I am sure many of you have stencils hidden away somewhere but if you really don't have any, lots of things can be used instead as a stencil.

die cuts
children's toy shapes
wooden words and shapes
negatives from dies and punches

I have so many stencils that go back to the old ruler from school with the letters of the alphabet and numbers on it, through which you could trace out words and make headings on your project books.
I have old metal ones - they can also now be used with the Big Shot for embossing!
I have old plastic ones containing so many images on an A4 0r A5 sheet - based around theme such as Animals or the Sea.
I also have a lot of new ones purchased when I first came into contact with mixed media work and started to play with paints and inks.

There are so many excellent YouTubes out there on using a stencil in your work 
- just go to YouTube and enter Using Stencils

Pinterest.....oh boy!

Using a tree stencil, spray ink colors over top - love this color combination.

What can you not do with Tim Holtz and Stencils and Sprays .......
and Tim is not the only one!

So - let's get going and see what we can make!

The Design Team have some inspiration to get you started.
