Cheater texture stencils

Post by Denise Cold on Wed Feb 15, 2012 6:23 pm

I found these cute egg doilies at Dollar Tree today and they had a really cute design at the top and bottom that reminded me of a BAM stencil. Not as cool...but a cheap alternative; and, you can throw them away after you use them. I cut them in half so you could have 80 uses for a dollar or 160 if you cut them in quarters and used the sides for mask edging.

Sweet! Great idea! I love looking at stuff with new eyes.

When I worked at the zoo, everything at the dollar store instantly became some kind of monkey enrichment....now it's how can I use this for my display or painting, lol.

I love Dollar Tree. Bought a whole bunch of cute Easter stuff. But there are things like tin foil sheets, plastic baggies, spices and stuff like that we buy all the time.

I was actually there looking for split cake containers! LOL!

I've been on the hunt since Maggie found those little watercolor containers but haven't had any luck. The closest thing was a box of tacks but it was too flimsy.

I guess I'm going to have to order these specimen boxes I found online but they are buck each with shipping.

They don't have them on their website that I can see...but they DID have them at my store...so they might have them at your store.

Barb, that is really close but I think I'll just have to buy some new colored splits and take out my old paints and put on top. I wanted to repot my DFX white in a TAG sized container so I could put it in the case. I'm going to put pictures of the case in another thread.

Thanks so much though.
