Cutting Edge Stencil Review & Giveaway!!



I am super excited to share with you a few projects I have done using Cutting Edge Stencils!!

Not ONLY do I get to show you how I used them but I ALSO get to GIVE a Stencil away to one lucky reader!!!! WOOT WOOT!!

Well first of all I was a little leary of using stencils.....it just seemed too complicated to me....but boy was I ever WRONG!

I had my first opportunity to use a Cutting Edge Stencil when my prize package for winning the DIY CLUB  included one ....

I won the Kobe Allover Stencil 
and used it in my bath
I was super impressed!
It was quick and easy and took me about 2 hrs to do this little section....
It came out so clean with very little touch up!
Their many  video tutorials  are very helpful! 
Also in my prize package was a cute little Butterfly and Dragonfly Stencil 
and I used them on my craft room floor







So I have done some wonderful projects using these Stencils!
Needless to say I LOVE Cutting Edge Stencils so when they ask if I would like to review and have a giveaway for my readers....I quickly said YES!!

I picked the Flower Power Stencil in size medium......
and here is how I used it:
I purchased 2 leather chairs on an upcycle site for $20 each......I googled how to paint on leather and came across a forum talking about painting on shoes and I used that technique....only because I had all the items on hand and I didn't want to have to go buy special leather paint...
First I prepped the chairs by wiping them down with some acetone and sanded them very lightly...this is so the paint sticks.
I wanted to add some color to my chairs and to tie in my giant clock....
I used Anita's All Purpose Acrylic in Hay & Nautical Blue and
mixed 2 parts paint to 1 part of Fabric Medium
 The trick is to use very little paint and dab.
The Flower Power Stencil comes as a set of 2
so I overlapped and use the other color....

You can touch up areas with a q-tip but
I like the 'worn' look in areas with less paint......
 After I finished painting {less than an hour} I applied a thin coat of Leather Conditioner to seal it...
See the wonderful transformation stencils can make?!?!?!?
I will be using these stencils in other areas of my home too!!
Check out The Casablanca Transformation she also used Cutting Edge Stencils on some chairs with awesome results!!

What I LOVE able Cutting Edge Stencils is that they are inexpensive, reusable, and have a very large selection! 
The possibilities are endless........
