I belong to the Stencil Club (and have been chosen to be a Stencil Voice in the past) details of the Club can be found here - I get so much pleasure when that envelope arrives every month with goodies.
To the project...
Being in the UK it was not feasible to use the same box as everyone else
I made my own - 350gsm kraft card
Next I painted with white gesso
I knew one stencil I wanted to use and so masked off areas using sticky notes
I had delayed making, because I had so many ideas, and they were getting in the way of actually doing anything. I settled on wanting also to use a particular paint effect
Pebeo Dyna Acrylic - it is two coloured, this means it shows up differently on white to black.
So after auditioning I settled for using a StencilClub stencil
by Julie Snidle with black paint
I also auditioned the Dyna paints but the one which I found to show up the colour change the best was the Violet/Blue No. 356, painted over entirety
The stencil which had been in my mind from the beginning was a circle one from the founder of StencilGirl® - Mary Beth Shaw
Used with a sparkly gritty paste - Granite Paste by Cosmic Shimmer
The lid is Gran Perla and the sides Black Pearl
And here we have the result
