Stencil mania

How do you do it? Seriously!? Some of you out there make stenciling look like it is a nice walk in the park on a sunny breezy day. Yeah um SIKE! Stenciling is a pain in the you know what! It is about impossible to keep it straight and thanks to my wonderful textured walls, it bleeds through. So as you can see I am a little annoyed :). Don't worry I am a determined person. Any tips or tricks anyone out there could give me would be well appreciated. Hey! I have a great idea! If you are feeling really helpful, how about coming over and finishing this wall for me! Please?! Alright crickets on that one......... Here is a sneak peak at what I have been working on for the past two days (and which will probably take me another month or so to finish, so I hope you aren't eager to see the end result).

 I have spent about 3 hours and only have about a four by eight foot area covered. I have a TON of touch ups to do and probably about 10 more hours of stenciling. Ughhh! Wish me luck!

It looks great! I am too chicken to tackle this project. I can't handle that much teeny tiny detail. I would go CRAZY! Picture me losing it after about two stencils and just throwing the paint at the wall. YOU CAN DO IT! I can't wait to see the reveal!!
