I found this extremely large tray on one of my outings and then a few days later I found this stand for a butler's tray. This was a marriage made in heaven and may they have a long happy life together.
I knew I wanted to share this new stencil source with you so it was time for me to come up with a new project. I found a rose image, some fancy flatware designs on a napkin and a pastry image I had saved on my Pinterest ephemera board. I used my reverse decoupage technique that you can read about here. Once the images were transferred, I got out all of my various French stencils and stenciled some stray words and designs to fill my space.
The new stencil I used is the Boulangerie, Cafe Chaud et Beignets with the beautiful scrolly design in the middle. This is a very large stencil so it's perfect for a table top. I usually use the Maison de Stencils which I still love and I used some on this tray as well, but they are very pricey. The stencils they carry in this size range are around $100 each. This new stencil source averages $35 per stencil and the sizes are extremely generous. They are made of heavy Mylar too so you can use them over and over. Click on the link here to see my new stencil source. I bought them from Etsy. She shipped quickly and responded to my questions immediately. She also carries vinyl lettering if you prefer a one-time use application. Since I am reselling my projects, I like things that can be used over and over.
I hope you are having a safe and happy holiday season. I always enjoy your visits.
