Welcome to the Crafter's workshop/Balzer Designs Blog hop. I am so excited to be part of this blog hop because i do truly love the Crafter's Workshop & their stencils and so love Julie, my wickedly talented friend. If you haven't jumped into stencils yet, now is the time. So many creative ideas on this blog hop you will sure to be inspired. So let's get started!
Today's hop features the Triangle Plaid Stencil. I was so excited to play with this stencil that i used it in a couple ways. I love playing around and seeing what crafty endeavor lies just around the corner.
I grabbed the stencils, some Maya Mists, and some fabric (unbleached muslin & a calico print). I spritzed through the stencil and sprayed the background. I would then flip the stencil over and using a brayer, i rolled the mists into the fabric. I used my iron and some paper towel to heat set (only the Non-Metallics Heat Set) the the mist into the fabric so it won't bleed. I love the way how both fabrics turned out. Now what to do with all this fabric?
I made this little clutch using some of my new fabric prints. I couldn't believe i had the perfect zipper for the fabric. Loved how it turned out but decided it needed another pop of yellow so i made this flower out of fabric.
I still have tons of fabric left waiting to be used. This one is already cut & ready to be turned into a "birdie sling" using my Amy Butler pattern. These colors looks so pretty together. I also have the calico print that i am thinking of turning into a tote for me. I am so addicted!
Next using my Cocoa Daisy September kit & the Triangle Plaid Stencil, i created a layout. At first i just used my maya road lemon mists but decided it needed a punch of color. I grabbed Salmon Metallic and put the stencil right over the layout again and sprayed. Easy Peasy.
