I will often sandwich warped pieces between two sheets of printer paper or newsprint and press it with a dry iron. It works faster than the heavy books.

That's a great idea! I will have to try that the next time I do this technique.

I'm sure thaat most of you ladies own some sort of punch? I have 3 Fiskars hand punches. I cut a small piece of acetate and randomly punched into them. Hopefully, this will give you all an idea of how easy it is to make a stencil.
I just had a thought, chicken wire could work,too.
Yes great idea, I had punched a few shapes, circles mostly to use to create moons & suns to sponge over a scene with inks, most times it would bleed under depending on the ink used...but with creating these backgrounds it won't matter so much if it bleeds, it'll only add to the piece. Thx

Roberta- They turned out wonderful! I like what you said about using the tape to hold it together, hey if it works ..anythings goes

Thank you Wolfseye!

I haven't yet tried this, but will let you know when I do and that is using transparencies to either cut or punch out shapes to make stencils. A couple of years ago at a contract job I was on, they were closing that office down and getting rid of a lot of old office supplies. I made out like a bandit! These transparencies have just been sitting in my craft room waiting to be used. Perhaps this is it...stay tuned...
