YES!!! You read that right -- stencils in the kitchen. This week, the entire creative team was challenged to take the stenciling into the kitchen and here's my take on the task. I've included a short tutorial and a few pro tips to help you get started using your stencils in an unexpected way.
Brownies Are Always a Winner
Step 1: Make the Brownies
PRO TIP: This frosting has coconut oil in it, so let your brownies cool completely before spreading it on, otherwise you'll have have a runny, melty mess.
Step 2: Pick Your Stencils and Set Up Your Work Area
I also set up my work space to make sure I would have the best possible outcome on my first attempt. I didn't have to work hard to convince my husband to help me -- the reward of brownies was all he needed for him to become my personal stencil-holding-partner.
I used a paper plate, a bowl, and spoon, and a mesh shifter to make the stenciling process easier.
PRO TIP: You'll need two sets of hands for this project, so find someone who can assist you with either holding the stencil in place or sprinkling the powdered sugar.
STEP 3: Stencil Your Heart Out
I started with a stencil that I would typically use for the background of an art journaling page or mixed media canvas: Borderlines by Seth Apter from the December 2017 Stencil Club set.
STEP 4: Enjoy the Fruits of Your Labor
So I'm curious, have you stenciled on food before? Are you eager to try this? If so, I'd love to see what you create. Snap a pic and share it on social media. Be sure to tag me (@kialagives) on Instagram.
