StencilGirl Blog Hop — Kae Pea

Welcome everyone to another great blog hop from StencilGirl.  Today we are playing with Kae Pea’s(Kristen Powers) stencils.  Most of you who know me and read this blog regularly know that I am a big fan of re-use and that I have a passion for our rescue dogs…In this project I decided to combine those two passions to make my thoroughly Mod Pet Pad…Luckily I have a fantastic model right here in the house to show you how comfy the finished product is..



I started out with a piece of fabric given to me by a friend from a rummage box at her church sale.  I planned to use the felt with it, but the project too on a life of it’s own mid-stream. I used Kristen’s stencil Mid Century Modern Elements #1 and my  small gelli plate and over printed on the WRONG side of the fabric in my favorite colors orange and turquoise and in this case some yellows and greens.



I used Golden’s GAC-900 fabric painting medium mixed with acrylic paints because I wanted this Mod Pet Pad to be washable. I wanted to highlight certain design elements and add more so using permanent fabric markers I added MORE.  More is always better, right?  Well in this case, yes.



You can still see an homage to the fabric itself showing through the design elements which I quite like.  A quick stitch up  and some leftover padding made it nice and comfy to go on top of my raised mesh dog beds making the perfect winter time sleep accessory.  BUT remember I said MORE is better?  Well Kristen also is the owner of Rubbermoon Art Stamp Co. and a lovely artist in her own right.  I personally adore her charming designs and since she was nice enough to send us a couple of stamps, I had to pick and use this one on my project.

IMG_1210So I stamped all over the bed, because it is so true, I do love my doggies to the moon and back….IMG_1224

And my adoring Ryder obliged as our model so nicely.  Pup tested, Ryder approved.  Mod Pet Pad….more is a good thing.

Jump on board and visit all these wonderful artists to see their projects.  I am always in awe of what gets created and by all means leave a comment everywhere for your chance to win some stencils for yourself.  Now that a new year if upon us, check out StencilGirl Club and create something wonderful, don’t forget your Rubbermoon stamp’s too!

    LOVE THIS!! What a great way to start the new year.

    I have some fabric I’ve painted on the reverse side, too. Sometimes the back is better than the front. What a great way to honor those adorable pets. Bleubeard approves, too!!

  5. froebelsternchen January 3, 2014 at 4:20 am #

    Oh you did a great job here — and your lovely dog looks so happy..
    I think as a muse dog he really enjoys this unique handmade design…
    “What special dog I am?” he thinks in this moment!



  6. Denise Spillane January 3, 2014 at 7:32 am #

    I love this! And Ryder looks so cute on it. I never used GAC so now I have to try it. I plan to make my Dusty one. Hope the cats won’t steal it. Can you tell me about the best beds?

  7. Marilyn J. Rock January 3, 2014 at 7:34 am #

    I wish I were a doggie in your house 🙂 Beautiful patterned fabric you’ve created for your friend! I love it! What a cutie Ryder is! xo

    A wonderful doggie bed cussion , Corrine.

    xox, Dorthe

  25. Judy Shea January 3, 2014 at 10:37 am #

    Oh my goodness. How sweet!

  35. Jennifer January 3, 2014 at 3:33 pm #

    Love how you used the back of the fabric … adds a nice subtle layer to the stenciling. Wonderful!

  36. marylouh January 3, 2014 at 3:40 pm #

    Ryder is saying “thanks, mom. My bed is more comfortable and much better looking now”. And I’ll say thanks for the tips on painting – using the reverse of some material.

  37. SandyZ January 3, 2014 at 3:46 pm #

    So creative! And your conversational fun style just adds +++to your tutorial!

  51. Sharon Williams January 3, 2014 at 10:42 pm #

    I like the use of the fabric with your paints -never thought of using the back of the fabric this way

  52. Kathy adams January 3, 2014 at 11:09 pm #

    Love the idea of painting over an existing pattern. Very cute!

  53. Denise Bryant January 3, 2014 at 11:52 pm #

    Your pup looks very comfy on his new pillow! Great colors and technique!

  54. Gini Cooper January 4, 2014 at 1:51 am #

  55. Lisa Vice January 4, 2014 at 6:52 am #

    Happy New Year to you!

