Welcome to Stencil-a-Palooza! Several days a week for the next month or so I'll be featuring one of my eighteen stencil designs for The Crafter's Workshop! Each post comes with a giveaway. Leave a comment answering the question-of-the-day and you might be the winner of that day's featured stencil in both 6x6 and 12x12! Comments will remain open on this post for seventy-two hours. The winner will be announced after that. In the meantime, if you'd like to purchase any of the stencils there are many in-person and online shops to choose from (including my own little online shop). See a complete list here.
Meet TCW228 Herringbone:
- The chevron stencil is a series of pointed shapes stacked on each other. The herringbone stencil is a series of off-set diagonal lines.
- The chevron stencil is dense. The herringbone stencil has a more airy quality because of the spaces between the herringbones.
- The chevron stencil was designed to create an overall pattern. The herringbone stencil was designed to create either an overall pattern or a single stripe.
- You can easily piece together a chevron background with the chevron stencil. I'm not sure how you'd piece together a herringbone background since the pieces are disconnected. So the chevron stencil is better for any sort of paper piecing.
A lot of people think of stencils as having to be used with paint or ink, but you can use many other materials. Today I have a quick and fun tutorial for you on how to make these cool glittered circle embellishments.
Of course, you can get inky with this stencil:

Just a reminder: To be eligible to win, you must post your comment in the comment section of this blog post. You cannot post on Facebook or by replying to the e-mail (if you subscribe) in your inbox. The reason for this is that I pick a winner via "random number generator" so I need a single list of comments.
Thanks for stopping by!
