Weekly Shape Challenge & Giveaway

Well happy Friday, everyone! I’m here today with another shape challenge! This week’s challenge is to create a NEW project using any shape/s you’ve downloaded from the Silhouette online store!  {of course this would also include the free shape of the week! :) }
The shapes I chose for my project today are a couple of  airplane tiles that are fairly new in the store. {There have been a lot of fun ones added lately!} I had a couple of square blocks of wood left over from another project so I thought I could use them to make some cute book ends, which would be perfect for a little boy’s room!

To make them, I cut the shapes out of stencil vinyl and applied the stencils to the blocks of wood. Then, instead of paint, which is what I normally use, I went with a dark wood stain.  I just love the contrast it has with the natural wood, it has almost a burnt look to it. Kinda fun!

I hope you all have some fun with this challenge and try a new technique or product you haven’t worked with before!  {some of you even have a long holiday weekend, perfect time to create! :) }

    Since we are in such a “Pinterest” world now, why can’t we pin your posts? It would be so helpful to have a board with all your tips & ideas!!
