603 Sweet Little BowPeggy Decker is one of the founding members of SALI(1985), now renamed IDAL, and was SALI’s first member to achieve CMST (Certified Master Stenciler, Teacher). She offered her talent to the world by creating her design business “Makin-It, Inc.” featuring pre-cut Stencils for Trompe L’Oeil, Wallborders, Furniture and Floors. In the late 1990’s I was privileged to purchase her line of stencils. She was one of the first designers and exhibitors at the first SALI (Stencil Artisans League Inc.)

I am happy to offer you 5 of her original designs at a significant discount. You can find the products at http://www.stencilwerks.com/store/ Double click on the 5 Featured Product pictures and you can order your choice of

How to Create Your Own IPhone Case

Standard

Create Your Own SmartPhone CoverIMG_0433Using your creativity to design an IPhone case is so easy! You can change your case every week, or  target your presentation to that special client. We artists are always thinking of new marketing techniques…here’s how:

Purchase a clear case for about $3.98 at your  local electronic store.
1. Take a picture, with your IPhone, of a room you just designed, a wall you faux finished or stenciled, a mural you have just completed
2. Download the photo to your PC using your favorite photo program (I happen to use Microsoft Digital Photo) and manipulate the color, exposure, size etc.
3. When you are happy with your photo manipulation,  resize the photo to the size of your clear phone case. Mine happened to be about 2 1/8″ x 4 1/4″.
4. Print the photo onto matte photo paper.
5. I suggest you draw the size of your photo case on scrap paper and slip it into the case. Make any adjustments and cut out your template. You may have to do this a few times to get it correct. When you have the perfect template, SAVE IT for later use.
6. Trace the template onto your photo. Don’t forget to cut out the camera lens area too. Use an xacto knife or small surgical scissors to trim your photo
7. Slide the finished photo into the clear case and attach to your IPhone.
