FIRST ATTEMPT AT PRINTING
I spend a silly amount of time just looking at fabric. Ida love the stuff. So much so that I decided that now was the time to design a bit of textile of my very own.
I decided to use a stencil technique and, whilst not boring you with the full details, I did take lots of photos (there is a lovely end result - promise!)
Firstly I drew a simple floral design using a well trusted quilting template and cut out my stencils.
Then I applied two coats of my first acrylic colour on the design.
I had also made some foam stamps by cutting out a simple hand drawn flower, any leftover paint was used to stamp this design onto small pieces of notepaper. Waste not want not!
I then applied one coat of a darker green just on the centre of the stencils.
And the end result - a totally unique to me cushion!
I've got a horrible feeling this could get totally addictive!
