When I first decided to create a stenciled frame, I had my heart set on the Clear Scraps Fan Stencil. My thought was to use this trendy stencil along with some Sharpie Markers. Well, this did not happen.
First, when I went to our warehouse to grab the fan stencil, I found out we didn't have it. Boo! I was super bummed. I went ahead and looked-up Clear Scraps to see the other designs we had in stock, hoping I would be able to find another design. Thankfully I was able to find a close second. At this point, I thought I was back on track; not so much. When I tried to use my Sharpie on my wooden frame I noticed the ink starting to bleed. Another project idea fail! Now, I wasn't ready to give up on my frame quite yet, so I quickly aborted that idea and pushed forward with another idea.
After some brainstorming, I ended up deciding to go with a Moroccan inspired frame. I paired my second stencil with two blue colors of chalky finish paint. After I stenciled my frame, I felt like it still needed something. I went and raided our craftroom and found some Faber Castell Texture Gems that I thought would be the perfect addition to my frame. The texture gems really finished off my Moroccan inspired frame. So, what started off as a project fail ended up being quite lovely.
When was your last project fail? Were you able to turn the project around?
