Five Stenciling Tips & Olive Leaf Giveaway

I am slowly, but surely working on creating my own little oasis in my master bedroom.  I started out with my Master Bedroom Walk-In Closet and then moved on to painting it a calming color, which was not an easy endeavor due to the cathedral ceilings.  Since Avery’s arrival I’ve made it my goal to add unique touches that reflect more of my personality.  The latest addition was the stenciling above our bed of a Dogwood Branch from Olive Leaf Stencils.  I learned some valuable lessons along the way and I thought it only fair that I should share my Stenciling Tips with you.  Plus, I’ve got a giveaway for you of any stencil you choose from Olive Leaf Stencils.
