My first try at stenciling (and first project on craftster, actually) and I think I did rather well. I got the image off Google Image Search because I was already nervous enough about trying to stencil, let alone design the stencil myself!  Wink

The completed project (don't mind the messy bed!)



Close up



Detail of the head (the hair very nearly drove me insane)




I kind of ignored every advice coming my way and did a picture with a lot of islands, but it did turn out okay. Just remind me to never do anything like the hair again!

That is mind-blowingly well done! I'd never known you'd never stencilled before!

Why wouldn't you want to do the hair again? It looks great, so I suppose it was difficult. Beautifully executed!!!

Wow! This is a fantastic first attempt, I'd never have known you'd not done this before without you saying!
