Hand Painted Pillow Folk Art

I have seen so many pictures on blogs, sites, etc. of talented people painting chairs and other things that are covered with material. I really wanted to try this, so I had an old white pillow that I had taken the cover off of and started. I like the way it turned out, but I learned several things along the way. First for me, I need to paint the entire background before doing the image, because I found it was hard to go back and outline around the image....but I think it turned out pretty good. So, I would like to here from you on if you have ever painted on material and any tips you can give me. Blessings, Deborah

  1. I have not painted fabric, but I'm getting ready to try it! Thank you so much for linking up to our party! :)

  2. This turned out so fabulous! And colorful! And thanks for those fabric painting tips ...

    Thank you so much for sharing at our Crazy for Color link party!



  3. I'm a hat girl too - and this is such a fun pillow! You have serious skills!!

    So glad you joined our Color party!

    1. Kelly thank you so much for the kind words. As far as the skills go, I've just begun to feel comfortable taking compliments about my painting. I had to start crafting and such in 2008 when I became disabled. Making fun things to sell to make ends meet. I make jewelry, crafts, and basically taught myself how to paint. Please check out my blog for more paintings and I have a new pillow...and a great little hat. Blessings, Deborah
