So I just came across stenciling, feeling crafty, and have no idea how to start. Do you NEED photoshop, I don't have it!  Tongue

you definitely don't need photoshop to stencil. there are websites that have premade basic stencil type patters (you'll have to google them, i can't remember off the top of my head), or you can hand draw things to stencil.... if youre feeling adventurous, you can try to change a photo by hand with a marker etc. to pick out the highlights of the picture (maybe with a clear sheet of like overhead paper and a permanent marker over the photo ) or you can just do basic text printed from a word program blown up to bigger sizes. ive done quite a bit of stenciling and never gone the photoshop route. hope i could be of some help.

you can make pretty much the same thing in Word just by playing with the picture formatting functions too
