Teresa John knew what she wanted in this room and she found just the stencil to create the look.
She first painted the wall a rich brown color then used our Raised Plaster Aspen Tree Stencil Set to create ceiling to floor trees to completely fill this lovely wall.

Using the joint compound as we recommend, she creates knarly looking bark that looks and feels like real bark!
Pre-tinting a portion of the joint compound with green paint took the step of having to paint the leaves completely away.

She called it fun…..I call it rustic elegance in a stencil!

Our friend Julie McDowell from Dandelions and Poppies shares a new piece she just did with our Raised Plaster Swirls Wallpaper Stencil.

Here’s what she said:

I have had this dresser for many many years, I painted pink and blue for my oldest daughter when she was small, years before I even knew I would be doing this now. We dragged it across the ocean when we moved from the UK to Canada and it has been many colours and even lived in the garage, all alone and forgotten. It is is now resplendent in Fusion Mineral Paint Ash and Brushed Steel. I used a stencil from my favourite stencil designer Victoria Larsen Stencils. I cannot bring myself to sell this piece, sentimental fool that I am!

The combination of the two gray colors is not only striking, but makes this piece so elegant! 

The stencil design adds just the right amount of detail to this dresser. I can see why she doesn’t want to sell it!

Wouldn’t this also be an exquisite treatment for a focal wall?

I absolutely fell in love with her use of our Raised Plaster Acanthus Flourish Stencil on faux finished brown walls then embellished with metallic gold. Simple and elegant yet it really catches your eye and brings elegance to those lovely walls.

 

On her site, you will see extensive use of our Raised Plaster Aspen Tree Stencil as well. You’ll get some great ideas from this wonderful gal!

Kathy Frates loves beauty, Kathy Frates loves dramatic decorating. But she’s also someone who loves the elegance of “tone on tone” She achieved that with our Raised Plaster Frilly Acanthus Stencil  

At the staircase in her home, there was a blank wall. Not a fitting place for a simple painting, but screaming for something wonderfully ornamental.

So she plastered the design and then painted over it with rich, chocolate paint.

All I can say is “Wow!”. This wall changed instantly from plain to beautifully elegant!

Simply painting over a raised stencil design gives you the look of embossed wallpaper. (You know, that highly expensive stuff!). So give it a try. Whether it’s on walls, furniture or ceilings, you’ll be amazed at the results!

Teri Chappel loves updated and modern and being the creative woman she is, she did a bang up job decorating this wall to achieve just that!

plaster-stencil-stacked-stone-teri-chappel

Using our Raised Plaster Stacked Stone Stencil, Teri used common joint compound with the stencil to create the stone wall. Joint compound dries pure white so there’s no need for painting or adding color to the compound in this case. Just be sure to pre-paint your wall the color you want the stone grout to be. In this case, the wall was pre-painted gray first.
What a perfect background to the adorable safety pin wall hangings!
Super job Teri!

I often use my own walls to showcase my stencil designs. Besides, I like to change things up on a regular basis and that’s FUN!

I had just had a great wood stove put in along the long wall in my living room. That wall just screamed for something…..anything! But what would go best with a wood stove? Aspen trees! And what did I use? Our Raised Plaster Aspen Tree Stencil.

plaster_tree_trunks

I began by using both the large and small trunk stencils. Now, we all know you can’t repeat a stencil while the plaster is still wet, so you either wait (impatiently tapping your toes), or you do the “skip” method. Do the first repeat, skip the second, do the third and so on. Once they are all dry, simply fill in the repeats all at the same time!

plaster_tree_stencil_branches

On dry portions of the trunk, you can also start adding side branches.

I love taking some of the trunks right up to the ceiling so that they appear to “disappear” right behind the ceiling level.

As you begin to add leafy branches (attached to the side branches), the trees really start to take shape.

Adding paint colors right to the joint compound makes coloring your leaves super easy! No hand painting required!

I loved this wall right up until I bought new furniture. Now the wall color was too orange. But that was easy to change. Wall paint, a paint brush and a few hours later and the background was gray! Tah Dah!

There are just days where a stencil designer has to do something extraordinary to give herself a sense of true satisfaction.
My latest entertainment session wound up costing me hours in clean up work on the computer but I loved every single second of the task.
Peacocks in decorating are all the rage these days so I took that cue and created my own large, peacock stencil.

The fun part came when it was time to plaster and paint it!

My personal plans for this intense stencil design is to do it on canvas over a mural background then hang it as the focal point in my master bathroom

There are so many surfaces that we don’t even think about decorating, but when it comes to elegance, don’t forget your doors!

I have 6 panel doors in my home and I love raised design. It always reminds me of those beautiful mansions on Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles or like the old movie sets back in the 1940s.

plaster-stenciled-door

I loved having these doors in my home because they screamed for something detailed and wonderful. So I created a series of 3 designs specifically sized for these 6″ x 20″ panels.

Those designs are

Raised Plaster Chaumont Panel Stencil (The one I chose)

Raised Plaster Bay Leaf Panel Stencil

Raised Plaster Leaf Panel Stencil

I used plain joint compound to plaster the design on to the panels, then primed the doors and painted them the same color as the walls.

plaster-stenciled-door

The look is highly ornate, but rather subdued because of the tone on tone color. Those doors sort of sneak up on you in a way and I’ve watched my guests “discover” the design panels rather than the doors simply “screaming” for visual attention.

They’re elegant, they’re classy, and they are no longer plain.

When she showed me this photo of what she did to a clients fireplace wall, I just about fell to my knees.

Its started out as a simple blank space. But after Elaine used our Raised Plaster Swirls Stencil, it became a wall of massive elegance!

She simply repeated the stencil over the entire surface to act as an embossed wallpaper design. It was the perfect design for this lovely space!
