Booklist Review

A Canadian stenciling instructor enthusiastically introduces basic techniques, projects, and design influences in this exquisite paperbound manual. Buckingham explains that stenciling is simply the "use of a template to make a printed image of something," and in order to create an individualized handmade look, experimentation is encouraged. An introduction to basic procedures is followed by step-by-step exercises, project instructions, and a brief history of Canadian stencil design and styles. Clear color photographs and beautifully rendered stencils accent the easy-to-follow instructions. An entire chapter is devoted to children's room stenciling; other projects range from greeting cards and quilts to stenciled walls and furniture. A highly recommended choice for craft and decorating collections. Index. --Sue-Ellen Beauregard
