The Printable Stencil
You need a printable stencil if you want to start a project right now! No time for shopping.
Just think. You had an idea for a new project. Maybe an old piece of furniture caught your eye. You knew you could breathe new life into it and make it a one of a kind work of art. All you needed was the right stencil design. If you are anything like me, you want to get started now. What better way to do that than with a printable stencil. You go to your computer. Find the right stencil design. Print it and away you go!
A printable stencil can come to you as one of the countless free stencils to print from on-line or one of the many printable stencils that are downloadable. The downloadable stencils usually are a more complex design but will help you get more of a hand painted design. They may cost a small amount but could be worth it. The designers have spent a good deal of time and effort on creating these so the small fee is understandable. Anyway, you still get your stencil right away and can get decorating now and that's the goal, right?
The number and variety of printable stencil designs is improving all the time. More crafters and artists are becoming computer saavy. And of course, stencil designers are catching on and meeting this need.
Let’s face it – we’re in a “I want it now world.” And what’s wrong with that? With all the technology we have today, we shouldn’t expect anything less.
Here's a quick tip. After printing your stencil, cover it with a clear coating like shelf liner or strips of overlapping packing tape before you cut out the openings. This will preserve your stencil for many, many uses. Just wipe it off with a damp cloth after each use. Also, I only do the top side because a slick bottom will encourage paint to seep under and ruin your painting.
Designs From Penny has a large selection of stencils that you can download and print (just look over in the right column). Browse a wide variety of stencils in subjects like Wine and Spirits, Secret Garden, Antique Door Hardware, Angels and Cherubs… and don’t miss the children’s stencils. You can choose a single design or purchase a book of related designs.
