Stencil Me Inby Marthe Le Van
Bold silhouettes are bursting out all over, enlivening everything from home furnishings and gift items to fashion and accessories. They look fabulous—and stenciling is a simple, wonderful way to achieve that exciting graphic style. Not only does this refreshingly modern book provide boundless inspiration and instruction on the craft, but it actually includes 28 removable acetate and laser-cut stencils to use on everything from t-shirts to pillows.
Beginners will learn how to apply the stencils to diverse surfaces, working with materials ranging from paint and ink to spray, etching cream, and even bleach. See how to combine colors, do overlays, create masks, and produce personalized, handmade stencils. And, when things don’t go exactly as planned, there’s a helpful troubleshooting section to turn to.
But the real fun comes with the wildly creative projects for walls, furniture, tote bags, leg warmers, and more. Each enclosed stencil is showcased on at least three items using a variety of styles and techniques. So whether it’s a skyscraper silhouette or pop-art flowers, a retro robot or a graphic grouping of birds, these cool patterns will flood readers with ideas!

I was pleasantly surprised by how many stencils were included. The illustrations and instructions were clear and easy to follow. They had alot of great ideas.
There are a ton of stencils. I really love this book.
I've found it very inspirational and filled with great ideas -- even for beginners.
I have been involved with stenciling for some time and didn't need much in the way of instruction but I can verify that there is a lot of good information in this book. Very understandable and the photos are quite nice. The stencils are of very good quality and will last for a long time. And with only a few exceptions (and this is just a matter of taste), the stencil designs are truly fabulous. Really, one of the major reasons I bought the book and why I think it is a very good value. A nice gift to the stencil artist in your life.
This was a great book. It would be a great addition to any crafters library. The book is informative and useful. The best part is the stencils included in a neat reuseable holder in back of the book. I would reccomend.
Not only does this book have great photos and instructions for projects, it has the stencils included.
It shows you how to stencil on anything from fabric to metal and much more.
The stencils that are included are great, and very easy to use. I recently stenciled some premade aprons using several of the stencils from the book, and they worked really well.
I'm happy to recommend this book to beginners as well as the old pros.
