5 for 5 Halloween: Stencils

Welcome to Day 4 of our 5 for 5 Halloween Blog Event. Today our theme is "Stencils". We are all sharing a project where we used stencils. Each day our 5 Designers will post a Halloween Inspired Project based on a theme. Some of us are offering prizes, so be sure to visit all the links below and leave comments.

I'm also on the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge Blog today. I'm joining along again in the October "Spooky" Word Search Challenge. I found words Like orange, black, skull, etc... to use on my project. Be sure to head over there to see more new mid-month inspiration projects!

I'm offering this prize package full of Halloween embellishments. I think you will love it. To be eligible to win, just leave a comment on every day of this event and be sure to follow me. I will announce the lucky winner here on Saturday, October 17.

made some home decor blocks for my "Stencil" project. I started with wood blocks I picked up at new home construction sites in my neighborhood. I painted the blocks orange and used a different stencil on each one. For the "B" I used the Tim Holtz Bats Stencil. On the middle "O" I used the Dylusions Skulls Stencil. And on the final "O" I used the spider web stencil from My Favorite Things designed by Mona Pendleton. 

I added several layers of silver paint and crackle paint to the letters. To finish it off I outlined the letters with a black Faber Castell Design Memory Craft Big Brush Pen and painted the sides black. This was a super easy and fun project. Thanks for stopping by and be sure to come back tomorrow for our final day!!
