Hi!  I'm a long time lurker of craftster, and now that I've got my computer hooked up, as well as my digital camera in operating condition, I can finally post things of substance!!

So first of all, here are some stencil projects:

A tee for my friend Missy (no kidding!).  She got gastric bypass over winter break, so I made a shirt so we could recognise her.

The back! wooooooooo!

Multi project of snowboarders.  This is white jesso on cardboard, watercolor, spray paint, and the snowboarders are stenciled with acrylic.  It was a birthday gift, and she LOVED it!!  Grin

Knitting bag for my friend Sharon.  That yarn ball is COMPLETELY stenciled, including all the teeny tiny black lines.  It is probably my favorite work though.  I wish I would have made the stencils out of something more sturdy then notebook paper though.  I would like one for myself.

And this is me!  Not stenciled at all, but I thought I'd put a face to the name.

I will also be found at the knitting, crocheting, jewelry, clothing reconstrcution, and wedding threads.  Maybe more!!

Nice to meetcha!!

cute face for the name  Smiley And very, very good work.  I'm intrigued as to how you did the yarn :S  Do you have a picture of the stencil itself?

Awww, thanks for the sweet comments everyone!!

As for the yarn ball, I did a drawing on cardstock with black sharpie.  Then I traced just the outside of the ball onto regular notebook paper and cut it out for the purple (then cut out with exacto).  Stenciled that.  Then the next stencil was all the lines going a certain way (traced onto notebook paper, cut out with an exacto).  Stenciled that.  Then all the lines going another way.  I think total for that ball 4 or 5 stencils were used.

And the snowboarders, I believe a google search of snowboarder and something like wallpaper border.  Some combination of the two.   I know that what I took the stencil from was some kinda wallpaper.

Thanks again everyone!!
