The Silhouette Challenge that I am a part of has chosen ‘fabric’ as the theme for this month.
Last month was ‘organizing’ and I posted a fun way to get a kid’s desk sorted out. This month’s theme has so many possibilities but my mind is stuck in this office redo that we have going on. So I thought I would make a small piece of art for the shelves that will be above the desk.
Ready to have your mind blown?
You might want to sit down and brace yourself.
This is going to be legen…
…wait for it…
What did I tell you…mind blowing.
Anyhooooooooo, it is just a little easy fabric art that I whipped up with the Silhouette machine and the Silhouette brand fabric interfacing.
I noticed a shirt hanging in my closet the other day that I haven’t worn since Bruiser was 2 (he is almost 7 now…) and I thought “I don’t want to wear it, but I can’t throw it away because it’s black and white striped!” It really is an addiction with me. I’m working through my issues…
Since the office is right off of the dining room and we have stripes in there I thought it would be nice to bring in a few to the office.
After I ironed on the interfacing material and cut out the star, I ironed it onto an 8×8 canvas that I had sitting around. The edges of the canvas are painted gold for a little glam and the front is painted with ASCP Antibes and waxed with Beverly (it’s a long story).
I thought about adding text to the canvas as well, something like ‘Oh my stars’ –it has been brought to my attention that I say that a lot– but thought the simple graphic was much more me. So while this easy fabric art piece might not be Sistine Chapel worthy (or even 16 chapel worthy–as my kids used to say), it is perfect for my little office.
Oh and the “H” on the mug that is in the picture was also made with my silhouette. I just cut a stencil and used a gold Sharpie paint marker. I have read all sorts of posts about baking them at 350 to set the design so that they can be machine washed later, but I haven’t found that to be the case. Sadly. But you can hand wash these suckers, so I am happy with that.
What do you think? Is there a 12-step program for stripe addiction? (I hope not)
