Rachel Faucett, of the Handmade Charlotte Blog, was on hand to give us a peek at her new "Bohemian Bazaar Stencil" line in the Plaid booth at the CHA Mega Show. These are really neat stencils that are globally inspired designs which you can see by looking at these Moorish and Tangier Patterns.
She used the Suzani Splendor patterned stencil to paint the surfaces of these plates.
The same stencils used on a flat wooden surface. These are really nice light weight stencils which make them flexible and perfect for using with both flat and curved surfaces.
Rachel was demonstrating how to use her stencils by doing a scarf "Make & Take" using the stencils and Folk Art Multi Surface paints.
The Bohemian Bazaar Stencils were so easy to use and the results were great.
If you look closely at the project in this picture, you can see that she used her Ikat patterned stencil to paint this project.
Each kit comes with a pre-cut wood shape, floss, needle and instructions.
The Handmade Charlotte Wooden Base Cross Stitch Projects are available and several different shapes making it a fun beginning cross stitch project.
Another advantage to these wooden cross stitch projects is that they can be displayed or used in a variety of ways.
For more inspiration, I recommend visiting the Plaid blog to see the various projects that Rachel Faucett has posted there.
