Weekend Project

 My Weekend Project

It may not look like it, but this is a project I did using my Cricut!

I bought the bookshelf on the Hwy 80 garage sale. The backing is press board and was an ugly brown when I bought it. I slide the shelves out and painted the back the same shade of blue as the walls of the room. While it was drying I cut my stencil using one of the medallions in the Damask Decor Cricut Cartridge. I just used a heavy cardstock so I cut out two. I figured one would get to soggy before I could finish all of my designs. I probably should have cut 3, but 2 worked alright. 
I taped my stencil in place with blue painters tape, then using some white paint and a small foam brush I loaded my brush lightly with the paint and dabbed it on. I was careful to dab straight up and down along the edges so the paint wouldn't seep beyond them and would leave a crisp line. I placed the design in a random pattern. I wish I had put at least one design lower so you could see it on the bottom shelf better, but books will be going there and cover up the lower area.
I thought I would share my project with a couple of Anything Goes type challenges.
