Before going into today's technique for using stencils or masks, I'll show a sneak-peak of my new stencil coming out November 13.  (No, I don't believe Friday the 13th is bad luck ... in fact I don't believe in luck at all.)

Now on to today's topic!

Everyone welcomes a Christmas gift made with love!

Today's gift-making project is a flower pot decorated with part of my 9" x 12" Boxed Vines.

I decided to use spray paint.  Many spray paints would work for this; my choice was acrylic inks applies thru my Pat Dews mouth atomizer.  (Click on this link to watch a demo on using this atomizer, sold online at Cheap Joe's Art Supplies.)

My flower pot is 5" in diameter -- I don't recommend trying to use this stencil on anything smaller.  The horizontal top section --

-- of 
Boxed Vines is exactly the right size to nicely fit around a 5-inch-in-diameter flower pot. 

With masking tape, I secured the stencil to the flower pot:

Below:  the front view of the pot now turned right-side-up.

First, I sprayed with green acrylic ink.

When that layer had dried, I sprayed a top layer of metallic blue acrylic ink.

Once the second layer was dry, I peeled off the stencil and repeated the same two steps on the other side of the flower pot. 

While I had the spraying gear out, I used it on textured foil paper, spraying lightly over the same area of 9" x 12" 
Boxed Vines.

The "catch-all" paper from beneath the pot turned out to be pretty enough to keep --

-- for a future art project.
