my version of stenciling
This is how I do it. :)I think its better and safer,because this way there is no danger of the paint overflowing and getting under the stencil.Also its much quicker.
All my stenciled projects are made this way.
Hope it helps. :)

Hey Violetta thanks for this tutorial, I've been wanting to do some stenciling for a while and the whole spray paint way seemed a bit too excessive for me, this'll do wonders!!

How do you make your stencils and how do you cut them out?

WOW, that's pretty easy. But I think this might be more practical for a small stencil since you're using a sponge. GOOD JOB!
