Autumn Pillow: Part II

Susan4

Hello! It’s Susan here today again and I am going to show you how to complete the cute little whimsical pillow using the Faber-Castell PITT artist pen big brushes and my Autumn Grunge stamps.   Missed the first post?  Read it here.

After I stamped the front of the canvas strip and color in the images in all with Faber-Castell PITT artist pen big brushes I flipped over the strip and pressed the edges.

Using fabric adhesive, I glued lovely ribbon to the back. This pillow is just to look at so nice strong fabric glue is awesome for what I needed. I have also used a sewing machine at this point if I am making a pillow that I think is going to get into a pillow fight with one of one of my teens!

Taking two canvas squares which I had sewn together, I then took scissors and went around the edges to make a fringe. I then used an iron-on adhesive and attached the stamped band to the front of the pillow.

I wanted to tie in the color  to make the whole pillow look united so I used the Faber-Castell PITT artist pen big brush to color and ‘grunge’ the corners of my pillow. I colored directly onto the pillow and then I took a brush dipped into water and blended out the color. Love the effect!

Now I have a super cute accent pillow that took me no time at all to finish and was super fun to do to! It has added a little bit of fall flare to our living room!

Have fun and add some color to your day …. You will love it!
