|Plaid Peel & Stick Stencils|
For the flower pot votive candle holders, I used the long stencil on the bottom:
I also used the larger flower stencils on some roly poly candle holders:
Another project I tried but did not feel quite as successful was to create "stained glass" candle holders. Using the flower pots and two colors of paint, I painted vertical lines/squares in one color and horizontal lines/squares in the others:
I like the blue version, but am not fond of the red and yellow. Maybe my Chi Omega sisters would enjoy! It's ok to let the streak lines appear - they add to the direction the paint was used.
So, we'll see how these work next week, when I hope to participate in the first show of the season. Wish me luck!
