    Hello, Jana! I think Fly must be suffering from a brain cramp (ha ha...Fly!!!) and gave you a post on sticker creation instead of stencil creation! He's silly like that!!! LOL!!!

    Here is one that I found very informative in regards to taking an image from your hard drive and saving it as a stencil....which....I think is what you're wanting to do:

    Read down past Carl's posting question and read Someonesane's answer to Carl's thread. So, if you're scanning a picture in, save it as an image (JPEG, PNG, etc.) and then this is the image that you'll follow Someonesane's instructions to create a stencil with that saved image. I hope this helps!

    Dear Jana, i've had a lot of help making stencils from the wonderful ArtRagers here, it is so much fun but i still forget, this is the way i usually do it, please note that file pictures may not make a clear sharp stencil, have attached a picture made from the 'rose' stencil example,,, to make a clear sharp stencil you have to use a clear sharp picture, for instance you can, import a file picture to ArtRage, trace over it in heavy black paint on a new layer, click on that new layer and make a 'new stencil from layer contents',, hope i didn't confuse,, ,, just have fun!!!!
