Cutting Edge Stencil...Test Run & Giveaway!

Giveaway found below!
I really love painting, but I am notorious for screwing up stencil work. I just work way too fast...aka not very patient! So, when Cutting Edge Stencil contacted me about reviewing one of their stencils I was a little nervous. Obviously, I decided to take on the challenge, but chose to play it safe for the first project. I wanted to start small so I could test out my stencil without ruining a section of a wall in my house (knowing my luck it would have been a mess). My master bedroom had a large empty wall which I had been meaning to fill with something and a large canvas which I had been meaning to paint, perfect!!

For my review, I chose the Marrakech Trellis Allover Stencil. This particular stencil comes in a short version and a long version. I chose to use the long version since I was tackling a larger surface and eventually would like to do an accent wall. The long version stencil is 24"x40" and the design itself is 21"x36". 

Stenciling was much easier than I expected and I am so pleased with how it turned out! My best advice to anyone attempting a stenciling project like this is to take your time and don't load up the roller with paint. If you glob on the paint it will run under the stencil edge and you will be left with a mess! I would also suggest investing in one of their dense foam rollers for your project.

Here is a great how to video from Cutting Edge Stencils that will help you get started! You can find more videos from Cutting Edge Stencil here.

    I was a HIV-AIDS patient and I got it from cheating on my wife. It was sort of a payback but a week later I was told by a friend that the person who I cheated with had the HIV-AIDS virus and did not tell me. I was so stupid by not using a condom I thought since he was an old school friend he was trustworthy. But I was wrong. I cried and cried. Two days later, I got a phone call from my friend and he told me about a person who is known by another friend, who can help me. I could not let my wife know what I was going through. I finally got his email address: and I emailed this man my story and he replied me immediately saying i should be calm and told me that everything will be OK. I could not come to terms with what I was hearing but then I concluded it did not matter because I was so broken I just needed help. I was going out of my mind literally. I was confused with what he was telling me, but I listened. He told me about some materials i need to buy that he needed to cast the spell and I said OK. I bought the materials to him, I sent down my picture to him and my positive result sheet and he replied me that i am going to be negative under 3days. I message Him every 2hours for 2day and I knew he thought that I was crazy but I did care I needed a shoulder. Behold, the third day he messaged me i should go for a test that i will be negative. My marriage could be broken because of a stupid mistake and my life was on the line. I remembered when I was going to get the results of my re-test I called him up again and told him that I was going to get my results today and his reply was “so" and that everything will be as he explained. I knew then that he was getting tired of me calling him, maybe I was wrong. Well I got my results and the first person I called was him - again. As he said hello I started to cry and cry. I could not believe it. I was given a second chance in life.This man is a great spiritual HIV/AIDS healer, his healing spell on aids healing is very powerful .please brothers and sister, contact Dr Ose
