Below are some of the items I took to a recent art/craft swap. I have an abundance of burlap left over from last year’s Art in the Garden event and this was the perfect opportunity to use it.Following instructions on the Silhouette School site, I cut stencils from freezer paper using my Silhouette Portrait. After the stencil was cut, I ironed it onto the burlap, paying close attention to getting the edges adhered. In a couple of spots I did have a small paint bleed; with the burlap it was easy to disguise by using a matching thread and stitching over the bleed.
I saw a pillow similar to this on Pinterest; being somewhat southern here in Western Kentucky, it seemed like something that would resonate with our local artist/crafters.
I stole this idea from an up scaled gift shop. I used canvas on it as well as on the bird pillow.
For the placemats I chose to stencil Enjoy your food! in four different languages.
I love the Portrait as I can create any design or sentiment I can imagine.
I have a few ideas floating in my head for pillows for our new screened porch and my daughter-in-law would like some beach themed pillows for her lanai. This week my 15-year old granddaughter will be visiting the studio. She has requested some stenciling for a lamp shade. My Portrait will be getting quite a work-out!
