In my quest for new designs, I happened upon the Silhouette Cameo machine. The machine enables you to create a design and then from the design--create a stencil. I feel sure that many "crafters" already know about the machine. But...it was news to me!
So...today was my day for experimentation. After a few trials, I created two stencils using the software that comes with the Silhouette.
I pressed this one (above) into the bottom of a large pasta bowl and onto the face of a medium bud vase.
This design was the basis for a few bud vases.
...once bone dry, I'll bisque and then onto the glazing!
