Other Supplies

Painter’s tape, Folder, Notebook, Extra decorative paper, Stiff brush

Instructions

  1. Mod Podge strips of decorative paper to the folder.
  2. Dry brush white paint over desired areas by simply putting a tiny bit of paint on a stiff brush and wiping it off with a paper towel, then brushing over your surface.  Set aside to dry or use a hair dryer to speed up the process!
  3. Use painter’s tape to hold the zebra print stencil to the folder. 
  4. Dip your stencil brush in the yellow paint, twirl around on separate section of pallet to spread the paint amongst each bristle and blot on paper towel.  Your brush is now ready to apply paint over the stencil!  Repeat for desired areas.
  5. Use the same stenciling method to apply the bike image.
  6. Add more snippets of paper to the folder with Mod Podge Matte.

Notebook:

Repeat steps three and four to apply the deer image to decorative paper. Use Mod Podge to adhere it to the notebook cover once dry.

Tip:  Wash the stencil in warm soapy water and blot dry with paper towel.
