Designer Tip of Day

You might wonder what it takes to recreate a project from a magazine. There are various factors that can impact your success. The materials and tools used to create a project are extremely important. They can be almost as important as the ability of the person executing the project. Today, I decided to highlight the stencil.   I chose to use the stencils from a company called The Artful Stencil. Not only do they offer a nice selection of stencil images, but also one of quality. The thickness of their stencils is twice the thickness of most other brands.If you have every used a flimsy stencil, you know how frustrating the endeavor can be.
