The Story Of My Plaster Stencils
On Sunday my friend Helen Morris, she of The Stencil Library, came to the cottage for the day. I mean, how cool is it to have a friend who has her face on on a wall decoration? She was a model, can you tell?
Anyway a while back, she taught me how to do a plaster stencil and I bought the special stencil from her.
I did said stenciling but couldn't show it off here because my camera wouldn't show the 3D effect properly. I blame the camera not myself, it's easier.
Helen arrived, whipped out her camera and went around snapping away and caught the effect brilliantly.
She even managed to photograph the section above my oven
that I couldn't manage due to the fact that my camera (not me) kept catching reflections from the matt varnish I had applied to stop cooking splashes.
What I am trying to say is - it's bloody hard to have a beautiful, tall, artistic, well spoken friend who comes along and in minutes can do what I have tried for months to do and to top it all she makes the best cappuccino ever.
