Stencil Me In
This spread from my journal shows a much used stencil that finally fell apart so I just glued what was left into my journal. How did I do it? Well, I roamed through pictures of myself and found one I thought I could work with to make a stencil. Okay, now what? How do I do this? I surfed to find tutorials on stencil making. I like what Gary Reef is doing. I used PhotoShop to get the picture "stencil ready". Once I printed on card stock and used that as the stencil. Another time, I printed on plain paper, stuck it under glass, put the acetate film on top of the glass and used an exacto knife to cut into the film using the printed drawing under the glass as a guide.
