I wanted to share with you two cute new pillows I made using two different transfer methods!
And this is the first time you will be seeing pics of part of the living room.
I am not done painting in there but I am soo happy with the color so I thought I would share a little peak!
The monogrammed pillow was made using the freezer paper transfer method,
and the love birds pillow was made using the citra-solv method.
CitraSolv Method: So Easy! All you need is your fabric, the image you want printed with a laser printer, CitraSolv (a household cleaner), and a spoon. I always wear gloves since the cleaner concentrate is pretty strong. Also, some like to paint the CitraSolv on with a paint brush, I just prefer to wet a paper towel to wet the backside of the image. After the back of the image is dampened with the CitraSolv you use the backside of your spoon and rub the image into the fabric....
And this is how it looked when done!
Freezer Paper Transfer: Depending on your image this can be quick and easy. You trace your image on the non-glossy side of the freezer paper, then use an exact-o knife to cute out the image. Once done, you iron your freezer paper glossy side down onto the fabric. Using a stencil brush you can then paint on your image.
Make sure you iron on the paper really well to prevent the paint from seeping past the stencil!
Here are both the pillows in my newly painted living room!
I was at my sister-in-laws house when I saw her bathroom painted this color.
I did not waste anytime getting home and using that same color in my living room!
I think it's a beautiful blend of blue, green, and grey!
