Stencils are versatile because of all the different ways you can use them and the wide variety of art supplies that play well with them! Here are some of my favorite ways to use StencilGirl Stencils!
Of course you can use stencils with paint but what about ink? Absolutely! Here’s one way to use them!
Gel plates and stencils are like peanut butter and chocolate, meant to be together. So many ways you can use stencils on a plate!
You can “stretch” your stencil to create different looks, so that a short stencil suddenly becomes tall!
Size doesn’t matter when stenciling! You can cover any size area with a repeating pattern.
You can combine two or more stencils together. A butterfly can help her fly!

Ever have an ugly print or paper? Stencils can rescue that!
Create conversation starters with stencils for your next gathering!
Stenciling words onto tissue paper makes it easy to have just the word you need on hand when you’re art journaling, or collaging, or cardmaking.
