Egyptian motifs that turn a bathroom into an ancient dream. Pictures of clowns, jack-in-the-boxes, and dinosaurs to cheer a child's room. Mystic designs like a zodiac wheel for a sense of peace and harmony. Stencils bring atmosphere to every area in the home, wonderfully transforming walls, picture frames, vases, fabrics, and furniture. And with more than 200 inspiring patterns from the best-selling author of several stenciling books, there's something to suit every lifestyle and get creative juices flowing. Themes are drawn from classic period pieces, like heraldic beasts and shields; nature's flowers, fruits, and animals; the grace of the human form (including art nouveau dancers); boldly geometric abstractions; and locations around the world. With instructions on materials, techniques, and creating your own designs, here's the source for stenciling knowledge and inspiration. 144 pages (all in color), 8 1/2 x 11.
