Eons ago, i had this obsession with stenciling i practically stenciled anything i could grab a hold of in the house. If it wasn't for H's intervention i would have already turned the whole house into a giant damask wallpaper. My obsession then had fizzled and i've moved on to other crafty things (if you're a constant reader of this blog, you may have already heard how i get easily distracted by new design ideas....which somehow propelled me to do this series).  One of the many stencil projects was this couple pillow intended to be a gift for our wedding anniversary (which embarrassingly is already many months overdue and was not completed until this morning). 

Anyway, the creative process is rather simple and i got tons of help and inspiration from the many tutorials available on the web. The two links below however were the most useful and fail safe methods i have tried so far. I did however a couple of modifications like using plastic vellum or acetate instead of paper (Martha Stewart) and fabric paints in tube instead of Mod Podge/glue (DIY Silkscreen). 

Please do check out other lovely links below submitted by some talented bloggers!!! 
See you lovelies tomorrow for more crafty ideas!
