Autumn Pillow: Part I MAKING THE FRONT ACCENT BAND
I am so thrilled to be able to be on the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft blog this week and to be able to share with you how to make this fun little project; how to make a quick little whimsical pillow for your home.
I love all the colors of autumn. It is such a wonderful time of year. So it was AWESOME to use Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft's wonderful Mix & Match products to add color and create the realistic color hues I was looking for.
To create this project I first to cut out a strip of canvas. I then used my co-branded Susan K. Weckesser Inc. /Unity Stamp Co. Autumn Grunge stamp kit and inked them up with the Faber Castell wonderful l PITT artist pen in green gold 268.
After letting the images dry for just a minute, and it really is that fast, I took the same Faber-Castell PITT artist pens but in different colors and started to highlight and accent the leaf images.
What is wonderful about the Faber-Castell PITT artist pens is that while the ink is still fresh you can manipulate it. The colors are wonderful to blend. So feel free to dab a brush into some water and ‘play’ with the ink that you have put down. You will see that it gives you a lovely watercolor effect that is so pretty.
Tomorrow you will see how I make this strip of stamp images into a finished pillow that would match wonderfully in any living room. You will not what to miss this!
Have a wonderful and colorful day!
