    Step 0 Example
  2. Set the DecoArt Personally Yours Initial Impressions Sleek Stencil in place on the tote, spelling out the word "CREATE". (Refer to photo.) Use a cosmetic sponge to dab on Sweet Mint avoiding the "A" in the top row; "R" in the middle row, and "T" in the bottom row, which will be painted later in Peacock Teal.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Continue the same process from step 2, avoiding the "R" in this row.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Continue the same process until you have spelled out "CREATE" three times. Avoid the "T" in this row.
    Step 3 Example
  5. Stencil the "A" "R" & "T" in Peacock Teal with the Initial Impressions Sleek Stencil.
