Hi Blitsy Fans! I have a fun project with a lot of impact that is super simple to make! It won't take you long at all and you'll get in touch with your inner child as you do some finger painting, let paint drip and play with stencils! I absolutely LOVE stencils. There are so many awesome stencils out there by many different companies but I have to admit my personal favorites are the Donna Downey Studios stencils. They seem to speak to me and every time I see a new one, I just have to have it. There was no way I could resist these paint brushes especially since I knew exactly what I wanted to make when I saw them. I hoard TONS of canvases. I mean, I have some 12x12's and even larger that taunt me from the recesses of my room with their large white blank stares!! haha Having come from a card making background initially, those large areas totally intimidate me. Having stencils helps me to come up with a game plan to finally put them to use. Let me show you how!
