  5. Cut inside heart pattern. I like to use a craft knife to start my cut and then finish with scissors.

  6. Remember that you are cutting the inside of the cut from the plastic. This will create a stencil. Be sure that you leave plenty of stencil plastic around the outside of your heart. This will help to keep the extra paste off your canvas.

  7. Place stencil on canvas. For the next step, I just hold the stencil in place but if you like, you can also add double stick tape to the back of the stencil to help hold it in place on the canvas while you apply your texture paste.

  8. Squeeze a generous amount of texture paste on canvas.

  12. Load stencil paint creme onto stencil brushes. I like to have my brushes pre-loaded with color before I start painting my project.
