Tis the SEAson! Are you ready?



Yes it is the SEAson.........a very busy thyme for sure in my STUDIO!



Step inside to see what I have been working on!


OH.....don't be fooled by the "neatness" this is one of my archive pictures that I'm using!
I wouldn't dare post a picture 
of the 
"organized creative mess
my 
STUDIO 
is in 
at the moment!



Even with the help of my 
ELF HINKLEY
I am still feeling a bit behind!






HINKLEY 
has
 been packing boxes


of
  Christmas MAGIC
as fast 
as 
I can get all my projects painted!


Today 
I wanted to show you my latest project !
I decided to paint something for me!

Tis the SEAson
is a design 
by
Cynthia Erekson

This packet included 2 designs!


My Palette

Antique Gold, Camel, Coral Shell, Driftwood, Milk Chocolate, Warm White, Arbor Green, Charcoal Grey, Dove Grey, Heritage Brick, Neutral Grey, Bleached Sand, Coral Blush, Deep Burgundy, Lamp Black, Plantation Pine


Let's Paint!


This project was painted
 on 
vintage toweling

Painting on fabric can be a bit intimidating 
but 
having the right 
tools, brushes and paint 
really makes it quite easy
 and 
fun!


I used a
 Sewline Roller Ball Tracer Pen
 and 
white graphite paper 
to transfer my design 
to
 the fabric
(This tool will not rip your pattern and helps to easily transfer lines to cloth)


I also keep a TIDE to Go Pen handy 
for any accidental paint smudges 
on your fabric that 
hopefully won't happen!

I used 
Scharff Moon  and Stain It 
series brushes
along with
Silver Brush LTD. 
Ultra Mini , Designer Rounds and Lettering Brush


The Santa's are undercoated 
using
thinned paint 
with the 
Stain It brush



Using thinned paint 
on the cotton cloth 
allows it
 to 
remain
 soft and pliable



Painting coat and other details


Painting face and beard



Finished!
I heat set the paint with a hot iron and pressing cloth prior to sewing


Now to stitch my pillow!


Pillow #1 is done!



Starting the second pillow


These designs painted up really quick!






Second pillow is done!




While I was working on the pillows I also needed a quick hostess gift!
I had a small wood sled in my "stash"


I base coated it 
and 
painted one of the Santa designs on it




DecoArt 
provided me with the products 
to 
complete these projects
as part of
 their
Helping Artist
and 
Blogger Outreach Programs

Thank you DecoArt!

Tis The SEAson!




Happy Painting!

    1. Thank you so Brenda! I mostly use Scharff brushes which I buy when I go to NET but they can be purchased directly from Scharff online. I also have a lot of Silver LTD brushes for detail work.
