I tend to be one of those people who gets stuck in a rut.
And it happened with my cookie decorating.
There are SO many techniques out there, and I haven't tried so many of them.
Like I said, I get stuck in a rut...and more than anything...
It's a little bit of fear...a little bit of laziness...a little bit not wanting to "rock the boat".
Call it what you will...I decided it was time to GET OUT of the rut and start learning new things and trying out some of these techniques that are new to me.
I've had an airbrush for quite some time, but it has always intimidated me a little to be honest.
Well, I got a whole bunch of new stencils at my cookie gathering in Livonia last week, so I decided I needed to give them a whirl.
I dug out my airbrush and got to work.
Once I started playing, it was actually pretty fun.
Granted, I still need some practice to perfect the skill...but hey...
I DID IT.
Now I'm afraid I'm going to become addicted to stenciling and I'm going to want ALL of the cool designs out there.
There are so many amazing stencils that are sold by some of the cookiers.
This is just a sample of a few I got in my swag bag last week.
Hopefully, I'll stay OUT of this rut and keep learning new things.
