Stencils are the new stickers. For the longest time, stencils were boring, dated, and passe. But recently, new, improved, and totally hip stencils have been hitting the market. I found iStencils.com on Youtube, and ordered some immediately!
Here’s a little bit about iStencils from the website:
“We have the greatest selection of stencils for home decor, custom clothing, crafts, and more. iStencils collection of stencils includes over 2,600 designs…ranging from trendy wall stencils to exclusive airbrush stencil designs. All of our stencils are available in a range of sizes from 5×5 up to 36×36, & with prices starting at $4.99 they’re perfect for your next project.
We are working with artists and designers world-wide to bring you the largest comprehensive stencil catalog. Whether you are looking for classic designs in damask stencils, craft stencils, popular alphabet stencil sets or latest in DIY home decor…you’re sure to find what you are looking for at iStencils!
Regardless if you’re a beginner or an expert, iStencils makes stenciling effortless. All of our stencils are made from durable (yet highly flexible) 7 mil mylar which is strong enough to use again and again, but thin enough to achieve incredible detail wherever you choose to stencil. All of our stencils are reusable, easy to clean, solvent proof and with proper care, will last a lifetime.”
As noted above, the base price is just $4.99 USD for the smallest size. Considering how often- and with so many different materials- you can use these stencils with, I think it’s a fair price. I love the 8×8 format- which is great for using in my art journal. However, the larger 11″ x 11″ is fabulous for using on the 8″x10″ Gelli Arts gelli plate.
Here’s a video of me playing with my stencils on my gelli plate.
So now it’s time to disclose- I got samples for review. But my opinions are honest and my own- I wouldn’t say I liked them if I didn’t. And frankly, I would refuse advertising to any product that I felt was sub-standard. So there it is.
