I was quite fascinated by the videos and posts I have seen lately on homemade Hot Glue Stencils and, after doing a little research, have discovered the original idea was from Traci Bautista. She has a walk through on her blog; if you want to check it out, just click on her name. :)
So I shared my discovery with my sister and art friend Beckie and she asked if I would try out the technique and write up a little tutorial on how I was able to make this technique work.
Well, it was a piece of cake!!! I really thought there would be a pretty big margin of error and I would likely fall into that error section, but NOPE! Even I was able to do this and make it work. :)
Below is the YouTube video I created on how to make the actual stencils. Then hop on over to my blog for more pictures and info on how I used the stencils in a couple of ways.
Thanks for taking the time to watch my video. I encourage you to give it a try for yourself! It is super easy and the patterns are endless - just use your imagination!!! :)
Go on over to Letha's blog and see how she used her new stencils in creating some colorful results: http://thismuseofmine.blogspot.com/2014/02/hot-glue-stencils-how-to-tutorial.html
