Forever Love Stenciled Roses with FolkArt Stencils

I have always found comfort and happiness when I was busy designing and creating. I have many interests and talents and often I am torn when deciding which art medium to work creatively in. Decorative painting is my first love; however, I also enjoy stenciling, jewelry making, sewing, crochet, needlework of all kinds, cooking, card making, faux finishes, decorating and gardening. Working in the craft and hobby industry for many years, I have enjoyed the pleasures of traveling, teaching, and sharing with others basic crafting how-tos! Currently, I am employed as the Marketing Education Director at Plaid. My career journey to this day, is still allowing me the gift of sharing with others the joys of crafting and finding their creative spirits! I hope that our creative paths may cross one day. Until then... happy creating!

  3. Position Single Rose stencil where desired and stencil rose using both Yellow Ochre and Sunflower FolkArt Enamels paints. NOTE: Stencil a random overall pattern on the pane of glass allowing some roses to fall off the edges of the glass. Allow to dry.
  4. Using scissors cut the photocopy of your photo to fit the dimensional accent pieces such as my base.
  5. Apply the photocopy directly to the surface using Matte Mod Podge. Smooth in place and allow to dry 10 – 15 minutes before applying a top coat of Mod Podge over the entire decoupaged photo. Allow to dry.

  7. Cut the Mod Podge papers – Black & White words to the size of the frame backing. Place on backing and layer the stenciled glass on top when assembling the frame.
