Textiles and Templates

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!

My Life Heart Pillow by Lynne ForsytheI 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!

My Heart Pillow by Lynne ForsytheI just LOVE how it came out!

My Heart Pillow by Lynne ForsytheNow 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.

My Heart Pillow by Lynne ForsytheI finished off my pillow with a Canvas Corp Burlap flower
accented with
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.

My Heart Pillow by Lynne ForsytheI 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!
