Very cool.  It took me forever to successfully make a photograph into a decent stencil, so I'm impressed.  And your lines are really clean.

And it's always good to see someone else with a lot of floaters.  Although I don't have access to freezer paper so it takes a really long time to adhere all the little pieces in lettering and whatnot.

this is awesome, but i have a question. did you iron the freezer paper to the material you used? and did you use cardstock or some kind of matboard? last time i tried freezer paper + cardstock, the freezing paper ruined my cardstock when i pulled it off. enlighten me! Tongue

I made the wooden frame and then stretched two layers of an old cream colored bedsheet over the frame and stapled it taut. then I put some boards down on the floor the same height as the depth of the inside so when I ironed I would be able to push a little harder and put a towel over the boards and then the frame over that. Ironed everything on (which took FOREVER!) The painting part took literally minutes. I hope that answers your question. Let me know if it doesn't. I two have put my iron on some materials that were never meant to be ironed. Messy! Hehe

definitely digging it! I think it would be interesting with some more colors too...hmmm. but it looks awesome. I've been stenciling for a while but never used freezer paper..but this pretty much convinces me to try it. it turned out very nice.
