My first try at bleach stenciling... They are wrinkled I know, lol...

I've re-uploaded this photo a bunch of times but it keeps showing up upside down... sorry...

I posted this with the rest of my bedroom in Home Sweet Home, but since it's a stencil I'll post it here by itself... When I reupholstered this bench with pink and painted the wood parts black it just looked to classy. I needed to "punkify" it with grafitti Cheesy

My stenciling is always a little messy. I haven't found the perfect paper to make the stencil with that won't soak through... I also have a problem with getting the paper to stay flat if there is wind.

Nice job!  Have you tried using freezer paper?  It's great because, you can iron it down, but comes off very easy!

Freezer paper is really great! Also, I've used contact paper. The only problem with it is if the stencil is too detailed it is difficult to get it on without having it fold up on itself haha.
