirror project decided I wanted to try it again! It really inspired me!

  42. October 5, 2011 / 1:13 pm

    I love the Large Ribbon Damask and would love to do a project similar to yours!

  43. October 5, 2011 / 1:21 pm

    These are some really gorgeous projects!

    Visiting you from Modern Country Style's Fall In Love linking party!


  44. October 5, 2011 / 1:22 pm

    Hello Lovely,

    adore all the stencils-especially anything damask right now.

    Already and very happy follower 🙂

  45. What a beautiful piece of art you created! Thanks for visiting my blog! I have become a follower of yours. The Hearst Collection of stencils are my favorite.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  46. October 5, 2011 / 1:42 pm

    I LOVE the stenciled book pages, may have to do that one! I've never used a stencil before but I'm ready to jump on that bandwagon… haha!

  47. October 5, 2011 / 1:55 pm

    Ok, first of all your creations are so beautiful!!! You are so creative my dear. Second, how do you choose just one!! I think I would have to pick Small Ribbon Damask, I love the flowing ribbon effect. 🙂

  48. October 5, 2011 / 1:56 pm

    I have used stencils before. I stenciled an entire garden with trellis on my daughters wall when she was little, that was a chore!! 🙂
    Can't wait to see your wall!!

  49. October 5, 2011 / 2:08 pm

    I love, love, love the Springtime in Paris stencil!!! Thanks for this awesome giveaway. (I'm already a follower)

  50. October 5, 2011 / 2:08 pm

    I used a stencil for the very first time this past Saturday 🙂

  51. October 5, 2011 / 2:10 pm

    I follow you and I would love to win a stencil. I have used stencils before, but none as nice as these!

  52. October 5, 2011 / 2:19 pm

    Hi girlie,

    How fun! Thank you for the opportunity! If I could only make my projects look like yours….

    I know exactly which one I would like to win too – the paisley one! That is the one Lauren chose for her nursery (on fabric) and I love it! I would be tackling fabric dear, not walls!



    P.S Hey, I love the Swedish Dalahorse!

  53. October 5, 2011 / 2:28 pm

    Thanks for stopping by and inviting me!

    I am now following your blog, and absolutely love the Damask Allover stencil!

  54. October 5, 2011 / 2:29 pm

    I've used stencils before, but only stencils I've made myself, and never to decorate an entire wall (or room).

  55. October 5, 2011 / 2:29 pm

    Ooh Michele, this is a fabulous giveaway! I love stencils and what you've done with yours on the canvases is gorgeous!! As ever, I do love the magic you create with your artistic flair.

    My favourite stencil from Royal Design Studios which I would LOVE to win is the Fabric Damask (724)… cogs are already turning with all the stenciling possibilities!

    Lots of love to you, my lovely!

    Meera xx

  56. October 5, 2011 / 2:34 pm

    A few months ago, I cut out a small damask stencil from an acetate sheet and stenciled the long edge of a burlap table runner as a housewarming gift for a friend.

    Did I mention I love stenciling? 🙂

    Meera xx

  57. October 5, 2011 / 2:57 pm

    I'm a follower and I love stencils.

  58. October 5, 2011 / 2:58 pm

    Hello again lovely,

    Just letting you know that I've put a link to this fabulous giveaway on my blog sidebar as well as on my facebook page.

    Meera xx

  59. October 5, 2011 / 3:02 pm

    I love your little projects, and I also love Royal Design Studio. I have also done a few canvas projects using stencils. I would choose the Rockin Roses because I have been in love with it since she first posted it on FB!

    Thanks! =)

  60. October 5, 2011 / 3:05 pm

    I am loving this giveaway the stencial is beautiful. Lots of luck to everyone.

  61. October 5, 2011 / 3:22 pm

    Just signed up to follow and I can't wait to see what else you share. Beautiful, beautiful blog, it is so calming to look at!

    I have used stencils before, mostly lettering. I would LOVE to try Royal Design stencils.

  62. October 5, 2011 / 3:23 pm

    I would love to try the Embossed Stencil, "Fleur de Lys". I can think of at least a dozen projects to use that one on!

  63. October 5, 2011 / 3:38 pm

    I love the large feathered damask. My bedroom needs a re-do.

  64. October 5, 2011 / 3:40 pm

    I've used small stencils, but never anything on the wall. These stencils look like beautiful wallpaper! I've been itching to paint on the walls for years. I'm glad it's back in style!

  65. October 5, 2011 / 3:49 pm

    I really like the all over stencil Springtime in Paris. I have a wonderful old free standing cabinet with Queen Anne legs that I think it would look great on!

  66. October 5, 2011 / 3:50 pm

    And I have stenciled before…use do it a lot…always love it when ever I see it!!!

  67. October 5, 2011 / 4:41 pm

    Thank you so much for the generous giveaway! The stencils are so beautiful that I could hardly decide, but I finally chose the Palermo large. I hope I win it!

  68. October 5, 2011 / 4:44 pm

    P.S. I forgot to say that I now follow you. It's funny that I ran across your blog, because just last night, I cut out a C stencil to put on a plaque.

  69. October 5, 2011 / 4:54 pm

    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 love this stencil, it makes such a statement when you use it aol over a wall; who needs wallpaper! Thanks for visiting my blog!