  62. Cath Sheard January 4, 2014 at 2:27 pm #

    Lucky Ryder! Pity Faith considers the biggest sofa is her pet pad and she’s all of 8lb! I love the project, and the repurposing.

  63. cheryl dobbe January 4, 2014 at 2:46 pm #

    I love the pet bed! As I have two rescues myself (a Doberman and a border collie), I see a few of these beds in my future!

  64. Nancy Curry January 4, 2014 at 2:46 pm #

    Great reverse technigue! I love the results and it would appear that Ryder did , too!

  65. Lisa January 4, 2014 at 3:47 pm #

  74. Marjie Kemper January 5, 2014 at 8:57 am #

    This is so fabulous! I shared it on Facebook the other day but only now got to see the finished project…. that stenciled fabric is killer cool and surely this pup rocks it!

  75. Amy David January 5, 2014 at 3:06 pm #

    Wow! I am a new ‘dabbler’ with the sewing machine and serger..what a wonderful way to incorporate your love of art and applying it to funky fun fabric. The outcome was an amazing, ‘Ryder approved’ piece of art!

  76. Janis in ID January 5, 2014 at 5:45 pm #

    A PURR-fect project for a kitty bed, too…..except that cats won’t use the beds you provide for them. It’s better as it is….for a dog!! 🙂

    Love this. My main medium is cloth and so love seeing the stencil and stamps used this way. And I love dogs (and cats). I was surprised when you decided to use the wrong side but what a masterful touch–it really worked so well. I’ve got to train my self to ask “what if” more often. Thank you for the inspirations.

  78. Linda on the Prairie January 5, 2014 at 7:40 pm #

    The back side of fabric is often more interesting than the front, so great idea! And thank you for your rescue work, a cause dear to my heart as well.

  79. Barb Rogers January 5, 2014 at 7:48 pm #

    LOVE this project and your use of color is grand!

  80. Carina Karlsson January 5, 2014 at 8:03 pm #

    My Ranger says Ryder is looking comfy and stylish.

  81. Rebecca Clarke January 5, 2014 at 11:39 pm #

    Oh my I never would have thought of using the back of the fabric, I had only ever considered the front. Thanks so much

  82. textilerecycler January 5, 2014 at 11:40 pm #

    I’m just amazed at the variety of ways everyone has used these stencils. Ryder is a lucky pooch.

  83. Sar Tann January 5, 2014 at 11:53 pm #

    The painted fabric is so cool. I never would have thought of this, love it.

    Thank you for sharing.

  84. Cheryl January 6, 2014 at 11:38 pm #

    A great reuse of fabric and a very original use of the stencils and stamps. Your puppy has a very crafty and artistic bed.

  85. Karen Chandler January 7, 2014 at 11:29 am #

    Sweet little pillow! I would love to try the fabric paints with stencils!

  86. REBECCA TILINSKI January 7, 2014 at 3:29 pm #

    Great use of fabric and stamps…thank you!

  87. Melissa January 7, 2014 at 6:08 pm #

    Ryder is a star!!!! I love the layered effect of the color

  88. Geri Johnson January 7, 2014 at 6:36 pm #

    What a great idea to use the BACKSIDE of a fabric! I’m sure everybody has some fabric that’s not a favorite & now they can go ahead & use it by just decorating the other side! I know I’ve got one or a hundred and one like that in my fabric stash! A really great use of the supplies & I’m sure you pup will enjoy his new cushy! Thanks for sharing! 😀

  89. Jeannie January 7, 2014 at 8:43 pm #

    What a lucky dog! I love what you created! Your blog is awesome also! How cute is this FONT???

  90. becky January 7, 2014 at 10:59 pm #

    That looks like pup!

  91. Valerie Hayden January 8, 2014 at 1:19 am #

    Love this! Great colors (more is better) and such a worthwhile creation. Love your dog what a face.

    Makes me want to try fabric on my Gelli plate with stencils, and I have plenty ot Rubber Moon stamps…though there is always room for more. Thanks for sharing.

  92. Donna Gibson January 8, 2014 at 9:46 am #

    Awww, my doggies would love one of these! And Ryder is so cute!
