Here's what I got in the mail the other day!
With just some tape, a couple of placemats, a couple of sponge applicators, and some paint sealer, I was set to go.
My placemats had a great border on the edges that I wanted to take advantage of so I lined them up side by side and taped them off.
I also taped the back where the placemats met.
I was about to open the Wicker White paint to use as the backgound when I stopped myself and decided to live dangerously. Instead I chose these two colours!
|The different finishes are really great.|
Once that was dry I tried out the FolkArt Stencil Adhesive. I love this stuff! It's not permanent and it keeps all these little detailed areas of the stencil in place while you're painting.
|It has a sponge applicator built right into the bottle!|
I've been thinking about making a large dining room rug using stencils so this was great practice for me. Instead of filling all of the space I added some interest by fading off in some areas.
|I love how the pearl finish shines.|
Before you put it in place make sure to give it a quick spray of sealer.
