Morning Friends and Crafters, I am sharing another project that I made using a stencil and Luster Paints from Be Creative. I always like to do something different to get more value from my goodies. For this project I didn't want to use it as a stencil so I used it for the pattern and shape. I also used the Luster paint to make an interesting background on calico to make a wall hanging.
I have to appologise for the lack of photos in this one, I really dont know where they disappeared to.
You will need:
Be Creative Beautify Stencil
Luster paints Bronze, Pearl and Gold
Matching Embroidery Threads
Step 1: Start by colouring a piece of Calico, large enough for your design. I added to Luster paints to add texture, dimension and interest to the fabric.
Step 2: Pencil through the stencil to mark the design onto the fabric. Then stitch the design with the fabric in a hoop to keep the fabric taught. When finished add some decorative beads.
Step 3: Cut 2'' strips of Calico, enough to form a frame around the piece.Cut this on the bias I have dyed this by boiling it in a pan with walnut shells to give a matching colour. Once dry covert this to Bias Binding ready to add to the project as a frame. I have splatted this with some Pearl Luster paint and stitched around the project to finish.
Thank you for joining me today, I hope you have enjoyed the tutorial I have shared along with the finished project. I do hope you will join me very soon when I will share some more. For now Take care and Happy Crafting.xxx
