Carpe Diem - Live In The Moment


Paint your plain throw pillow "Carpe Diem" to remind you of positive words every time you see it using our phrase stencils or saying stencils. These are also perfect stencils for scrapbooking and also great stencils for shirts to DIY.

Carpe Diem is a Latin aphorism usually translated to "seize the day" or more recently as "live in the moment". The phrase was historically used to urge someone to make the most of the present time and give little thought to the future, though it has gradually shifted toward an expression of mindfulness and appreciating the current moment. Artwork around this phrase really took off in France and spread to other parts of Europe during the Industrial Revolution as it proved capable of capturing the mood and culture of modernity and productivity.

You can use this stencil for walls, tiles, floors, fabric, wood, and other surfaces. It comes in three different materials: the Standard Brilliant Blue Stencil Plastic, The Ultra Flexible Food Grade Clear Color, and The Ultra Durable Museum or Exhibit Grade White Color Plastic. All materials are reusable though the thicker material has a much longer life span. This design can be custom-sized, for an additional fee. Simply send us a message to have the size tailored to your project needs!
