until I have a raft of them. As always, I'll never know whether what I see in my mind will work in reality.
The stencils are a delight to play with, whether underlying the heavier commercial stencils or used on their own.
In fact, if you're in our neighbourhood, you can learn how to make your own this next week. My stencil class, (called Burn, Baby, Burn) is happening on Thursday morning, February 18 from 9 am to noon. You'll learn how to burn your own stencils and even how to design them in this playshop. It's at Puffin Design, and pre-registration is a requirement. For more information about this and some other fabulous workshops, you can pop over here. Please come and play - you KNOW it's going to be a blast!
