If you have been following all my posts, you might remember my “Whale Bag” I made for my mom. This project is similar only it’s on a piece of board I can hang on a wall, and I have a few more to go with this project. –So stay tuned–
First thing I did to start my “Hand-Drawn Cricut-Made Stencil Whale Board” project, was open a new project in Cricut Design Space and cut my hand-drawn whale out on Cricut’s Stencil Vinyl.
While my Cricut Explore was cutting my whale out, I went ahead and started on my board and painted my first coat of paint on the front and sides. Here I used the “satin Dark Lapis” color paint.
Once my whale was finish getting cut out, I carefully removed the middle pieces front the bottom layer stencil, but it wasn’t until later that I did the same for the top layer stencil.
After a couple more coats of paint letting each coat dry for at least an hour as instructed, I was ready to carefully place the bottom layer of my whale stencil in the spot I wanted it to go.
With my whale stencil in place, I carefully started painting the middle of the stencil using the “satin Coal” paint. Again, I added three coats allowing each coat to dry at least an hour each time.
Once the bottom layer of my whale was finished drying thoroughly, I carefully placed my top layer stencil to matchup with the bottom layer as well as possible. Then using the “satin White” color paint, I carefully painted the inside of the stencil. Again, for this layer, I used three coats, letting each dry accordingly.
There you go! A cute and easy “Hand-Drawn Cricut-Made Stencil Whale Board” painted on a board I can use to decorate my apartment. Hope you enjoyed! Be sure to check back for the rest of my “Sea Creature Boards.”
