|I grabbed this old frame from the back of Abby's closet. I had always had it by my desk in my classroom. Those are some young faces. I painted the frame green...actually using leftover paint from the green behind it.|
|I decided that I would do a freezer paper stencil on some left over fabric. The first step in freezer stenciling...lay freezer paper on top of your template and cut it out using a craft knife. I have been playing around with Picnik, a free photo editing site. I made this little M-thingy using some of the Picnik features.|
Once I had re-cut the stencil and ironed it onto the FABRIC, I painted it with fabric paint left over from this project. I framed the fabric in my newly painted green frame, leaving the glass off. Done.
|Not perfect, but I still made myself put it up. We call that personal progress.|
|When my Grandma gave me her sewing table, I found a tin of her buttons, which I used here. A definite treasure.|
|Crafting on a budget. No money spent!|
Freezer paper stenciling is so versatile and really easy. Give it a try!!
(And now it is April...off to the craft store I go.)
