What You'll Need
  • French memo board
  • Fabric medium
  • Delta Ceramcoat acrylic paint: Fuchsia, Lilac Dusk
  • Plaid FolkArt acrylic paint: Medium Yellow
  • Plaid Apple Barrel Colors acrylic paint: Kiwi
  • DecoArt Americana acrylic paint: Graphite
  • 1-inch flat brushes, 2
  • 3/4-inch stencil brushes, 2

  • 5/8-inch stencil brush
    Instructions

    Step One: Before stenciling, follow manufacturer's instructions to add fabric medium to the paint.

    Step Two: The ribbon divides the bulletin board into diamond-shape blocks. Using 1-inch flat brushes,

    paint the diamonds Fuchsia and Medium Yellow, creating stripes of diamonds across the board in a harlequin pattern.

    Move the ribbon out of the way as you work, being careful not to get any paint on it. Let dry.

    Step Three: Position stencil A in the center of a Fuchsia diamond, with the top pointed in any direction.

    Mark registration points; stencil Kiwi with a 3/4-inch brush. Let dry; repeat for complete coverage.

    Step Four: Repeat step 3 in all Fuchsia diamonds, rotating the direction of the butterfly

    randomly for greater visual interest.



    Step Five: Repeat steps 3 and 4 in all Medium Yellow diamonds, using Lilac Dusk instead of Kiwi paint.

    Step Six: Align stencil B on a butterfly; stencil Graphite with a 5/8-inch brush. Repeat on all butterflies.
