Stenciling is fun! I'm an instant gratification kind of gal and being able to use stencils (and MaryJo's expertise when it comes to lining and shading!) made the painting process go so quickly it was amazing. I learned the proper way to tape down my stencil, to use clear tape to make sharp edges, the proper amount of paint to use and how to use the stencil brush, how to make clouds, and how to touch up. I watched MaryJo do some lining for me and some shading. Scary! Each step my sign is getting cuter and cuter! I can hardly wait to get it finished and above Tyler's door. All that is left is the lettering, varnish, and hardware. Wahoo!
