Dear Lee,
Yeeeeeeouch! I hope the pain in your head is not as "out spoken" as
the pain in my back (and other interesting places) from lifting weights.
(all too true!) Thanks so much for the how to on alphabet stencils ...
always wondered how to put them together. :)

Dear Miss Mairzie, thank you very much, and of course, after doing the full alphabet it occoured to me to just make a stencil that simply says "Merry Christmas":eek::p:o:rolleyes::D:)

ps, lay down that AR mouse for a day and take it easy;)

The advantage to preparing your text in other programs before putting into artrage is that you can resize (before painting your stencil) etc without having to redo every letter,
also makes keeping everyting in line easier,(tho sometimes I do like the disorganised look)
The alteration to a previous painting was done two ways,
the first part was using mr stencil (i think) ice font letter at a time,
the happy new year was an import from microsoft paint
