Happy Hump Day, my stencil craving color enthusiasts! A recent post over at our blog friend Color Chats had us chuckling here at Cutting Edge Stencils because we can relate all too well!
Does this sound like a familiar scenario... You've hummed and hawed over which stencil to get. Once you have finally selected it; you're standing there going now what color do I stencil with? Don't feel bad cause you're definitely not alone. Everyone has struggled with what color to stencil at some point. So the next time you find yourself struggling to decide which color to stencil we have a fun game for you to play: ask yourself –Who am I? Am I Smart? Sexy? Demanding? Demure? or Practical?

After a trip to New York, I came back with the idea to add some Jackson Pollock to my own house. I had a few khaki pillows from Target that seemed like the perfect place to add that
element. We removed the stuffing and splattered our pillows with white, black, gray and blue in the driveway. These are all the colors from August Rhythm. After they dried, we re-inserted the stuffing.
I have been wanting to make a little book nook for my daughter's room before she was even born. I had this idea of making signs that had my favorite places from books. I am not a very
good painter when it comes to little details like letters. However, I read about several ways to transfer fonts onto wood and thought I would give it a try. I think they turned out pretty close to the actual fonts and it was super easy and fun. I can also be the first to tell you if I can do it anybody can do it. :)
I bought a pre-loved glass & pine china cabinet with a drawer base that had never had a finish and is paint ready, doesn't even need sanding. I want to do a somewhat rustic look in a cream color. I was thinking of a milk or chalk paint so it doesn't end up with a plastic look from todays acrylic latex paints. Can't find online from Home Depot or Michaels. (Anyone know of a store near Spokane, WA?)Where do I find these paints and how to use them? Thanks!
