Stenciling Your Own Tickets

Video showing how to use a stencil to create your own word tickets!

I managed to solve one of my problems today as the videos and giveaways continue celebrating my latest release at StencilGirl!

What was my problem? I love the look of tickets and all they symbolize so I adore creating with tickets.  But I get very protective of my “special” tickets because they are vintage or feel one of a kind or were expensive and hesitate to actually art with them.

Fridge Poetry Stencil by Carolyn Dube for StencilGirl ProductsNot any more!  Now, I can create my own tickets any time I want thanks to my new stencil, Fridge Poetry from over at StencilGirl.  Best of all, this is fast and easy.


Watch Stenciling Your Own Tickets on YouTube.

    I love this. As you may know a non profit group buys my small paintings at a great price and gives them to people with stage iv cancer at events. Suzanne Lindley who runs Yes! Beat Liver Tumors loves the word Hope. So we could do hope tickets.

    Where do I find blank ticosts?? I posted this on FB for Suzanne.

    • Tommy McDonell November 20, 2014, 7:43 am

      Tickets not the weird word above.

    • Carolyn Dube November 20, 2014, 8:50 am

      I think I bought them at Staples of all places. Big rolls of them.

  • Consie @ Atop Serenity Hill November 20, 2014, 7:46 am
