I still don't have a camera that takes decent photos, so I'm bringing back a "semi" tutorial I created back in April, 2010 for Tea Tuesday.
Plastic I love to hate includes plastic lids. My mission was to make a stencil, so I hoped I would love the outcome. My plan was to glue an image to the plastic, then cut the stencil out using my image as the guide, rather than having to redraw the image onto the plastic lid. I wasn't sure this would work since I'm craft knife challenged, but it was the only way I knew how to cut the plastic, since scissors could stretch the plastic and ruin the stencil. Now it's time to walk you through the process I went through.
Please note that anything BLACK in this image was removed from the plastic to make the stencil. What you see in black will be what you get when you use the stencil.

Have a great Tea Tuesday. I want to welcome Patty home from her trip to Britain and Ireland. I can't wait to see what she has planned to show us with her traveling tea cup. I also hope your art and tea (or any other drink you choose) make you smile today. Please leave a link if you are drinking along with me.
