Remember how cool stencils were in the ’80s? I had many a room border in my life back then… Just a little Lucite, an exacto knife, up to three paint colors and voila! Who needs wallpaper?
It’s amazing what people are doing with stencils now. There are tons of kits and “how to” sites out there, and the designs are SO much more sophisticated and polished than the old nod to Amish cut outs. Not that those don’t have their charm…but there are so many modern takes on stencil painting in design.
I recently saw a perfect example on Annechovie. The creations below were done with her friend Sunny Goode’s stencils.
