Of course! Which is why I decided (shut up, stop laughing at me!) that I could take a stencil from a book about stenciling I got quite some time ago, modify it (I can still hear you laughing) to get rid of the fleur de lis and add ivy leaves (spades if you prefer though I deliberately made the leaf asymmetrical) and lay it out properly. You see, in the original it wasn't even. It was wider than it was long, which wasn't a big deal, but when you folded it in half either way, it was crooked. So I straightened it all out. It only took, oh, about two hours working with a ruler and a curved edge. And now I'm in the midst of slicing it out with a razor. The best part? I won't be done when I'm finished cutting it out. No, that's just the beginning. I have to treat the watercolor paper so that it doesn't absorb too much moisture and warp. And then I have to actually tape this thing up, stencil it on, move it down to the next marked spot and stencil again. All the way around the room. Well, okay, I can skip the wall with the oh-my-gawds-what-were-they-thinking glue-on paneling that's peeling off now. (I have plans for that wall later.)
Real artists use acetate and a hot acetate cutting thingy to cut out a stencil. I don't have acetate and a hot acetate cutting thingy, so I'm doing this the old-fashioned way, the way they used to do it before acetate.
Wish me luck. I'm gonna need it.