  71. October 5, 2011 / 5:50 pm

    Wow, what amazing stencil work! The one I would use and I absolutely love is the French Poem Stencil. So pretty!

    Thanx for stopping by earlier and inviting me over!:) I am your newest follower.

  73. October 5, 2011 / 6:50 pm

    I love the French poem stencil! I have used a few stencils in the past but these look awesome!

  74. October 5, 2011 / 7:22 pm

    They're all so pretty, it is hard to decide on just one, but i think i like the Flourish large, or hmmmm maybe Moorish Trellis. Cool creative projects you did with yours!


  75. October 5, 2011 / 9:23 pm

    I already follow your blog! I've never worked with a stencil before, but I've been wanting to try one for a while. This is such a cool giveaway – thanks! It's hard to choose from such a great selection, but I'd pick the "Springtime in Paris" (my daughter's name!)

  76. October 5, 2011 / 9:31 pm

    I'm following and I like the black letter stencil. I need one of those for a project i'm contemplating.

    FINALLY; my bathroom redo starts on MONDAY!!!! After the tile, it will be the Annie Sloan paint on the amoire I stripped, and then, onward to stencil my ceiling! Flourish, Large goes with the tile border I picked. And planning on using a copper/champagne mix for just a touch of color and pizazz. EXCITED it is finally time!!!!!!

  85. October 6, 2011 / 2:32 am

    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

  91. October 6, 2011 / 3:09 pm

    What a great giveaway! I'm a new follower. Hands down, I THINK I'd choose the Florentine Damask. So many great stencils to choose from.

  92. October 6, 2011 / 3:10 pm

    Yes, I've used stencils before but always on smaller projects. I'd LOVE to try this on a large wall. Love the look!

  93. October 6, 2011 / 3:22 pm

    I meant to say in my last comment that I'm a GFC follower.

    Also I've never stenciled but I've been wanting to stencil our office or a bathroom!


  94. October 6, 2011 / 6:21 pm

    I am a new follower! I love you blog and your giveaway! My favorite stensil is the Eastern Lattice 🙂

  95. October 6, 2011 / 6:22 pm

    P.S. I have never stenciled before and I have curtains waiting to be stenciled in my living room 😉

  96. October 6, 2011 / 8:32 pm

    New Followers! And I LOVE the Indian Paisely stencil on their website.

  97. October 6, 2011 / 8:32 pm

    P.S. I have never stenciled before, a little nervous to do a whole wall, but I really want to try..maybe start out with my laundry room/closet!

  98. October 6, 2011 / 8:37 pm

    I'm a new follower. I think I would have a hard time choosing, but I like the Springtime in Paris and the Endless Circle Lattice

  99. October 6, 2011 / 8:38 pm

    I have done stenciling before. In fact I have come very close to ordering from their website. I actually made my own stencil, I think it would be much easier to go with a professionally cut one next time!

  100. October 6, 2011 / 8:48 pm

    What a great giveaway! I'm a new follower and I LOVE the gray and yellow stencil. Would love to try it!
    Thanks for visiting me!

  101. October 6, 2011 / 8:50 pm

  102. October 6, 2011 / 8:55 pm

    I love Moorish Trellis. I've never used a stencil before but wow, Royal Designs is amazing!!! Thanks for coming to stay hi at my blog and for leaving a comment! I'm a new follower too.

  106. October 6, 2011 / 11:03 pm

    I used stencils years ago like in the 90's…ug. But these are gorgeous and I'm already scheming.

  115. October 7, 2011 / 1:27 pm

    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

  116. October 7, 2011 / 5:44 pm

    I'm in love with the Endless Circle Lattice Allover. We are redecorating our home office and have been looking for something unique to finish it off. This would be perfect!!!

  117. October 7, 2011 / 5:47 pm

    I stenciled years ago but nothing recent. Royal Design Studio has some beautiful stencils- can't wait to try them and show them off to my friends!

  118. October 8, 2011 / 8:49 pm

    I liked the stencil web site. I will have to let my daughter know. She just bought a brand new home. And I was sharing with her th butler pantry mirror would look neat with a stencil. 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.

    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.

  135. October 12, 2011 / 5:42 am

  136. October 12, 2011 / 5:43 am

    I've used stencils before but that was back in the 90's when they weren't so chic!

  137. October 12, 2011 / 3:28 pm

    Can I love more than one? I could do a whole wall in the Nova Trellis….maybe I will! and a little French table I am working on would look charming with the Paris Postage Stamp….hmmmmm I am a follower xo

  138. October 12, 2011 / 3:36 pm

    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

  139. October 12, 2011 / 6:15 pm

    That is a great stencil! I love all of the beautiful things done with it! Thank you for linking up with Home Sweet Home!

  141. October 13, 2011 / 2:39 am

    The last time I stenciled anything I think I was about 10. I really want to try it again…there is so much more out there!

  142. October 16, 2011 / 11:34 pm

    That is beautiful! I have got to get more into stenciling thank you for the inspiration. Thank you so much sharing and for linking up to our party Show and Share this week! Come on back this Wednesday to link up your current projects.
