Monogrammed Canvas

 A few months ago I had the pleasure of trying out a beautiful stencil from Cutting Edge Stencils. I have never worked with stencils before and really didn’t know what to expect. I decided to start out small (although I did entertain the idea of doing a stenciled wall somewhere in my house but totally chickened out!) and used a large canvas that I had picked up at my local craft store.
Cutting Edge Stencils has great video tutorials to help get you started, especially if you are beginner like me. I watched one first before I got started and I’m glad I did because it had some helpful tips.
The stencil that I chose was the Casablanca Craft Stencil. I have always liked the quatrefoil pattern so this was perfect.
After I painted my canvas with the stencil (I used just regular craft paint and a roller to paint it and it worked just fine) I cut the letter “M” out of contact paper using my cutting machine to create a monogram stencil and painted it right on top of the pattern.


I’m totally diggin how it came out. It really was so easy and I definitely plan on using it again.
I’m excited to let you know that Cutting Edge Stencils is giving away a stencil of your choice up to $50 in value to one lucky reader (US Residents Only).

  4. Oh MY GOODNESS! This post has completely INSPIRED me!! I am a renter, and get so sad when I see the beautiful wall treatments that can completely transform a room because I am not allowed to paint and hanging pictures is discouraged. Well, after looking at the Cutting Edge website a lightbulb moment happened!! My laundry room/large pantry is painted cream. No color. I am going to attempt to use my ASCP on contact paper and line the back walls of the pantry shelving to give the large POP of color and inspiring design! Oh, I pray this works! The stencil of choice is Zagora Craft Stencil! I love the complementing patterns. I want to use one of each design on the walls of each shelf! This could turn out to be AMAZING! Do you think ASCP stenciled on contact paper will work?
