Even if you think you have no artistic ability, you can transform dull, dreary surfaces into works of art with the aid of this easy-to-use primer. Unlike most other art forms, stencilling is a simple craft to master, given the right instruction. Stencilling for the First Time starts with the basics: how to choose and position a stencil, types of paints and applicators, and the advantages and disadvantages of each, and then moves on to 25 fabulous projects, each covering a particular issue. In no time you will have picked up the techniques needed to enhance any room or piece of furniture in your home. With Stencilling for the First Time you'll discover the creativity you never knew you had. Art has always been a passion for Rebecca Carter and after receiving a scholarship for Southern Utah University, she graduated with a degree in fine art and a three year degree in interior design. After leaving university, Rebecca taught calligraphy and watercolour classes, until the opportunity to work as a corporate designer came along. She now works from home as a free-lance artist for many companies.
