Painting with Stencils: Creating Elaborate Designs the Easy Way!

I’d love to show you a method to create decorative painted designs the simple way. I’m talking about stencils. Stencils not only make life easier when painting multiple pieces, but they can serve as a great base for a much more elaborate design!

When I sit down to paint, I find that I have a tendency to get pretty elaborate. I love swirls and colors and flowery designs. So when I ran across these pretty stencils, I could not resist! These stencils have so much potential. Create a stepping stone with just the stencil itself, or go crazy and add lots of your own touches to the design!

Whether you simply use a stencil and end it there, or add a bunch of your own designs, your end result will be something beautiful for your garden! So, let’s create!

Free Queen of Spades Pattern and Instructions

I decided to create my own design based on a pattern that I did about a year ago, The Queen of Hearts.  The Queen of Hearts was done in acrylic paint on a table top.  She is one of my more popular premium patterns.

But the poor queen has had nobody to talk to in over a year, so I decided to create her sister, the Queen of Spades.   After all, I needed something very detailed to bring out the vibrant colors in the art pencils.

And you can download the Queen of Spades pattern FREE here!
