I LOVE using textiles in my creations….
vintage fabrics, lace, burlap and canvas
are among my favorites.
So…..when I received my Canvas Corp Burlap Pillow Round…
I couldn’t WAIT to play with it!!
…..and here is my finished product!
I do have to say this was my first try at stenciling on burlap….
I was very unsure of how it was going to work
due to the weave of the fabric and the density of the fibers…
but I was going to give it a try anyways!
I chose the Crafters Workshop ~ Quatrefoil Reversed 12×12 template and
a bit of Precious Metal Effect Paint ~ Mother of Pearl
and a makeup sponge,
…..can I say…. it worked WONDERFULLY!
Just a hint of color on the Canvas Corp Light Pink heart….PERFECT!
Now when it comes to stenciling on canvas….
to me…..that is easy peasy!
I used the Crafters Workshop ~ Mini Chickenwire Reversed 6×6
and Sketch Grid 12×12
and applied small amounts of
Precious Metal Effect Paint ~ Gold
with a same makeup sponge.
I accented the pillow with
Mother of Pearl Buttons and 7Gypsies Hardware and Metals.
I finished off my pillow with a Canvas Corp Burlap flower
more 7 Gypsies Hardware and Metal and a big ole Mother of Pearl button
and LOTS of hand stitching and Multi Medium to hold it all together.
I haven’t decided yet if I am going to stuff it and use
it as a pillow or hang it on my wall….
WHAT do you think??
I hope you have enjoyed my experiment….
may just have to TRY this AGAIN!
