I had this super cute overall skirt that needed just a little something. So with minimal supplies, you can do it, too!
The stencil we are using today is L797 Daisy Daisy by Wendy Brightbill. I have also chosen two bright colors of Golden Paints~ Hansa Yellow Medium and Naphthol Red Light both warm colors. Along with Textile Medium by Delta. This medium thins out the paints just a little for easier application. Follow directions if you choose to use a fabric medium.
With a dense sponge (this is Cut and Dry Foam by Ranger) apply the yellow through the stencil, I have taped off a few of the close opening of the other flowers just to be safe.
Do this in a few areas with a variety of the different Daisies, being sure to wipe the back in case there is any paint seepage.
I have also applied a mix of the Hansa Yellow and Golden Titanium White after applying the first layer to give a bit of highlight and depth to the petals.
After petals are dry, reposition the stencil to add the red for the centers, you can tape off this area if you want a precise application, I was okay if some of the red went onto the petals.
Once the paint was dry, I used a black Posca Pen and freehanded the petals and centers for an additional pop. This step is optional but I really think they help the flowers stand out. If you are uncomfortable with the free handing these, you can always use the stencil to do this step.
I also added a few of the small daisies in red in two places, following the same steps as I did with the yellow.
Here it is completed, isn't it just the cutest now? I love it and wear it with pride.
I hope I have inspired you to give this a try and have a blessed day.
Very cute and cheerful project - thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
